This page describes the state of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway in 2004.  It was developed as an overview of the planning process at that time.  Current information about this and other components of New York City's bicycle network can be found at the Department of Transportation website.  See more information about the Department of City Planning's Bicycle and Greenway Planning program.

Greenway users continue on St. Nicholas Avenue until West 151st Street, where the route diverges to St. Nicholas Place. At West 155th Street, the bike route meets the on-ramp for the Harlem River Drive. In 2003 the New York State Department of Transportation intalled a separated, two-way bike path along the ramp, allowing greenway users to access the Harlem River Speedway, two new miles of greenway between West 163rd Street and Dyckman Street. The new speedway is actually a reconstruction of a riverside walkway and carriage path that date to 1898. The path is a Class 1 facility that takes riders along a beautiful stretch of the otherwise inaccessible Harlem River. Inland access to the new Speedway is not possible between West 155th and Dyckman streets as the speedway runs directly between the Harlem River Drive and the Harlem River.
