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.

View Detailed Map

Dyckman Street is a short but busy link between the east and west sides of northern Manhattan. It is currently the most direct link between the greenways on the Harlem and Hudson Rivers. Dyckman Street is a Class 2, on-street route from Tenth Avenue to Nagle Avenue; a Class 3, on-street route from Nagle Avenue to Broadway; then again a Class 2, on-street route until Riverside Drive.

Greenway users who want to stay closer to the water or go to the Bronx may use the recommended on-street route up Tenth Avenue to the Broadway Bridge and then cycle back along Seaman Avenue. Pedestrians may also use Tenth Avenue, but they, unlike cyclists, can walk through Inwood Hill Park to connect with the path south of Dyckman Street. Wheeled users and pedestrians can access the Harlem River at West 202nd and West 215th streets, but there is no access along the water. Inwood Hill Park does not allow cycling.
