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.

Between Dyckman Street and West 201st Street it is difficult to access the waterfront because of the various private owners and municipal uses there. In many sections the waterfront is fenced-off and inaccessible to the public. Waterfront properties in this section are occupied by the Department of Parks & Recreation, Con Edison, New York City Transit, the Department of Business Services, the Department of Sanitation, and Paragon Cable. While it is unlikely that all these entities would agree to a greenway through their properties, consistent with the City’s Sherman Creek Task Force plans, a waterfront path between these two streets is envisioned for some undetermined time in the future DCP’s current recommendation is that a permanent route be put in place on Tenth Avenue, though eventually some sort of cantilevered structure may be possible.
