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.

From the Broadway Bridge to Dyckman Street along the waterfront, a1.49-mile stretch runs past Columbia University’s Baker Field and through Inwood Hill Park. Currently pedestrians are allowed to use the path in the park, but cyclists are not. It is unlikely that the waterfront in the north of the park along the Harlem River will ever have a bicycle path because of its designation as a wilderness area. Columbia University’s Baker Field also effectively prevents a greenway being implemented along the Harlem River shore. In addition to these two impediments, the bluffs in Inwood Hill Park effectively prevent waterfront access. DCP recommends an inland route through this part of Manhattan.
