The path that currently runs along the Henry Hudson Parkway between Dyckman and West 181st Street, while excellent, is not directly on the waterfront. The waterfront is currently home to the tracks for Amtrak’s Empire Line. Adjacent to the tracks from Dyckman Street to West 187th Street, an unpaved path has no upland access and no delineated point of exit from West 187th Street. From West 187th Street to West 181st Street the path is rocky and not maintained; it is not suitable for wheeled users and pedestrians should use caution.
DPR has partial funding for the paving and cantilevering of the waterfront route and expects it to be complete by 2008.
