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.

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.
