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 current off-street path in East River Park is shared by wheeled users and pedestrians and abuts the FDR Driver rather than the waterfront. The waterfront esplanade in the park is currently closed to the public due to a crumbling bulkhead and utility work by Con Edison. As Con Edison completes its work, DPR plans to follow piece by piece and reconstruct the bulkhead. This should be complete and the waterfront open to pedestrians again by 2007, at which point the path adjacent to the FDR will be improved and designated for wheeled users. The whole project is expected to be complete in 2008.
