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 FDR lies directly on the water’s edge north of the United Nations. Its proximity to the water between East 51st and East 60th streets makes a waterfront greenway impossible without cantilevered structures. The current reconstruction of the FDR requires that northbound traffic be routed onto a temporary structure built over the river, thereby delaying any permanent construction of a greenway.
