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 completed route of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway creates a loop around the borough. See photos and maps of the existing greenway.

There are several sites along the Manhattan waterfront where the path is not permanent, is inadequate or does not exist. These missing waterfront links make a continuous waterfront route impossible at this time. See photos of current waterfront conditions and learn about plans for improvement.

The long-term plan is to have a waterfront path along almost the entire shoreline of Manhattan. Learn about the changes that will happen in the next several years.
