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.




In March of 2002, Ted Wright and Amy Pfeiffer of the Department of City Planning took a bike ride around Manhattan with a digital video camera and recorded scenes from their ride. In August of 2003, Rex Hodgson and Kate Dyson biked along the new route and recorded that ride and the improvements to the path. These video clips come from both rides, and take into account most of the recent improvements to the greenway. In some sections, however, they still depict conditions that have since been altered.

In the video clips both route names and recent improvements are labeled. Improvements to look for include new pavement markings, new greenway signs, bike crossings and lights and whole new segments of path.

Select a section of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway to view a video clip illustrating a biker’s perspective.
