Queens East River and North Shore Greenway, 2006

Queens East River and North Shore Greenway, 2006The Queens East River and North Shore Greenway is a proposed 10.6-mile urban shared-use trail, intended to provide access to the shoreline in Queens and improve non-motorized commuter options.

It will connect the neighborhoods of Long Island City, Hunters Point, Ravenswood, and Astoria in western Queens with Steinway, Jackson Heights and East Elmhurst in northern Queens and connect four parks on the East River shoreline. This proposed greenway is part of an ambitious multi-year effort to implement a comprehensive citywide network of cycling lanes and greenways.

The 1997 New York City Bicycle Master Plan identified a 900-mile bicycle network that incorporated the 350-mile network of bicycle and pedestrian paths recommended in the 1993 Greenway Plan for New York City. That plan also highlights the East River section of the Queens East River and North Shore Greenway as a priority route. This project seeks to establish continuous waterfront access as recommended in the City’s Comprehensive Waterfront Plan of 1992.

The master plan is available as one complete document ( PDF Document 9.5 mb) or by chapters in PDF format:
