Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) is the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization planning for the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway and its long-term stewardship. The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is a 14-mile long recreational and transportation facility that will connect four regional parks and numerous new waterfront open spaces. The greenway will also remove stormwater from NYC’s combined sewer system with the use of green infrastructure improvements along the East River watershed.
