What an incredible year it has been at Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI)! 


Since its founding in 2004, BGI’s revolutionary thinking and thoughtful engagement catalyzed the development of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. Now in our 15th year, BGI continues to advocate for the Greenway’s timely completion and works to engage Greenway users in its beautification and long-term care – all while connecting Brooklyn’s diverse communities.

Our Annual Report, Building Connections in Brooklyn and Beyond, is a tribute to the visionaries, advocates, supporters, volunteers, elected officials, government agencies, and all those who have advanced the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. Without their generous commitment to our mission, we would not have today’s Greenway!

Thank you, and enjoy!
