BGI and the Greenway

Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) is the 501c3 non-profit organization planning for the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway and its long-term stewardship. This 14-mile landscaped route, physically separated from traffic and with separate paths for pedestrians and cyclists, will run from Greenpoint through Sunset Park.

Five miles of the greenway are already open with interim treatments, and it is a popular cycling and running route. Once complete, the greenway will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces, as well as four major regional parks, comprising more than 200 acres of open space in one of the most densely developed waterfronts in the world.
