COVID-19 Updates

Continue to check this page for the latest updates related to BGI operations and program changes due to the Coronavirus outbreak in New York City. Please also follow @BKGreenway and @NavalCemeteryLandscape on social media channels for updates and other related content.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is a safe route for exercise, recreation, and transportation. 

When using the Greenway for transportation or recreation, please be mindful of other users by keeping a safe distance [runners and cyclists moving at higher speeds need to allow more space] and staying informed on the latest guidelines from the Department of Health. Keep yourself by washing your hands, gear, and bike as soon as you get home.

Have You Seen The New Signs On The Greenway?

To help ensure a safe experience for all Greenway users, BGI has installed special COVID-19 signs along the entire 26-mile route from East New York to Greenpoint. To read more about the new Greenway signs, click here. 

The Naval Cemetery Landscape is Open.

The Naval Cemetery Landscape at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is open for solitary enjoyment. To ensure staff and public safety, we are limiting the number of people allowed in at one time to provide space for physical distancing and require that all visitors wear a face covering. The 1.7-acre Landscape is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 AM – 6 PM. Be sure to follow @navalcemeterylandscape to visit virtually and as we develop new online programs.

You can help BGI.

Have you been using The Greenway during the NY’s PAUSE period for exercise, recreation, or transportation? Please support this public utility and consider donating the savings from your monthly gym membership or MetroCard to BGI!
During this uncertain moment, we have the opportunity to reshape New York into a greener, healthier, and more sustainable city. BGI is fighting for temporary spaces, but we need permanent infrastructure for alternative transportation. Help build the city we want to see in the future. Become a monthly donor to BGI to support The Greenway and the vision of a greener, more connected Brooklyn.


Stay safe and stay healthy!
