Support the Greenway and safe open space in Brooklyn
2020 was the Greenway’s busiest year to date as tens of thousands of people turned to Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway as a vital open space for safe transportation, exercise and fresh air, and to connect with family and friends in a socially-distant way.
BGI is working harder than ever to realize the full vision of the 26-mile Greenway when New Yorkers need it more than ever. But we need your help to realize this vision.
With your support, 2021 will be a big year for BGI:
• We’ll continue our foundational work with the City to complete the 26-mile Waterfront Greenway and create more open space in our borough
Join us to support the completion of the Greenway and the vision of a greener, stronger, healthier Brooklyn.
