Want to know where the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is heading? Download Building The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway (.pdf), a comprehensive look at the whats, whys and hows of this protected pedestrian and bicycle route.
With 5 miles already in place, the Greenway has started to become a reality for walkers, joggers, bikers and other Brooklynites looking to commute along and enjoy their waterfront. Released by New York City Department of Transportation (DOT), the plan details what the 14 mile route will look like, as well as how it will be implemented. The finished route will connect communities along Brooklyn’s waterfront from Newtown Creek in Greenpoint to the beginning of the Shore Parkway Greenway in Bay Ridge.
The Greenway has developed thanks to a partnership of public agencies and private organizations, including NYC DOT, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) and Regional Plan Association (RPA). BGI and RPA have worked together for over a decade to design and build support for the Greenway.
