Use The Greenway Today
Six miles of the Greenway are already in place, including Kent Avenue, Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Columbia Street, and the northern end of Van Brunt St. Two additional miles along West Street and around the Brooklyn Navy Yard will break ground next.
Ride The Greenway
Every summer BGI hosts The Epic Ride, a 40-mile ride along the Brooklyn-Queens Waterfront to Rockaway Beach.
Run The Greenway
Each fall, BGI hosts the Brooklyn Greenway Half, a half marathon and 5K exclusively on the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. This run highlights BGI’s progress in achieving a fully completed greenway along the Brooklyn waterfront, as well as showcasing city and state parks.
Volunteer On The Greenway
BGI works in partnership with non-profit community service providers, corporate volunteer programs, and neighborhood residents, all of whom want to help keep the greenway clean and maintained. Contact us to plan a day for your group!

Annual Benefit Parties
Each year, BGI holds two benefit events to raise funds to support the organization’s work.
Summer: New Views: Brooklyn Waterfront Tastes is BGI’s annual summer fundraiser held in June at a newly-opened or newly-accessible section of the waterfront. The event features tastings from Brooklyn’s best restaurants and distilleries.
Fall: Greenway+Industry is BGI’s annual Fall benefit and is Brooklyn’s premiere networking event.
