Current Progress

The Greenway's route through New York passes through one of the largest cities in the world — and is an experience not to be missed. Visitors and locals often agree that traveling through New York on safe, green, recreational paths may be the best way to see Manhattan.

The northern end of the route begins in Westchester County and connects via the Shore Road Greenway and continues onto the Pelham Parkway Greenway. From the Pelham Parkway Greenway, the Greenway travels north along the Bronx River Greenway and connects to the Mosholu Greenway through the Bronx River Forest. From the Mosholu, the route goes to Van Cortlandt Park, exiting on Broadway. The route then uses on-road connections and the Broadway Bridge to link to the Hudson River Greenway near Dyckman Street. Thirteen miles of uninterrupted trail travel the Hudson River Greenway, linking to ferry service at World Financial Center or Pier 11 to New Jersey.
