Adams Administration Plans Expansion of Harlem River Greenway into the Bronx
The Adams administration will begin public engagement in April on a plan for an expansion of the Harlem River Greenway to the Bronx. The route will span seven miles, connecting Randall’s Island at the southern tip of the Bronx to Van Cortlandt Park in the north, with continuous cycling and walking,
The expanded Harlem River Greenway will restore Bronxites’ access to the waterfront with a network of off-street, multi-use, shared paths along the waterfront, as well as on-street bicycle facilities. The administration will identify high-priority, quick-build street redesigns to support larger projects, and the implementation plan developed through community engagement will include both short-term and long-term projects.
“The Harlem River Greenway is a tremendous priority project that will bring new open space, waterfront access, and a renewed seawall to the communities across New York City, from East Harlem to Inwood to the Bronx,” said U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat.
