Harlem River Greenway (Bronx) Feedback Map
Members of the public can now share their vision for the future Harlem River Greenway (Bronx) here.
Harlem River Greenway (Bronx) Online Public Workshops
NYC DOT is initiating a planning process to develop a 7-mile Harlem River Greenway in The Bronx, creating a continuous walking and cycling connection between Van Cortland Park and Randall’s Island. The implementation plan will aim to better connect Bronxites to their waterfront and provide a critical north-south bike commuting corridor. Bronxites will help shape the plan through a community-based process, which began with three online public workshops in April 2023.
Each workshop collected community feedback within the geographic area of three potential greenway segments:
Tuesday, April 18th, 6-8PM: Van Cortlandt Park to University Heights Bridge

Bronx communities along the Harlem River are disconnected from the waterfront and have long voiced the desire for a continuous greenway and connection to upland neighborhoods as a priority.
The New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), in partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation, The New York City Economic Development Corporation, and the Department of Environmental Protection, has initiated a community-based process to develop a plan for closing the gaps in the Harlem River Waterfront Greenways in the Bronx. The Harlem River Greenway--when complete--will be a continuous 7-mile transportation corridor connecting Van Cortlandt Park to Randall’s Island.
About the Harlem River Greenway Implementation Plan
The Harlem River Greenway Implementation Plan will outline a comprehensive strategy to create a continuous and accessible path by identifying a series of short-term and long-term projects along the Harlem River.
NYC DOT will work with community members to identify and address high priority gaps through Street Improvement Projects, building support for larger capital projects and momentum for the entire plan.
The Harlem River Greenway implementation plan will be broken down into three greenway segments:
Van Cortlandt Park to University Heights Bridge
University Heights Bridge to Macombs Dam Bridge
Macombs Dam Bridge to Randall’s Island Connector
