Destination: Greenways!

Destination: Greenways! is a concept study focused on creating an improved greenway experience within New York City parks so that greenways are not simply connections between places, but enjoyable destinations in themselves.

A robust community engagement process brought forth two concept plans: one along the waterfront in southwest Brooklyn and the other connecting parks in central and eastern Queens. A joint effort between NYC DOT and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, the study was completed in Fall 2021 and presented in community report-back sessions in February 2022.
