Historic Greenway Expansion to Develop Five New Greenway Corridors

Map of New York City highlighting new greenway corridors to be developed in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.

In an announcement at Prospect Park, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez, New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (NYC Parks) Commissioner Sue Donoghue, and New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) President and CEO Andrew Kimball joined advocates and elected officials to launch an historic, 40+ mile expansion of New York City’s greenway corridors in underserved, outer-borough communities. This expansion of the greenway network will begin with a collaborative, community-driven process to develop implementation plans for each corridor consisting of short- and long-term projects to fill critical gaps in the city’s greenway network; expand active transportation and green space; enhance cycling and pedestrian safety; and support community economic development.
