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, beginning with three online public workshops this April.

Each workshop will collect community feedback within the geographic area of three potential greenway segments:

Tuesday, April 18th, 6-8PM: Van Cortlandt Park to University Heights Bridge
Register for the April 18 Workshop.

Wednesday, April 19th, 6-8PM: University Heights Bridge to Macombs Dam Bridge
Register for the April 19 Workshop.

Wednesday, April 26th, 6-8PM: Macombs Dam Bridge to Randall’s Island Connector
Register for the April 26 Workshop.
