City wants Bronxites to help shape new 7-mile Harlem River Greenway, Adams announces


The city is set to kick off a public engagement process next month for the Bronx Harlem River Greenway project, a new seven-mile bike and pedestrian path slated to be built along the eastern side of the Harlem River, Mayor Eric Adams announced Wednesday.

Exact details have yet to be hashed out for the project that will stretch from Van Cortlandt Park in the northwest corner of the Bronx down much of the Harlem River’s eastern bank to Randall’s Island to the borough’s south, according to the mayor. When completed, however, it’ll offer continuous north-south off-street “multi use paths” and on-street “bike facilities,” all running alongside the Major Deegan Expressway.
