NYC is home to over 300 miles of greenways consisting of a patchwork of bikeways, pedestrian paths, and trails – some still in the planning stages, others in varied states of repair or disrepair, with each segment operated and maintained by separate organizations.  In 2024, NYC initiated a masterplan process to create a unified city-wide greenway network prioritizing neighborhoods that historically have been underserved by connected open space.

This program convenes a group of speakers who will discuss navigating the complexities of fostering, designing, building and maintaining greenways throughout the city.  Planning and design for the East River Esplanade in East Harlem and the Harlem River Greenway in the Bronx provide examples of current approaches to upgrading and expanding NYC’s greenway network.  Join the discussion as we explore the opportunities for a unified network that spans all five boroughs, driven by a shared vision of design quality, sustainability, inclusivity, accessibility, and equity for every New Yorker.
