There are three principal parts of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway (From Wikipedia):
- Hudson River Greenway is the longest, running along the West Side, from Dyckman Street in the north to Battery Park in the south, mostly through Hudson River Park and Riverside Park, with a small gap in West Harlem where users must use streets. This is the most heavily used bikeway in the United States. Most is near Hudson River water level, except the portion north of George Washington Bridge where it climbs to approximately 160 feet (50 meters) and includes Inspiration Point.
- East River Greenway runs along the East Side from The Battery and past South Street Seaport to East Harlem with a 2.5 mile (4 km) gap from 34th to 83rd streets in Midtown where cyclists use bike lanes in busy streets to get around United Nations Headquarters. Intermediate access points at 63rd Street and elsewhere are suitable to walking but not bicycling. Some places are narrow due to sinkholes being blocked off by protective fencing, requiring slower speeds. Approximately a mile near the southwest end is in the shadow of the elevated FDR Drive.
- Harlem River Greenway is the shortest, and is completely uninterrupted, running northward from 155th Street at the north end of Central Harlem to Dyckman Street in northern Manhattan. A bike lane in Dyckman Street connects across Inwood to Inwood Hill Park and the Hudson River Greenway.
