Eighteen miles of the greenway along the Brooklyn waterfront are already complete, making it a great place to bike!
The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is a planned 26-mile protected and landscaped route for pedestrians and cyclists along the Brooklyn Waterfront.
Currently, 18 miles of the route are finished and available to use! These include the waterfronts of Williamsburg, parts of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Bay Ridge, Bath Beach and along the Belt Parkway in Eastern Brooklyn. The yet-to-be-built gaps include Greenpoint, DUMBO, Red Hook, Sunset Park, Gravesend and Sheepshead Bay. The Greenway is slated for completion by 2021.
We recommend starting your ride in Williamsburg, a fun and popular neighborhood:
Pick up a bike at Kent Ave & N 7th St (or another nearby station)
Ride South along Kent Ave, with views of the water and Manhattan to your right
Continue until Kent meets up with Flushing Ave
Turn right on Flushing Ave and continue until you hit Navy St
Turn right on Navy St and follow it as it curves to the left and turns into York St
You can drop your bike off at the Old Fulton St station if you'd like to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge or enjoy a pizza at the famous Grimaldi's. Or continue through Brooklyn Bridge Park for a longer ride.
