Mayor Budgets $7 Million for Greenway Connector
In March, City Parks Department officials announced that Mayor Bloomberg budgeted $7 million to build the Hudson River Greenway connector between 83rd and 91st Streets. The Parks Department expects to put the project out for bidding in fiscal year 2006, so greenway users should expect to be biking and walking on the new section in mid-2007. The 14-foot wide path will extend partially over the rocky riverbank on piers. It will give path users an uninterrupted waterfront route through Riverside Park. Currently, greenway users must detour through Riverside Park between 83rd and 91st Streets.
