The de Blasio Administration today released a progress update for the City’s vision to close the 32.5-mile loop of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway. The Manhattan Waterfront Greenway brochure outlines more than $250 million of investments in key areas in Inwood, Harlem, East Harlem, and East Midtown, with a vision for the remaining gaps and upgrade areas. These projects will add approximately 15 acres of quality open space that integrates the Greenway into neighborhoods that have historically been disconnected from the waterfront. In addition, the de Blasio Administration has already invested over $400 million in repairing the existing Greenway.
