Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway

The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is a planned 14-mile pedestrian and bicycle route connecting communities along Brooklyn’s waterfront. Separate paths for bicycles and pedestrians will allow cyclists and walkers to commute, exercise, explore, and relax from Newtown Creek in north Brooklyn to the beginning of the Shore Parkway Greenway in Bay Ridge, creating a full 27-mile greenway along Brooklyn’s waterfront. The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is a trunk segment in New York City’s expanding network of greenways, which includes the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, the Queens East River Greenway, the Shore Parkway Greenway, and the Jamaica Bay Greenway. Over the past decade, New York City has truly opened public access to the waterfront with over 60 miles of public space planned or under construction. The completion of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is a crucial part of this vision. Several segments of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway are already in place and include some of the most popular bicycle and pedestrian routes in the City. Altogether, this unique set of pathways, green spaces, and public programs is transforming Brooklyn’s waterfront.

DUMBO/Vinegar Hill Street & Plaza Reconstruction

NYC DOT is working with DDC, the DUMBO Improvement District, and the communities of DUMBO and Vinegar Hill to develop a design for a $20 million capital project to reconstruct cobble roadways and subsurface utilities on multiple blocks of DUMBO and Vinegar Hill and build out Pearl Plaza, a successful public space that NYC DOT and DUMBO Improvement District implemented in 2007 using temporary materials. The streets in the project area consist of granite cobbles, generally in poor condition, with some sections of asphalt. These conditions impede bicycles, are difficult for pedestrians and do not meet Americans with Disability Act (ADA) guidelines. At the same time, community members feel strongly about preserving the character of the neighborhood to the greatest extent possible. NYC DOT is committed to a design that restores all streets with granite cobble in a way that makes these streets available for all users, including cyclists. For the Pearl Plaza, the goal is to create a design responsive to community desires, which incorporates seating and landscape elements in a manner that is consistent with the context, and that provides maximum flexibility for programming. The plaza design will connect Pearl Plaza to an adjacent public space under the Manhattan Bridge Arch. This design project includes extensive community outreach, with three public workshops held as of March, 2013. Following a vigorous discussion about the cobble roadway design at a workshop in January, 2013, the designers incorporated neighborhood feedback and presented revised concepts at a workshop on March 20th. The project team then built granite cobble mock-ups which were viewed by approximately 50-60 members of the public. Based on public input, a presentation was made to the Community Board 2 executive board, which endorsed the project on July 22, 2013. The project design will be submitted and presented to the Landmarks Preservation Commission in September 2013

Northern Boulevard and Broadway, 41st Avenue to 60th Street

Following the installation of temporary bike lanes in 2020 as a COVID response addressing the need for socially-distant transportation options, NYC DOT proposed to install permanent protected bike lanes on Northern Boulevard and Broadway. Bike lanes on Northern Boulevard are separated from moving lanes by barriers and delineators, and Broadway was designed as a parking protected bike lane to provide a connection from Central Queens to the Queensboro Bridge and job centers in Western Queens. Pedestrian islands improve safety by shortening crossing distances across Broadway.
