New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The East River Bikeway and Esplanade
The Bikeway and Esplanade will be an exciting link in the future East Coast Greenway/Bikeway system. This multi-state program will create a waterfront bike route from Boston to Washington D.C.
This first stage, “Between the Bridges”, was designed by Carr, Lynch & Sandell and built in 1997 by the New York City Economic Development Corporation.
From here, the esplanade south brings you under the famous Brooklyn Bridge to Peck Slip. Beyond that, lies the South Street Seaport, the Wall Street Piers, the Staten Island ferry and Battery Park. To the north is Market Street, the Manhattan Bridge, Pike Slip and Rutgers Street. A connection past the existing Piers 35, 36 and 42 leads to East River Park.
