For the creation of a master plan for the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. The Greenway is a planned 14-mile long pedestrian and bicycle facility that will stretch throughout Brooklyn, from Greenpoint to Sunset Park. It will include bike lanes, pedestrian paths and landscaping.
Since 1998, the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative has worked to coordinate and support planning for the Greenway and to ensure that the project is completed by the New York City Department of Transportation. Users of the Greenway will enjoy more waterfront access, better quality of life, healthier lifestyles, more diverse transportation options, and increased economic development.
