Battery to Battery
The Hudson River Valley Greenway will stretch from Battery Park City in NYC to Battery Park in Troy, NY.
In the Bronx, the Greenway will connect pathways in Yonkers with pathways in Inwood Hill Park.
The first planning for the Hudson River Valley Greenway in the Bronx was carried out in 1997-1998 by a committee of dedicated volunteers, with a grant of $50,000 from the New York State Greenway office.
The grant supported a landscape architect and community meetings. The Preservancy contributed much of the required 50% match for the grant in the form of staff time. Preservancy staff wrote the committee report and supported community outreach. Scroll to the bottom of this page to download the Committee’s report.
Most recently, the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) completed a planning study and released recommendations in 2014 for short-term and long-term routes for the Greenway through the Bronx and Westchester. The Riverdale Nature Preservancy and other Bronx, Westchester and regional organizations were members of NYMTC’s Technical Advisory Committee. Representatives of affected agencies formed NYMTC’s Steering Committee. Download NYMTC’s 3-part report below.
