Encircling New York Harbor-by way of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and the cities of Bayonne, Jersey City, and Hoboken, NJ, the Harbor Ring is a project for people who like to walk, bike, run, or skate in the NY/NJ metropolitan area.
The 50-mile Harbor Ring integrates more than 28 miles of existing shared use paths and bikeways, including significant portions of the Brooklyn Greenway, a section of the East Coast Greenway, Ft. Wadsworth, the Bayonne Bridge pathway, the Hudson River Walkway, the Hudson River Greenway, and the East River Esplanade. The route also includes more than 20 miles of bicycle-friendly-streets. The missing link is a Verrazano Bridge path. However, the balance of the route is ready for people to use and enjoy. Learn more here.
When complete, the Ring will generate tourism, offer unprecedented recreational opportunities, and continue to establish the region as one of the nation’s most bike-friendly. Our team needs YOUR help to produce a fold-out print map illustrating the Harbor Ring.
The Harbor Ring Initiative is a partnership of individuals and organizations that are advocating for bridging the missing links and creating a cohesive, safe route around New York Harbor. Regional Plan Association, DLA Piper, and The Street Plans Collaborative are providing technical assistance and support for this project.
