Waterfront Access/Activity Sites (Biking, Kayaking, Rowing, Sailing)

Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway

  • http://www.brooklyngreenway.org
  • When its founders started in 1998, a 14-mile greenway along Brooklyn’s industrial waterfront was inconceivable to New York City officials. Now the greenway is recognized as an essential public health and sustainable transportation resource that will shape the future development of Brooklyn’s waterfront.After ten years of building support, planning, and securing funding, the greenway is poised to become a unified New York City capital project.

8 Bridges/Hudson River Swim

  • From the peaceful Catskills to the dramatic Narrows, intrepid swimmers will cover more than half of the Hudson River’s great stream, from the Rip Van Winkle Bridge in Hudson down to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge — the entrance to the New York Harbor.   For one week, each day’s marathon swim will begin just north of one bridge and end on the south side of the next, covering distances ranging from 13.2 miles to 19.8 miles.
