Cycle into Manhattan - East Coast Greenway

Plans are almost complete for a Bike Path that extends from Westchester Avenue into Manhattan. Imagine biking into Manhattan and not having to fight all those stinky cars sharing the road on one of the bridges! The goal of the entire East Coast Greenway is to create a bike path that goes from Canada all the way to Key West Florida, for bicycles.

From an article in the Journal News:

"Greenway organizers hope to create the trail along the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut and the Hutchinson River Parkway in Westchester, then along Westchester Avenue to downtown White Plains. From there, it would join the Bronx River trail. The trail along the river is mostly complete with about 3 3/4 miles in early planning stages in Mount Vernon, Yonkers and the Scarsdale-Hartsdale area, said Mary Kaye Koch, spokeswoman for the Westchester County Parks Department."
