Trans-Manhattan Bikeways to Be Joined in Battery Park

New, 5 comments

There's no word on whether the Battery Garden Bikeway will be finalized with Janette Sadik-Khan driving a golden spoke into the ground where the Hudson River Bikeway will meet the East River Esplanade, but a plan is underway to join the two recreational corridors at the southern tip of Manhattan. The Battery Garden Bikeway will "include new park entrances, unique perennial gardens designed by Piet Oudolf, and separate areas for bikers and pedestrians." The construction will also involve the movement of ten monuments dedicated to inventors, explorers, and defenders to new positions within Battery Park.
