It is the Hell Gate Pathway (according to signs along the path) or Randall’s Island Connector (according to media references) underneath Amtrak’s monumental Hell Gate Bridge viaduct.

It has that brand-new quality with perfectly-striped and marked new pavement and great amenities like these:
This is being built by the New York City Economic Development Corporation, which is slated to have the path connected to the Bronx by 2015. The path will bridge the Bronx Kill waterway over the little red bridge nestled within the bigger Amtrak bridge seen here in this kayak’s-eye photo.
