The Coolest Greenway in New York

Hell Gate Pathway

Hell Gate Pathway on Randall's Island

Check it out! This is definitely the coolest greenway in all of New York City. 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. ┬áThis greenway will eventually connect the Port Morris section of the Bronx with Randall’s Island. For now, only the Randall’s Island segment has been built. 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.
