Join Brooklyn Greenway Initiative for a special Climate Week NYC ride on the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway! We’ll start at the corner of Old Fulton Street and Water Street in DUMBO, travel through Brooklyn Bridge Park and Red Hook, and end at Valentino Park & Pier. Along the way, we’ll explore the Greenway’s implementation and its potential for reducing New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions and helping the City adapt and build resiliency to increasingly volatile storms and flooding. There will be plenty of opportunities to take in the views, learn more about the Greenway’s implementation, and discuss its future as a climate solution for Brooklyn and the greater NYC waterfront!
Led by: • Terri Carta, Executive Director, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative • Amy Turner, Senior Fellow, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School
Please meet promptly at 6:00pm at the corner of Old Fulton Street and Water Street near the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park. If you don’t have your own bike to ride, consider using CitiBike; there are stations at multiple locations along the route. If you don't have a membership we have a limited number of passes available that we can provide on a first come first serve basis.
Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is dedicated to the development, establishment, and long-term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, a 26-mile protected landscaped route that, when complete, will connect Brooklyn’s storied and iconic waterfront, parks and open space, commercial and cultural corridors, and new tech and innovation hubs with the 2.65 million Brooklyn residents, over 1.1 million employees in Brooklyn, and 15 million visitors from across the City and around the world who cycle, run, stroll, and otherwise enjoy the Greenway.
This event is part of the Sustainable Travel and Leisure program of Climate Week NYC.
