$100 million of New York City mayor Bill de Blasio’s executive budget will be used to help finish the final missing section of greenway in Manhattan between East 61st and East 53rd Streets, enabling cyclists to circumnavigate the whole of Manhattan without using busy roads.

The project is estimated to take around five years and will increase accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians to travel through the busy New York suburb.
