Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) is the non-profit organization committed to the development, establishment and long-term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. When complete, this 14-mile landscaped route for pedestrians, bicyclists and runners will connect parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. This is Greenpoint’s year of Greenway improvements, with construction expected in 2015 on the West Street and Manhattan Avenue segments, including implementation of stormwater infrastructure to reduce the frequency of the release of raw sewage into the East River.
Major event sponsors include Brooklyn Navy Yard Industrial Park, Infrastructure Engineering Incorporated, Brooklyn Expo Center, New York Water Taxi, and Greenpoint Landing.
