See it: Cherry Walk is back open after repairs—no more bumpy tree roots!



The busy Cherry Walk section of the Hudson River Greenway is finally back open after being closed for repairs—and requiring complicated detours—since last September.


Work along the riverside path between 100th and 125th Streets included fixes to the shoreline damaged by Superstorm Sandy as well as the removal of large tree roots that had damaged the greenway.

The 25-block path—popular with cyclists and pedestrians alike—was notoriously bumpy, and cyclists in particular can expect a much smoother and safer ride.


All the unsafe tree roots along Cherry Walk have been removed.

The Parks Department announced the reopening on Friday, giving many a chance to try out the path over the long holiday weekend.
