About Us

About Us
Friends of the East River Greenway is a coalition of non-profit organizations that support completing the East River Greenway between 38th and 60th streets using funds generated by the U.N.’s modernization.

Our voices are critical in making this happen.  The East Side has the lowest ratio of open space to residents and workers in the City. Building the Greenway will finally give our community the waterfront access it deserves – with a promenade for biking, walking and being outdoors.

Background

In October 2011, State and City elected officials reached an agreement allowing for construction of a new United Nations (UN) office building on condition that $70 million be provided to support the City’s work toward completing the East River Greenway and other park improvements. The public land use review process required for construction of the building is beginning this fall, and our voices can help make it a reality.

Join Our Coalition

For the complete East River Greenway to become a reality, the new UN office building must be approved and built. They need to hear from us that it’s time to finally complete the East River Greenway, with all the quality of life benefits it will provide.

We need your organization to be part of our diverse and growing coalition.  What does this mean?  Being a coalition member can be as simple as just appearing on our website, to activating your membership to get involved in this important campaign.

Please join our effort by emailing us at EastRiverGreenwayNYC@gmail.com or calling 212-799-8803, ext 21.
