The new and improved entry path to the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade from Downtown Brooklyn is finally rideable. If the rest of the bridge path ever gets a widening and makeover to match this one, it will become one of the great walking and biking connections in New York.
The city first showed a concept for the wider entry path at Tillary Street and Adams Street in 2009 (and the idea for a median bikeway on Adams goes back to 1998). Eight years later, work on this capital project is about to wrap up.
A bit more construction remains to be done at the intersection of Tillary and Adams, but you can tell the new path will be a vast improvement over the old cattle chute.
