We are working with the New York City Department of Transportation to ensure the bridge is safe for use; repairs are imminent and the bridge will re-open soon. If you are approaching the Amtrak bridge from the north, please use the 181st Street pedestrian bridge over the Henry Hudson Parkway at Riverside Drive to access local streets. You can re-enter the Greenway at either West 158th Street and the Henry Hudson Parkway or at West 153rd Street and Riverside Drive via the Herman “Denny” Farrell Pedestrian Bridge.
