This guidebook highlights the attractions along the greenway and provides information about nearby public transportation, restrooms, places to eat, and bike shops.

Jamaica Bay Greenway Guide
This pocket-sized map highlights the planned and completed greenway, access routes to reach it, points of interest, kayak and human powered boat launches, and representative cycling distances. The Regional Plan Association, in coordination with NYC Parks, the National Parks Service, NYCDOT, and members of the Rockaway Community, worked together to create the guide, which aims both to introduce New Yorkers from all five boroughs to the wonderful recreation opportunities Jamaica Bay has to offer, and to encourage the Bay's closest neighbors to use the Greenway.
