PART OF HUDSON RIVER GREENWAY TO CLOSE IN EVENING FOR CON ED WORK

greenway5

Bicyclists who commute via the Hudson River Greenway may have to take a detour for the rest of the week, at least in the evening. Con Edison is doing work on the Greenway between 58th and 59th street from Wednesday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

      How safe is the “Greenway” after dark*? I walked along it from the low 30’s to somewhere in the 80’s one mild evening back in April. Already dusk when I began, it was quite dark for most of my journey– and quite lonely. The scariest may have been walking through the underpass in order to exit the park. I was startled when a bicyclist came through behind me (but then very much relieved and comforted as soon as I realized that he, by all appearances, was entirely non-threatening).

      I actually recall a comment here on WSR, from some time back, in which someone said that even in broad daylight, there are stretches along the Greenway that can be rather desolate.

      Perhaps Kermit the frog was right after all: It’s not always that easy being green.

      (*Yes, I realize that this closure begins at 7:00 and the sun doesn’t set until 8:30 this time of year).

        It’s only ever seemed desolate to me down in Battery Park City. It’s usually packed from the West Village up to 125th street with bikes and pedestrians.
