The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is growing. Supporters and business leaders from Brooklyn’s major economic hubs will raise funds to complete more of the pathway and honor those who have helped at its annual fundraising gala on Wednesday, November 9.

Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is working with the NYC Department of Transportation to create a pathway for runners, cyclists and pedestrians stretching from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge that links open spaces and parks together. Thus far, six miles of the Greenway have been completed, leaving eight to go.

Started in 2004, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is the nonprofit organization committed to the establishment, development and long term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. Broken into 23 distinct segments, the Greenway will be completed as funds are raised, the NYC DOT announced in 2012.

There will be a champagne reception, awards program, dinner and live music by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra at Wednesday’s gala. It will take place at The William Vale in Williamsburg from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.
