Can any one tell me how to get to the path for bikes and runners along the FDR? I am in the east 50s - is there an entrance in that general area?

FDR Drive

There is a pedestrian overpass from the sidewalk on north side of E 63rd St, just East of York Ave (just a few blocks north of the 59th St. Bridge).

There is a discontinuity in the bike / jogging path near the UN building & they divert Southbound bike traffic out to York Ave -> Sutton Place -> E 55th St (I believe; there is a bike route sign & a bike lane) -> 2nd Ave.

There is a pedestrian tunnel under the FDR drive to reenter the bike / ped path at E 37th St, just East of 1st Ave.

Bike map ....

"Check out the NYC Bike Map. The green stubs tell you the entrances e.g. at 37th, 62nd, 71st, 78th, ...."

The bike map might not be so accurate with the construction going on in the 60's on the FDR. Be flexible.

Path Access

The path currently runs continuously from 63rd to 120th. Access is at 63rd. There's a flight of stairs (with wheel tracks) at about 79th.
