10/8/2020 Kent Avenue is close to having a new bike path. It’s a about time! It’s been a mess along this stretch of the Navy Yard for years now. Bigger picture, this is all part of the larger @bkgreenway (Brooklyn Greenway), an initiative to create a continuous 26-mile route along the waterfront from Howard Beach to Greenpoint. According to the project’s website, 18 of the 26 miles have been completed. It’s been 16 years since the visionary Milton Puryear got the ball rolling on this; the whole project, pre-COVID, was scheduled to wrap by the end of next year.
