The Empire State Trail is a bold, unprecedented vision for a connection from Buffalo to Canada and New York City, which will help transform New York into one of the country’s most attractive bike tourism destinations. An extension of the Empire Trail from New York City to Long Island is essential for the path to both serve as a true statewide resource, and respond to local demand throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Capitalizing on growing enthusiasm for biking and walking amenities on Long Island, The Trust For Public Land and NYBC have partnered to develop a plan for an East/West Trail from New York City to the North and South fork. Panelists will discuss the tremendous the proposed trail alignment, focusing on use of utility corridors to maximize off-street segments and the tremendous level of stakeholder engagement and institutional knowledge contributing to this effort.
