E. 90th Street and F.D.R. Drive
Manhattan, NY 10128
Please be advised that various City agencies are doing construction work along the Upper East Side section of the East River Esplanade and on pathways in Carl Schurz Park. The work is expected to be completed in the coming months. Currently, the only point of access to the ferry landing is via a temporary path (which includes stairs) at E. 90th Street and East End Avenue.
We expect the pedestrian path along the East River Esplanade from E. 96th to the E. 90th Street ferry landing to reopen and be ADA compliant once construction is complete in the next few weeks.
Following completion of seawall construction in that section, EDC will upgrade the E. 87th Street path to ensure it is ADA compliant and anticipates it will open in early 2019.
