YONKERS - A new study completed Friday found it’s feasible to create a continuous greenway trail from Manhattan to Yonkers for bikers and pedestrians. 

The project would connect existing pathways like the Westchester County Riverwalk and the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway along the river.

Officials say they hope the greenway would bring a boom to businesses in Yonkers.

The project would be done in three phases that could take up to 10 years to complete.

The first phase would connect the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway to the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail using a number of on-street routes and eventually create an off-street path along the river.

Sen. Chuck Schumer says he'll also be fighting for federal funding to help make a continuous bike ride along the river a reality.
