The New York City entrance to the George Washington Bridge south bike path and pedestrian walkway is on 178th Street, a few blocks west of Fort Washington Ave. To reach it from the Greenway, take the 181st Street exit of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway (north of the bridge) and then go right on Riverside Dr. Take a left on 181st St. and then right on Fort Washington Ave. At 178th St., make a right.

The GWB south bike path and pedestrian walkway is closed from 12AM (midnight) until 6AM.

As the picture shows, the ramp at the NY side is steep; an unassisted person with a handicap is very likely to find it difficult to ascend or descend safely.

The 176th steps did not seem to go to the Greenway. I turned back and found the bike route at 181st Street. The George Washington Bridge bike path / walkway that I access from NJ is on the south side of the bridge.
