The Harlem River Drive is an extension of the FDR Drive into the northern portion of Manhattan. The FDR Drive becomes the Harlem River Drive at the RFK Bridge (I-278). It runs north along the Harlem River. There is an exit for the George Washington Bridge (I-95/US 1/US 9) near the northern terminus. The Harlem River Drive ends a little over a mile north of the bridge at Dyckman Street and 10 Avenue.

The Harlem River Drive was originally built as the Harlem River Speedway, a racetrack for horses. It was later converted into a highway for automobiles.
