Sometimes people forget that Manhattan is an island and that the best way to see it is from both on-shore and off-shore. Take a guided tour via a bike and then a boat to really experience New York City. You'll start at Bike and Roll's Battery Park location and ride along the traffic-free bike path along the Hudson. You'll cross to the other side of Manhattan on city streets and pass City Hall before getting on and going over the Brooklyn Bridge. Some of the city's most beautiful neighborhoods are in Brooklyn and some of the best views of Manhattan are from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. You'll see it all. At the bottom of Old Fulton Street, you'll board a NY Water Taxi where your tour continues with amazing close-up views (great for photos) of the South Street Seaport, Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island with drop-of in midtown. Back on your bike, the final stretch of the ride takes you south along the Hudson River past Gehry's IAC building, the High Line, the Meatpacking District, yachts, marinas, and so much more, until you return to your starting point at Battery Park.
Address: 140 W. 30th St. Midtown West, NY 10001
