New York is well known for its amazing sunsets along the Hudson River, and its light show at night! This tour gets you far and away from the inner grid of the city to visit America’s most famous port of entry dating back to the late 1800’s. We will also go to the Brooklyn Bridge where New York can best be seen lit up in all its glory.
Traveling along Manhattan’s Hudson and East Rivers, you will witness the amazing depth and breadth that New York has to offer. The smell of salt air and the openness you feel from being away from the inner grid will give you a sense of peace that quiets the concrete jungle we call Manhattan.
Our goal is to immerse you in the sights and sounds of New York. We want you to become a part of the city as we travel the west side bike path to Battery Park City. Once entering its 1.2 mile esplanade, we will explore the amazing history of Ellis Island, Lady Liberty and more. When we get to the southern coast of Manhattan you will get a front row seat to the view millions of immigrants had seen for the very first time. As you stand there you can only think of what it must have been like to travel across a treacherous ocean to get to a place you only dreamed of.
We then bike over to Manhattan’s East Side waterfront for more amazing views, rich history and photo opportunities of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. We’ll visit South Street Seaport, The Financial District and make a pit stop at the first ever restaurant in all of New York City, Delmonico’s Steakhouse. We’ll also see Fraunces Tavern, where George Washington gave his farewell speech to his continental army after winning the American Revolution in 1783.
At dusk we’ll bike onto the Brooklyn Bridge where you will experience one of the world’s most famous views. You will see as far north as the Empire State Building and as far south as the Verrazano Bridge. Before heading back down the bridge we have one more surprise in store for you, then its a smooth ride down the Brooklyn Bridge before heading up to il laboratorio gelato for some tasty homemade gelato and sorbets. A great way to end any tour!
