Just a few possibilities for day trips in the city
Manhattan Isle- Manhattan, the center of it all! Experience the pleasantly surprising quiet (and safety) of Manhattan’s hidden streets, or immerse yourself in the excitement and energy of the Big Apple. Or, a mix of both! We know the ins-and-outs of the island in its entirety; all neighborhoods, and any tour duration and distance possible.
Greenery abounds in Upper Manhattan & the Bronx- Fascinating neighborhoods, spectacular views, and the very best of what remains of the city’s natural landscape. We’re taking you way uptown! (15-30 mile options)
Douglaston/farout Queens to Long Island!- Ethnic neighborhood nooks abound before reaching Flushing meadows & the Kissena Corridor. This beautiful Greenbelt will take us out to the Queens Farm Museum, beautiful Douglaston, and yes Long Island! (18-40 mile options)
From Industrial to Chic, the Brooklyn Coast- From Williamsburg to DUMBO to Red Hook, and all the hot spots in between. The short subway commutes and spectacular views brought people here; now see the lifestyle, culture, and living-history that make them stay. (12-25 mile options)
Coney Island and the forgotten neighborhoods of Brooklyn- Take a ride on the Wonderwheel or The Cyclone, eat a Nathans hotdog and come join us in the far reaches of Brooklyn. We’ll encounter the fisherman of sheepshead bay, and the mansions of Manhattan Beach & Midwood. Other interesting possibilities include: the growing Chinatowns in Sunset Park & Gravesend, Little Odessa (aka Brighton Beach), the Italians in Bensonhurst and Dyker Heights, Orthodox Jewish communities of Borough Park & Midwood (and the Middle-Eastern neighborhoods in-between), and the true Brooklyn feel of Bay Ridge. (15-40 mile options)
New York Beaches abound, Rockaway & Roll- Jamaica Bay, a former airport, and a former military base (both turned park!) all make for gorgeous waterfront biking. Experiencing the picturesque ruins of Ft Tilden (Manhattan's distant skyline to the West, the waves of the Atlantic to the East) will allow to embrace this massive city in its entiretly (20-40 mile options)
