About New York Bike and Boat Guided-Tour
Sometimes we 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. Starting from Battery park ride along the traffic-free bike path along the Hudson. Youll 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 citys most beautiful neighborhoods are in Brooklyn and some of the best views of Manhattan are from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Youll see it all. At the bottom of Old Fulton Street youll board a NY Water Taxi where your tour continues with picture-perfect close-up views of the South Street Seaport Brooklyn Bridge the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with drop-off in midtown. Back on your bike the final stretch of the ride takes you south along the Hudson River past Gehrys IAC building the High Line the Meatpacking District yachts marinas and so much more until you return to your starting point at Battery Park.
