I really want to recommend this place to everyone that is looking for bike rentals! Service was excellent, the staff is very friendly and very knowledgable about their equipment and the places to go visit.

My best friend and I rented some bikes from Central Park Sightseeing and we couldn't be happier. We've always wanted to do this but didn't know exactly where to go or how it works, and we definitely went to the right place. The staff is extremly friendly and helpful, very clear when explainig their policies, areas where you can ride... More

A friend and I rented bikes for four hours to ride central park with our ten year olds. It was a great way to see central park in a short period of time and easy to get from the shop to the park. The pro is hilly which we didn't expect but beautiful! If you plan to ride with kids... More

We hired bikes on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.As a result it was very busy. Their check in system is organised so as a result the queue moved reasonably well and the service acceptable. The bikes however weren't quite the level we expected. My husband's bike was a newer one. It's faults:inadequate seat height adjustment or a tall man, tired brakes... More

If I could give less then one star, I would! My experience with this place was terrible. First their costumer service was bad. Next they failed to follow their own policy of checking their bikes between every costumer. Due to that I ended up with a bike that had a worn out inner tube. A half hour into my ride... More

This place has its system DOWN. They are moving so many people and they did it so quickly and efficiently. We loved biking through the park. Four hours was plenty - we didn't feel rushed at all. Special shout out to AJ who was so helpful and so friendly. It was only his third day on the job and he... More

You can only bike on the road that circles around the edge of Central Park, we didn't even have the bikes for long before we returned them so we could explore on foot. The short time we did have the bikes for were mostly spent pushing them around on footpaths. We were also only given 1 lock when there were... More

We had a great trip through centralpark. We came spontaneously to the store and the trip began half an hour later. The bikes were good. Our guide Stan was awesome. At the beginning he asked for wishes, he had many storys to tell and was super funny. You could recognize he is doing his job with heart and soul. The... More

Awful experience with Central Park Sightseeing! I called them to book a 30-minute ($50) carriage ride in Central Park. They mistakenly booked me for the 50-minute ($130) carriage ride and they refused to refund my money. Staff was very rude and unreasonable. They put a big damper on my mother's 88th birthday celebration. I recommend Central Park Horses. Very courteous,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
