We took the 1 hour pedicab tour of Central Park. It took us to about the middle of the park where we stopped for pictures. We stopped at three different locations for pictures. He showed us several movie locations and pop culture highlights. He used his phone and some glossy photographs he had with him to talk about different areas.... More

These people are greedy. We should have trusted our initial impression as when we arrived there were about 50 other customers standing in line waiting for their bikes. Clearly the owners of Central Park Soghseeing didn't have enough bikes to service all the online reservations they had accepted. After waiting in line for 40 minutes we asked what was going... More

One of the best bike rental shops I've been to! The customer service was great and they knew what they were doing. The line was long but it moved very fast. Best way to see Central Park! Definitely suggest going here

Great bikes, my only issue was that they didn't explain how to change gears when they gave us the bikes. I had never seen a gear change like that so it took a few minutes for us to figure it out. Loved them once we figured it out. Very fun ride. Sarah was our cashier - she was really friendly... More

The bike I got was not working properly - the seat was going down every couple of minutes, so I could not really bike. The staff, when I returned it, was ironic... they could not care less. Also, we got just one lock for two bikes, that made locking them safely problematic.

Annie and the boys were extremely friendly, efficient and made the bike hire process quick and simple. Three hours was enough to do 1.5 laps and stop off for lunch, then walk our bike around some paths unable to ride on, but you can watch street performers and look at the fountains etc.

It's so easy to book a bike online to get a great discount! Their services are the Best -- Fast, Friendly and Humorous. The bike is in a very good condition with free basket, helmet, locker and tour maps. The most important thing is their bikes are light and have speed shifter, which is very important to climb the short... 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.
