We hired two bikes with our NYC passes. The hire included the bikes until 5pm so we had them for the whole day. The guy in the shop was fantastic, he was very friendly, helpful and informative. He showed us some great routes so that we would see some great views once we cycled over Brooklyn Bridge. The bikes are... More

Ray, Smiley & George were the best. Very informative and fun to talk to. The trip across the Brooklyn Bridge was scary with the tourists. We used two NYC passes and rented the Tandem no extra charge. They gave us helmets and a lock.

An opportunity to view parts of the city at a different pace. We rode across Brooklyn Bridge (nearby to pickup point), explored a little of Brooklyn, then rode back over the Manhattan Bridge (no pedestrian traffic), explored Chinatown, in about 3 hours. Fun with stops along the way.

This was a great place to rent a bike. I'm a bike commuter in Toronto, so used to riding in traffic. The man tested out my skill level, showed me what I needed to know & off I went - no fuss. Easy return. The ride in between is one of my favourite New York experiences.

We enjoyed biking the NYC waterfront and Brooklyn Bridge for 3 hours, but our equipment failed us on both bikes which affected our experience. The rear brake disconnected on one bike making it impossible to ride and the key did not match the lock on the other so we couldn't stop along the way or eat. Blazing Saddles did bring... More

Excellent service by Marcus and his colleagues, good quality bikes and smooth process. The views from the bridge are amazing! Even if you just go across the bridge and back - it's worth it! And it's for free if you have a New York Pass.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
