We booked a bike for 24 hours. We've crossed the Brooklyn brigde, had a piknick and took the ferry for 1 dollar each to Goverments island with the best view on the (new) Manhattan skyline. Than we took the free ferry to Manhattan. It was a great trip. Tip: rent the bike for 24 hours, you can't do this in... More

We rented 3 bikes for 3 hours with the NY pass. They demanded a deposition for 100 USD per bike. They were very eager to get my creditcard to make a withdrawel (of 300 USD in total). They claimed that the Money would be payed back immediately after returning the bike. I waited 12 days to get my Money back... More

The deposit you refer to is not actually a charge but a credit card authorization. It is released by the cardholder’s bank when the equipment is returned. I hope this clears up your misunderstanding of our deposit policy and what an authorization transaction is. As you can see from our reviews, the majority of our customers really enjoy this experience.... More

We hired bikes from South Street using the New York Pass on a glorious Sunday. Some reviews suggest poor customer service but absolutely not so for us. We got bikes sorted immediately for a family of four and I even got a free upgrade to a bigger bike (from the regular cruiser) because of my height. The bikes were in... More

I am a daily commuter but sometimes like to show the great biking opportunities in NYC to my wife. And show her how bicycle-safe NYC has become :) To do this, I need a tandem. I'd buy one, but our apartment is, well, a NYC apartment, and thus small. Most recently it was for an all day ride up the... More

We rented bikes at the Governors Island Location. We were miss informed about the rate and charged double. There were serval people in our party. We all did not misunderstand. When we disputed the manager Sean said he was going to put it through anyway. We had to make the ferry back, and unfortunately we were unable to dispute it... More

I would give zero stars if I could. We were completely misinformed at the location on Governors Island, told we could keep the surrey as long as we'd like for the same price. "Don't worry about it. You're not limited to the hour." When we went to pay at the end, they charged us for two hours. The girl at... More

I was a little sceptical about the ability of myself, my wife, and our two kids to safely ride around in New York City, but we thought we would give it a try, and we were so glad we did. We showed up just after they opened, at 9am, and rented bikes for the 4 of us, and we had... More

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.
