Traveled with two friends and rented bikes to ride over the Brooklyn bridge, eat lunch and return. We were thinking it would be about $10-12 each. It was crowded riding to the bridge and riding across it. Friends kept stopping taking pics and videos so it ended up being 3 hours after eating lunch and returning. Very expensive for a... More

To see a different part of manhattan, take the blazing saddles bike hire from pier 78. WE went all the way down the bike way- very safe- then cycled across the Brooklyn bridge and toured Brooklyn heights, before heading back across the manahattan bridge and travelling up the east side. A great view and the staff there couldn't be more... More

We bought the New York Pass and the hiring of the bikes was included in the package. The service was excellent, very quick, locks were provided and helmets if you wanted them, we were also given a suggested route to cycle. Amazing cycle over the Brooklyn Bridge and would really recommend it.

Blazing saddles has great equipment and reasonable prices. The pier location is great for getting on the Hudson River Greenway. Our Gary Fisher bikes were well-equipped with storage, a bell, helmet and we were provided a map. We had a wonderful 40 mile ride spanning the Brooklyn Bridge to Grants Tomb. In addition to the greenway, we rode in designated... 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.
