Great experience hiring the bikes today. My wife and I rode over the Brooklyn bridge and into Brooklyn back along the waterfront then back over the Manhattan bridge. Amazing views from Brooklyn of the Manhattan skyline, bridges and the waterfront. A great way to see New York away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist spots and it... More

We took the tour that went over the Brooklyn Bridge and back I've the Manhattan Bridge. Our guide was informative and fun! Even those in moderate athletic shape can make the trip. A bike on our trip did break down- we had about a 20 min wait while they brought another from the shop. I would suggest incorporating a drink/snack... More

The chains of our bikes fell out ten times, and the trip would have been ruined after a pedal simply broke off, if we hadn't been near the shop when it happened. At least we weren't charged the insurance fee and the employees were very friendly and forthcoming. Definitely not worth the 40$. If you have a New York Pass,... More

Great bikes to hire - chose standard (3 gears) or deluxe versions (more gears) and cycle all around Manhattan in (relative) safety of the cycle paths! You see way more than you would on foot, especially when you really just want to visit places briefly. Friendly and helpful team - thanks a lot!

Highly recommend - free with the NY pass! Totally worth it, to race pass on the bridge - especially with so many walkers. Great experience

Fast, friendly and professional. We rented two bikes to go across the Brooklyn Bridge. Once we got to the bridge, the red across was great but getting to and from the bridge became challenging to some out of towners. Directions were limited, and riding in traffic can be intimidating. My bike was ok, but the low gears slipped when climbing.... More

we had actually used this company on a trip in San Fran to rent to ride over Golden Gate and had god experience. Saw they had location in NYC and wanted something closer to the water and/o Brooklyn Bridge (not Central Park: personally don't think that is too biker friendly). They had both NYC bike maps and their own which... More

We had two bikes 24 hours and took the suggested route over Brooklyn Bridge. After visiting Brooklyn Heights and enjoying the beautiful view over to Manhattan we cycled through Brooklyn and back via Manhattan Bridge. The next day we explored the city and central park. The bikes are really great for a ride throughout NYC. Jackie from Blazing Saddles was... More

We rented a tandem at blazing saddles (On the Westside, near the Circle Lines). The staff was super friendly and they really took care of us. We could even leave our luggage there, as we already had checked out from the hotel. The only thing that one could critize was, that the guy who gave us the bike could not... 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.
