There’s more to the Big Apple than just Times Square and Central Park. Explore the rest of New York City on this exciting multi-borough guided tour. See Spanish Harlem. Explore the Bronx, home of the Yankees. Cruise around vibrant Queens. Feel like a hipster in Brooklyn. And, finally, cross back into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge. Learn about the history and culture of the boroughs. This service is a complement to the traditional city tour of Manhattan, and represents the authentic “melting pot” of the real New York.

Response from MovingImageNYC, Public Relations Manager at Museum of the Moving Image

Great place to visit for young and old. Fascinating interior in lobby for relaxing and snacking. The Henson Muppet exhibit was wonderful.
