We rented bikes that were easy to ride and felt safe. They gave us really good directions so we wouldn't get lost. Helmets and bike locks are included as well as the travel bag on the handle bars. The views from the bridge were amazing. We would rent from this place again.

With a group of 30 people we rented our bikes at Blazing Saddles. Besides the bikes they organized 3 guides to lead us through NYC and towards the Brooklyn Bridge. Great and exciting attraction, biking the Brooklyn Bridge is a must see, and it gives you great views of Manhattan. After the bridge the guides took us through Brooklyn and... More

We did not have to wait and were received with a smile by Marcus. We were six including three children and all bikes were in great shape, and also important that they were very light and not old at all. Rocio also was very kind helping us to get ready. On return it was also very fast. Highly recommended!!

Rented from Marcus at South Street Station. He and all staff have been very helpful. Bikes are excellent quality. I have used Blazing Saddles across the Golden Gate in San Francisco as well as many bike paths and Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.

We hired bikes and asked for a guided tour over the Brooklyn bridge...we were given a map that was circled with the points we should look out for!! Not the guided tour we were expecting and therefore not an enjoyable experience. People should be sure they make their expectations very clear...I thought we were VERY clear but it seems not!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Because our guided tours depart on time, we can't always catch up any late arrivals to the tour group. It looks like our colleagues tried to give you directions for a self guided ride so you could still enjoy the ride. I would like to invite you to... 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.
