***Unfortunately due to the cold weather, tours will be on pause until the spring!*** The tour is curated from a local's perspective, and we will be biking, walking, and ferrying to get around. --We'll start with meeting at a local coffee shop and eat some delicious bagels to fuel up for our day of adventure. --From the coffee shop, we'll go to the northern portion of Central Park which is the portion least visited by tourists but features some of the park's best spots. --We'll walk through the most serene and scenic parts of the upper portion of Central Park and then bike over to the ferry on the Upper East Side. --From the Upper East Side we will ferry over to Queens and then bike along the waterfront there to see some fantastic views of Manhattan. --From Queens we will venture over to Brooklyn by bike where we will explore some charming Brooklyn neighborhoods and grab a slice of pizza at one of the best pizza spots in Brooklyn. The tour is designed to be more intimate, like you are in town visiting a friend than as if you were a part of a large tour group. We will utilize the public bike share and ferry systems as well as our own two feet and the tour is a good introduction of alternative ways of venturing around NYC without having to use the subway, ride share, buses or taxis.
I'm a bicycling, ferry riding, walking, longboarding, and rollerblading enthusiast who loves discovering all the best secret, or not so secret, places in New York City, including hidden side streets, architectural gems, beautiful public parks and spaces, where to go for delicious foods and drinks, and most importantly-- happy hour deals! In every city I've lived in-- Seattle, Barcelona, Nashville, I try to make the city my own by finding the best streets for biking or walking and make it a priority to discover all the city's best spots along the way. When friends come to visit, I love showing them all my favorite places in NYC away from the more touristy areas and want to share these specials places with more people to give them a different taste of the Big Apple.
