West Village

This unique tour begins while it is still daylight, with a pedal through the historic and charming West Village. As we ride along charming streets and by quaint houses, we’ll pass by a famous restaurant that was once a classic “speakeasy.” Today, it still has no identifying sign outside! Television sitcom lovers will certainly recognize a very familiar site - the actual building featured in the program Friends! Before we leave this neighborhood, we’ll stop at the birthplace of the modern "gay rights" movement, learn the fascinating story behind its inception, and have a photo op at the powerful sculpture by the renowned George Segal.

Hudson River Greenway

We’ll then head to the new Hudson River Greenway, a splendid bike path with truly magnificent views of the New York Harbor. Passing nearby Ground Zero, we will visit yet another monument to human despair. We then ride through the nearly-deserted Wall Street area. Here, the spectacular Stock Exchange building is especially impressive at twilight.

NYC Green Park

Lastly, we’ll roll across the Brooklyn Bridge and we’ll visit the newest park in NYC, the stunning Brooklyn Bridge Park. There, you’ll learn about how new forms of green-architecture can help transform derelict waterfront shipping spaces into new promenades for families and visitors.
