New York City is rich with museums. It has some of the world’s finest, whose vast collections and global reputations draw in lines of visitors every day. It also has an incredible array of museums whose collections are more specialized and focused as well as some interesting ones which are a bit off the tourist radar. This comprehensive guide covers a widely diverse representation of museums in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx that you should consider visiting while on vacation.
9/11. A day seared in America’s memory and spirit. The 9/11 Memorial, built on the site of the original Twin Towers, is a place of tribute. Visitors to NYC are drawn to it, compelled to just be there.
The idea of going to the memorial on a bike tour may seem a bit unusual, but it’s a wonderful way to see the sights around the financial district. Bike and Roll’s 9/11 Memorial Bike Tour does more than just go there. It’s a thoughtfully planned, total experience.
It’s true, New York City never sleeps! A city of bests, it’s a year-round people magnet, especially in the summer. With the warmth of summer, the always busy city ratchets up a notch as much of the action shifts outdoors. The normally brusque demeanor of New Yorkers softens as they stream to outdoor venues and events. As the heavy layers of winter are shed, a more casual, high energy vibe takes over the city. Everyone, everywhere gets into the act!
When planning sightseeing outings in NYC, one of the last things that comes to mind is doing it by bike, let alone pedaling across the Brooklyn Bridge! It’s not only possible, it’s a blast!
