NYC Scenes

Away from it all

Wow…The East River Bikeway is great. We needed to find some space in NYC to hit baseballs around for a school science experiment.I thought we should try the East-side, so off we went on our first family bike ride of the season.

After the congestion and all the new rules and regulations of Battery Park City this was like we found GOLD!

Nobody on the field?

Holy crap run for it!

Hard to believe!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were getting hungry, I remembered this really cool old diner style restaurant in Southbridge Towers on Water St.

Great idea…normal looking neighborhood people no security anywhere and not one tourist!

Very laid back

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our New Get-a-way!

Hope they don't mind taking pics of the signs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think I’m the only one that notices the Zip Tie Project…

 

Nice lookin lamp post

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zip Ties on my body sock tower

UMP Zip Tie - not to bad

Kickstart Spin/Small Haul NYC

Just a great stretch of weather the last two weeks…Here are some NYC scenes I caught got while you were at work!

OWS Cowboy

Marathon runners enjoy the view

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peace and Quiet almost

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Runners were all over downtown sporting their Marathon Medals. I asked the group sitting on the bench(above) how they liked Running NYC for the day. Seems they are not that fond of entering Manhattan….  Brooklyn is King!

I totally understand why!

 

One of my happy customers…..Puro Chile

One year anniversary

Puro Chile Participates in Travel & Leisure Global Bazaar

Although this isn’t the actual pod used in the rescue was still exciting to see it at

Puro Chile

221 Center Street,

NYC,NY

 

Camilla will be happy to help you! She also invited me to get into the pod for a picture, just in to big of a hurry!

Good use of a car in NYC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Midtown traffic continues to be an absolute  NIGHTMARE especially on the east side. What happened to that incredible Don’t Block the Box campaign? Is it possible drivers read it WRONG and are doing the best they can to BLOCK the BOX? I sat through two GREEN lights before I was able to squezzzzze through!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally some Peace and quiet.

I know it may be hard to believe but the East Side Bike way is a great place to get away from it all!

Love riding the East Side Bike way

Cycleyes’d in Purple – NYC Scenes

CycleEyes’d on my Sunday Night Kickstart Spin!

What I thought was a Recording Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Turned out to be World Famous Asylum Studio Tattoo’s. Great meeting you guys!

Tattoo in NYC this is the place!

For Mothers Day?

Free water in Union Square, I guess nobody knows. Maybe people think its for horses?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tour Bus getting a ticket on South End Avenue

I wonder how many of their customers would dare take a ride in the street?

Wish I could have hauled this stuff home from Williamsburg

They have a nicer couch than I do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ran into Adam Purple riding his bike up Bedford Avenue. In case you’re wondering he looked great, in his 80’s!

I called his name and he stopped for a chat…

I tried to get a photo but memory was all full. This photo is from The Circle be Unbroken

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember The Garden? Watch the video really sad.

Cycling around NYC is so much fun!

 

Great Weather for a Ride

Pedestrian safety monitors on Brooklyn Bridge?

These couple of days have brought everyone out on the bikeway. From cargo bikers to the physically challenged!

You can take your family anywhere with the right cycle!

They figured out how to get out on bikes – Great set-up!

Look inside the trailer!

Hand-Cyclists on their way, cool Trikes...Central Park - NYC


Friends from Nahant, MA – on the EZ Tandem in Central Park

 

Even though I was out with friends and family I just couldn’t resist snapping some photos!

Thrilled MS rider completes 15 mile ride on our EZ3 Trike.

Caught this Vita Coco Media Truck in midtown….I really liked the wrap job.

Very Nice Wrap

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think these Media Cycles stand up very nicely to the truck wrap and they’re much more Urban Friendly!

A little creativity can go a long way


Scenes from Small Haul NYC

 

Sunday night Kickstart…

5th Avenue, all clear for a change!

 

 

Found myself on the east side of Manhattan, not quite as bike friendly as the west especially with the UN in session!

 

 


Why are there bikes in the Ferrari Showroom?

 

Is Ferrari having trouble selling cars?

 

 

 


Traffic on Church Street is off the meter!

Even downtown is tight

 

 

 

 

Don’t even think of driving between East 34th and 59th Streets-You’ll be very sorry!

Police bikes line South Street

 

 

Protest on Wall Street

NO BULL!

Ugliest cargo I've ever seen

 


Nice looking hotel on East 61st street

Nice Porch

What a surprise, kinda out of place

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Very exciting city, still love and hate it!

Zipping Around East Village

Great use of zip ties!

 

My First Ride

I remember my first ride down the Hudson River Bikeway post 9/11. At the time I lived in Palisades, NY. I rode to work everyday over the George Washington Bridge. The Towers always dominated the NYC skyline by a long way. After 9/11 I would stop halfway, mid span and stare at the empty space in complete disbelief.

I rode down the bikeway yesterday from West 59th Street except this time 10 years after there’s the new Freedom Tower – its amazing to see it rise so fast after an 8 year wait getting started. 

I felt the same surreal feeling creeping through my body that I had the first time I dared ride down the Hudson River Bikeway to see that the Towers were really gone.

Just getting started

Along the way

Bike, Boat… Take Three

Three island hop right here in NYC!

Waiting for the ferry

Sizing up the Gold Rush. Wall Street Pier


I was so thrilled with the NY Waterway’s East River Ferry that I insisted my family come for a Labor Day ride!

Tearing Jackson away from baseball isn’t easy!

It’s a great way to escape the city. We ferried from Pier 11 to Dumbo and rode the new bikeway to Red Hook for lunch on the Fairway patio overlooking NY Harbor!

We got a great bonus The Queen Mary was in town. We were able to ride right up to her without one tourist in sight!

Great View

BIG

Nice quiet street a long way from NYC!

Lunch on the Fairway patio

The Terminal in Red Hook


Barge

Old Rusted Trolley's

Bikeway to Fairway

Since it was a cloudy day there was hardly a wait at the Governor’s Island ferry from Brooklyn so we decided to go over,  loop the island and come home for free!

Cruising on Governor's Island

Queen Mary from Governor's Island

Governors Island is much more fun on a cloudy day, seems to keep the crowds away. I think our next ferry adventure will be the Kent Avenue bikeway in Williamsburg!

Really thrilled to have such a great way to exit the city with kids!
