Curiosities City Secrets Seeing the Best of New York City By Motorcycle Sandra Frey

Have you ever thought of seeing the best of New York City by motorcycle? Let us give you a few pointers on how this could be an amazing experience!

Curiosities City Secrets Seeing the Best of New York City By Motorcycle Sandra Frey Cropped

New York City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in America, attracting more than 60 million guests each year. This, thanks to its world-famous landmarks, eclectic cuisine, and unique culture.

If you’re looking for something other than the typical take on the NYC experience, ditch the buses and walking tours! They are quite touristy anyway… Instead experience the best of New York City by motorcycle.

Exploring by bike makes it easy to see parts of the city that other tourists rarely get to enjoy, and it also makes it easy to snap pictures, grab some street food, or simply take in the view.


Exploring Landmarks Downtown

Downtown, you can find many of the major landmarks of Manhattan, including the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, and Freedom Tower. You can also explore more hole-in-the-wall places, including small restaurants and specialty shops in Chinatown, Little Italy and the up and coming, South Seaport.

You can also see the filming locations of certain famous movies, including the Ghostbuster Firehouse, the Tiffany & Co. flagship store from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and many more. For a thrilling ride, you can cruise through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, the longest continuous underwater road in the U.S.


Experience Uptown Scenery

Uptown is known for its stadiums, like the famous Yankee Stadium, and museums through out the artsy Museum Mile. But, primarily tourists head up to see the scenery.

From the perspective of an automatic motorcycle, you can get some of the best possible views driving up the West Side Highway along the Hudson River. You might also see the palisades that rise over five hundred feet above, cross the George Washington Bridge, head up to the Medieval inspired MET Cloisters and wander through the less well known northern areas of Central Park.


Tour Midtown Monuments

Midtown Manhattan is home to the Empire State Building, Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, and other impressive bastions of culture and architecture.

Are you looking for something a little bit more out of the ordinary? You can visit sites such as the mysterious Rose Hill Historic House, the historic C.O. Bigelow Apothecary, or the quirky Chancellor Robert R. Livingston Masonic Library.

You’re looking to avoid the crowds and experience New York City from a unique angle? So, simply tour the city by motorcycle. Traveling by bike makes it easy to get around. You’ll be able to find all of the hidden gems that NYC has to offer.

Whether you’re riding through the streets of downtown New York, enjoying the sights of midtown, or exploring the refined uptown area, touring New York City by motorbike gives you a unique and exhilarating look at the city.

This Is How New Yorkers Like To Eat Out!

Dining Olive Tree Cafe Carpaccio

Do you know how New Yorkers like to eat out? We will show you how Olive Tree Cafe & La Lanterna di Vittorio together, make the perfect night out! This incredible duo will make you travel to Middle Eastern to Italy in a blink of an eye.

Dining La Lanterna di Vittorio Façade

That NY is a really diverse city, we all know. But do you know how some native New Yorkers like to eat? I mean, how would be a perfect dinner for them? I’m sure the opinions are divided. But, according to a group of friends I’ve got, all of them “native New Yorkers”, have an interesting and uncommon way of having a night out.

Ok, so the cool thing here is: having dinner at one restaurant and dessert at another. This is a tradition many New Yorkers keep since their college years. It seems curious, doesn’t it? And let me tell you, after being introduced to this New Yorker style meal, I can say it’s definitely fun and quite adventurous.

I’ll describe below my first experience trying out the combo:

It was a winter evening when my group of friends decided we’d have dinner at Olive Tree Cafe and dessert at La Lanterna Di Vittorio, both on MacDougal Street, located in the West Village. I didn’t know any of these restaurants at that time, so I was super excited about what that night would look like.


First stop: Olive Tree Cafe – Mediterranean, Middle Eastern food

When we got into the restaurant I was immediately impressed by the tables.

They were like chalkboards. Yeah, we could draw, write or doodle on the table, while we were eating. I loved it!

As soon as we were seated I grabbed a chalk and started writing some silly, fun things to get entertained.

The place was cute, decorated with some lamps across the saloon, brick walls and some frames.

The menu offered Middle Eastern salads and main dishes, in addition to hamburgers and sides. As I’m really into Middle Eastern food I tried to order the best I could.

To start, we split a falafel dish. I’m a huge fan of falafel and thought it was great!

Dining Olive Tree Cafe Carpaccio

For the main course I had chicken kebob that was served with rice or mashed potato – I picked rice – and a salad made with cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and a few spices. It was really rich!

My friends ordered different dishes, all of them pretty tasty. But, one of them got my attention. It was a combination of falafels, baba ganoush, kefta kebob and a salad.

So, I couldn’t hold myself back from asking my friend to try a little bit of his dish, and what can I say, fantastic!

After eating and playing a lot with the chalk, we were ready to head for dessert.

Note: Olive Tree Cafe is part of the Comedy Cellar, a notorious comedy club located right below it.

Hours:
Friday – Saturday: 11am – 4am
Sunday – Thursday: 11am – 2:30am

Location: 117 MacDougal Street

Second stop:La Lanterna di Vittorio – Italian food

Dining La Lanterna di Vittorio Garden

First of all, the ambience of the place was extremely cozy. The dimmed lights made me feel as my simple dessert hunt with friends, was a real special occasion.

I highly recommend for a date, although it was not my case. I was just having fun with my friends.

It was winter so the fireplace was lit. My friend asked for a table in the back, which made me question: in the back??

Oh! What I didn’t know was they have a charming winter garden tucked away in their back area!

The space is decorated with some colorful and fun details like the lamps in a Greekish-Italian style.

Surely, a lovely place to spend the rest of a great night with friends.

Dining La Lanterna di Vittorio Inside

Time to order, and they had a great variety of desserts or dolci, like you’ll see written on their menu.

From American to Italian and other European cakes and sweets, I felt like Alice in “Dessertland”.

They also displayed the desserts close to the entrance so I decided to get up and chose mine, with my eyes. I chose a delicious chocolate mud cake and it was actually my first time having one. So delicious!

My friends had canolis, fruit pie and the gelati.

The result: Every single one of us left extremely happy and satisfied! It was truly the perfect duo, specially considering they are located on the same street, just steps from each other.

Note: La Lanterna has a room downstair with live music, so do ask about it!

Hours:
Friday & Saturday: 10am – 3am
Sunday – Thursday: 10am – 2am

Location: 129 MacDougal Street

That night was just the first experience I had in this “New Yorker” style.

I loved it so much that I’ve repeated it countless times, but in different restaurants. It’s a great way to also optimize your stay in New York and explore more places at once.

I do want to emphasize that both Olive Tree Cafe and La Lanterna di Vittorio serve really tasty food. I do eat full meals at both places too. Plus, I’ve always had a great time.

But, if you enjoyed this duo-restaurant adventurous night out, get ready! Have fun, meet different people after all, that’s what NYC is all about!

In addition, if you visit these restaurants, do tag us on your Instagram and let us know what you thought about your dish!

Lastly, to explore other restaurants in the West Village, you might want to check out: Shuraku, for a high-end Japanense option; and Hudson Clearwater, for a mysterious and secluded dining experience.

Abandoned Bannerman Castle: Mystery on a Hudson River Island

Day Trips and Travels Bannerman Castle Island Hudson Valley

We are huge fans of exploring the abandoned places around New York City and it’s no different when we head upstate. The abandoned Bannerman Castle is located on a super tiny Hudson River Island.

This video is fantastic, right?

The abandoned Bannerman Castle is definitely one of the spots we recommend visiting if you decide to head upstate. We love the thrill of exploring mysterious locations, with some of the most incredible historical facts. The stories are always intriguing!

See below what our friends from Untapped Cities said about it:

“Recently, we shared a drone video by the crew Abandoned NY. Don’t to be confused with Abandoned NYC, the website and book by Will Ellis, of North Brother Island.

At the time, they told us their next video would be of Bannerman Island. This former munitions facility designed like a fairy-tale European castle looms over the Hudson River Valley.

That video was recently released, reinforcing the group’s penchant for extremely dramatic soundtracks and stunning aerial shots of storied, abandoned places.

Since our last visit there, stabilizing elements have been added. That somewhat make the impact of the castle, but it’s still an amazing place to see.

The best part: you can actually visit Bannerman Island yourself. Tours are led in partnership between the Bannerman Island Trust and New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.”

In addition, their most sought-after tours last 2.5 hours and leave from Beacon. They cost $35/person.

By the way, since you’ll be boarding the ferry from Beacon, you might want to visit before or after the tour, the renowned contemporary museum Dia: Beacon.

But, they do have a great variety of options.

There’s even an option to the sport-lovers: “Bannerman Island Guided Tour & Mini Hike to the Summit” where you arrive at the top neat sunset time! Gorgeous view, guys!

Lastly, many of our readers and clientes don’t have time to organize these type of activities, so they ask our team of experts to set it all up. It’s also a great option of companies that want to offer unforgettable upstate experiences to their clients or team.

Tastings in New York and Upstate that will blow your mind

Dining Red Hook Winery Tastings Glamour Mag Outdoor

We contribute with Glamour Brazil magazine. This post was about great spots for tastings in New York and Upstate.

Here is the Portuguese version and below, the English version:

New York is not only a perfect place for people who love art, shows, nightlife, shopping, gastronomy, but the “city that never sleeps” offers great options for those who enjoy wine, beer, whiskey and gin tastings.

Since several of these tastings take place inside their own factories, many are located in Brooklyn – a neighborhood big enough to host these huge buildings. Another cool spot is a winery only 2 hours from Manhattan with tastings, outdoor yoga classes and happy hours with jazz music.



If you have no time to organize any of these experiences and need help, see below what we can do for you! After all, they are great spots for tastings!

Do you need help to organize any of the tours of the day trips? Contact our experts so they can tell you about our Concierge Services!

As you walk down Hudson Street in the West Village, you might see a common restaurant façade that doesn’t say much. When you walk in, and head to the back of the restaurant, you’ll find with beautiful courtyard, nestled in the middle of Manhattan.

We all know how crazy about outdoor areas New Yorkers are, and even though, we’d love to keep this spot a secret, it’s our job to share it! Lucky you!

The food can be characterized as American Nouveau with Chef Wes Long and Chef Peter Phillips at the helms.

Therefore, do try the seared duck breast; the ricotta gnocchi with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, herb romesco, charred leek vinaigrette, piave cheese; their lunch time sandwiches are a great option; and during the weekends, for brunch, we love the poached eggs & roasted tomatoes with crème fraîche and grilled country bread; and the hudson scrambled eggs with cheese, tomato, avocado, chives, mushrooms and grilled country bread.

Aren’t you already salivating, just reading about the dishes above? Well, we are, just by writing!

In the warmer months, tables are set up in the courtyard for al fresco dining and cocktailing, as we mentioned above.

*Pictures were taken during the month of October!*

Here is what Vicky shares with us:

Sounds like the perfect timing to escape the city and explore the Hudson Valley. One of its gems is the Storm King Art Center – a contemporary outdoor sculpture museum where you can enjoy a nice cultural day outdoors.

To start, it’s located in the lower Hudson area, one hour north of New York. The property has 500-acre landscape of fields, hills and woodlands.

This outdoor museum features a collection with more than 100 sculptures created by renowned artists like Barnett Newman, Louise Bourgeois, Maya Lin and Richard Serra.

A great way to experience the landscape Storm King has to offer is touring the gardens on a bike!

Rentals are first-come, first-served, so be sure to see that as soon as you get there.

They also offer a small kiosk with food and drinks, but don’t expect a huge sit down lunch. Options are limited and if you have any food restrictions, we recommend you bringing something from home to guarantee you’ll be fine!

In addition, one of the options to get to Storm King is via Metro North train from Grand Central Terminal to Beacon. Then, you can get a taxi from Beacon to the Storm King.”

Lastly, Storm King reopens Wednesday, April 5th at 10am! They are offering a free Storm King Family Membership to their first visitor on the 5th! So, if you’re interested, don’t forget to hurry up there.

So, we can’t wait to be back there this year!

The space is literally amazing, and from the outside you’d never imagine it! It’s a mixture of coffeeshop, bar, restaurant with a great courtyard.

It has natural light all over the place, which is definitely one of the highlights here. There is nothing better that seeing the light of day during a fun lunch, and specially during your work hours!

The menu is very diverse, ranging from bagels & pastries, to breakfast specials, salads, snacks, sandwiches and desserts. I’m vegetarian and usually eat their salads (love the Farro Salad), or the sandwiches. One of the waitresses is also vegetarian and knows me, so they are also good and trying to improvise a sandwich for you! We love it!

There are numerous drink options too like cocktails, house classics, shooters, beer, wine, liquor, and obviously tea and different types of coffee! Ah! And for happy hour, drinks are 50% off!

It’s opened for everyone to just walk in, sit, work, have fun, meet young, interesting people, curious minds and have great food.

Wifi is free and you have energy plugs all around, so it’s perfect for people that come in and work. It’s certainly a freelance friendly place!

Oh, and the “play” happens after work hours. The place gets quite full, loud music and great people! No tourists! At night hours, things really get exciting, music is loud, lights are dimmed and people are dancing and having so much fun!

I’m sure you will have a great time there, and maybe, even bump into me!  Come say “Hi” and Meet, Work, Play at Freehold.

What’s close by?
