We love Staten Island, and Jersey too! This will be the second in a series of NYC Cycling, CULTURE & Food rides!
We'll take the SI ferry to St George, and ride to Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden. A student of 19th century architecture will particularly enjoy a stroll through the 83-acre National Historical Landmark: http://www.snug-harbo...
From there, we will ride over Bayonne Bridge to NJ to Liberty State Park next to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty, eat at Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory close-by in JC - a quintessential Jersey diner well known for their pancakes. After food, we head over to Hoboken. Jersians can head home from there, everyone else can take PATH back to Manhattan.
This will be a 35 mile trip. Not many hills, but we will be riding with traffic through parts of Staten Island and New Jersey. Be ready to ride in a pace line and keep up. Pack a plenty of fluid and snacks as our official food destination will be almost at the end of our trip. It will be a day packed with waterfront parks, walks, sights and pancakes!
