Robert de Niro’s Greenwich Hotel has partnered with neighboring boutique, Shinola, to offer guests complimentary use of the latest his-and-hers hand-assembled Bixby bicycles for an invigorating ride about town.
Located one block from Hudson River Park, The Greenwich is the ideal jumping off point for a ride along the Hudson River Bicycle Path, past landmark buildings, piers, local joggers and cyclists, and the most iconic sights of New York City, from Battery Park to the George Washington Bridge. The dedicated staff are also happy to provide lunch for sustenance during each ride, along with a list of idyllic picnic spots from which to enjoy your vittles.
Pedal past some of the most iconic sights of New York City, from Battery Park to the George Washington Bridge.
When you decide to pause for your alfresco picnic, lay out a blanket, and prepare for a feast. Sip on cold-pressed juices, like the vibrant Tre Stelle, made with a combination of pomegranate, Valencia and blood orange juices; and savor an eggplant sandwich loaded with burrata, tomato, escarole, and roasted peppers from chef Andrew Carmellini’s Locanda Verde kitchen as you take in views of the Statue of Liberty and beyond.
After a leisurely cruise on your three-speed Bixby bikes, visit the Shinola flagship store, around the corner from the hotel, to browse their expertly handcrafted leather goods and watches. To relax after a your outing, consider a session in The Greenwich’s Japanese-inspired Shibui Spa. Enjoy a soothing hot sake bath to restore moisture to your skin and achieve a Zen-like state while relieving stress and fatigue. A New Year’s tradition in Japan, soaking in sake is said to help clear evil spirits and give way to new beginnings. That works for us any day of the week.
