My wife is attending Surtex next week at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan and I plan to take the day off to go to NYC with her. I won't be walking the show floor with her and thought I could get some riding in to kill 3-4 hours. It's not exactly touring, but, I'm looking for some advice. Specifically:
1. Where I might be able to find some posted bike routes of NYC
2. Sights to see - I'm thinking I'll go from 34th down to Battery Park to see the Status of Liberty and ride Broadway to hit the Ed Sullivan Theater and then up to Central Park but I'm guess that will leave me with some spare time...
3. Does the George Washington Bridge have a bike / walking lane - I'd love a pic with the cityscape in the background (are there other better city scape vantage points).
4. Areas to avoid - my wife is leery of my riding in NYC so I want to assure here I'll be sticking to safe/safer sections of town.
Thanks in advance.
