Have you ever ridden one?
I've had a TREK 7.5 FX for several years. It will do fine on the trails of Long Island. It also does very well on the road. And it's more upright position, which you can change by moving some of the hadset spacers around, offers a goodview of traffic, nice if you want to take it into NYC.
If you want something different from your road bikes drop bars, this would be a good choice.
