AllCar Rent a Car helps travelers brave the streets of the Big Apple with a fleet of compacts, sedans, and SUVs. From the zippy Ford Focus and comfy Toyota Camry to the Ford Escape and a huge moving van, the company's vehicle selection accommodates needs of all types. The company’s eleven locations around the city and boroughs are excellent starting points for cruising to different spots in the city, from Times Square to the Statue of Liberty's favorite manicurist in Brooklyn. To make the process easier, AllCar picks up and drops off customers as needed.
Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower drive three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Drivers conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.
Icon Parking Systems' parking facilities safely house vehicles of all shapes and sizes as owners go to work, relax at home, or take in the sights of the Big Apple. Conveniently tucked in the most prestigious corners of Manhattan—which are also the areas least menaced by aimless teenage tow-trucks—these lots offer easy access to any number of restaurants, Broadway theaters, and concert halls. Many automotive stables have no daily or weekly time limit, so drivers may come and go as they please or leave rides in the same spot for dedicated, month-long portraits. Monthly customers can sign up for the Preferred Customer Club, which grants them an exclusive card and half-off parking at any of Icon Parking Systems' 200 facilities or UFO landing pads scattered throughout Manhattan.
Located on the periphery of Manhattan's legendary park, Central Park Bike Rental and its staff of licensed tour guides facilitate exploration of the city. Solo adventurers mount single or tandem rental cruisers, mountain bikes, or road cycles and, equipped with included helmets, baskets, and locks, take off like hungry earthworms burrowing toward the center of the Big Apple. When tour guides captain excursions, they supplement the leisurely pace of two-hour Central Park bike tours with a steady stream of historical facts. They’ll also make pit stops at famous sites, including the Shakespeare Garden and Belvedere Castle, a weather station that still predicts impending disasters. After returning their Trek bikes, riders can return to the park to imitate more than 1,400 animals living at the Central Park Zoo. Patrons who wish to see the city without exerting themselves can opt for a one-hour pedicab tour. During these tours, guides propel up to three passengers or six toddlers stacked up inside three trench coats to their desired destinations, pointing out the best eateries and landmarks along the way.
