Since 1976, Manhattan Mini Storage has freed up the closet space of more than 200,000 New Yorkers with units spread throughout the borough. Three months of access to Manhattan Mini Storage's dimensioned 4'x4'x4' compartment gives the space-starved enough room for approximately 10–15 medium-sized boxes, plus clothing, sporting equipment, and small items. All storage spaces come standard with around-the-clock video security, and year-round accessibility with exclusive off-street parking. For oversized handbag and baseball-card collections, the storage company offers larger units, some sizable enough to fit an apartment's worth of furnishings or a decade’s supply of french toast. A concierge service assists in the logistics of the move for an additional cost, helping to keep the stress of moving low.

Manhattan Mini Storage has the space and time to accommodate overstocked packrats and urban rolling stones alike. Availability varies by location, so please phone ahead before making promises to your lawn furniture or Flag Day decorations. In the interest of full disclosure, feel free to check out the company's FAQ page online.

Leading more than 30 bike tours across the nation, the cycling enthusiasts at Bike and Roll fuel a passion for healthy, eco-friendly transportation via guided tours and self-guided rides atop rental bikes. Their fleet of two-wheelers stakes a claim to Trek bicycles—the same brand that propelled Lance Armstrong to victory—and other recreation, transportation, road, and children's bikes. Riders can pedal behind a guide during the Ride 'Round Manhattan tour, which circles the Statue of Liberty and the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial before cruising along the Harlem River bike path. More adventurous cyclists can board rental cycles on their own and confer with free maps to conduct a jaunt across the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges while drinking in the skyline and making Waldo spottings along the river. Bike and Roll also outfits patrons with other specialty transportation, such as in-line skates, segways, and magic carpets programmed to swing past the tops of only historic buildings.:m]]

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.

By collaborating with other businesses, Park Right seized an opportunity to facilitate seamless transportation. At least one manager and a uniformed, clean-shaven crew supervise each lot, many of which partner with Envirowash to offer detailing packages for vehicles in their care. Chauffeurs shuttle drivers in their own cars or in SUVs, sedans, or limos owned by Park Right's sister company, and point those in need of a rental to the Zipcar fleets available at each garage. As consultants, the team shares management expertise with builders, developers, and method actors cast as traffic barrels.
