Writing a letter or eating a rotisserie chicken aren’t things you should do while driving. During trips to JFK, LaGuardia, Newark, or a range of other locations with drivers from Five Star Limo Car Service Inc., though, patrons don’t have to keep their eyes on the road. As the gleaming vehicles slip through traffic, passengers relax to prepare for stressful business meetings or hammock-modeling gigs.
Colossal train engines once pulled hefty freight along the O&W Railway's main line. Today, where the rails lines formerly cut through glistening tree canopies, a 2-mile unpaved trail splices through six rural hamlets, just 90 miles from New York City. It's along this rails-to-trails path that Woodridge Segway Tours whisks its adventurers through beautiful mountain views, clean country air, and the sounds of fresh water trickling. With safety helmets securely atop their heads, tour takers steer the two-wheeled segway transporters with intuitive gestures: leaning forward to go ahead, leaning backward to reverse, and pulling on their ears to make the segways sing.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
As a native New Yorker who was a former history teacher and an avid foodie, I really enjoy taking people to out of the way places that they would generally never get to see. I also love turning people on to unique places and tastes that they could only find here in New York.
What?s the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best compliments are generally, "this was the best day I ever spent in New York."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I have traveled all over the world but still love my hometown the best and aim to show you why.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our tastings are varied from Polish pirogies, Jewish rugelach, and Italian cannolis to Chinese dumplings.
The friendly guides at Central Park Tours peel back the corners of the Manhattan landmark, showing tourists and native New Yorkers alike its many treasures during walking, bicycle, and pedicab tours. Throughout each educational jaunt around the lush 843-acre park, groups stop and learn about historic sites, such as the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, and the Shakespeare Garden, where the poet grew the tomatoes for his notoriously delicious BLTs. The company doesn't limit its knowledge of the area to just their tours. It also organizes special events, such as corporate gatherings, school functions, and even weddings, right there in the park.
Designed for paddlers of all skill levels aged 11 and over, Hudson River Kayak Tours leads groups along picturesque aquatic arteries. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy a guided tour of the Stony Point lighthouse and battlefield, or push off from Mine Dock Park in Fort Montgomery and paddle toward Popolopen Creek Gorge, heading toward a beautiful waterfall, under bridges, and alongside a bird sanctuary. In addition, every Thursday and Friday, paddlers compete with the sun to see who can make it to Iona Island first.
