The bike display sprawls across three stories and more than 33,000 square feet, and bike giveaways throughout the weekend arm patrons for stylish riding or perfecting their slow-motion Lance Armstrong impressions. In Bikelandia, the show's seminar portion, authors and experts present on cyclist issues such as New York’s bike lanes, and a fashion show flaunts the trendiest bike outfits and accessories. As they tour the festivities, patrons can sip complimentary pints at the Grolsch Lager beer garden and nosh on mouth-watering eats. The show also benefits Transportation Alternatives, a group that advocates for stronger biking, walking, and public-transit infrastructure.

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. As the gentle tornadoes of summer give way to the leafy color-carnage of fall and ice avalanches of winter, customers will be able to easily get in and out of Manhattan Mini Storage thanks to its off-street parking and complete lack of surly bouncers holding check-boards. For oversize 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.
