Uptown Route
Discover world-class museums, culture and, of course, Central Park on this tour of Uptown Manhattan and Harlem. You'll see Time Warner Center, Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Dakota apartment building (the former home of Beatles star John Lennon), Apollo Theater, Harlem Market and the Central Park Zoo, among others.

Brooklyn Route
Many people who visit New York never set foot outside of Manhattan, but that would mean missing out on so many wonderful treasures just across the river! Starting in downtown Manhattan, cross the Manhattan Bridge and into Brooklyn to discover the rebirth of NYC’s hottest up-and-coming borough. Here you'll see the first parkway for cars ever built in the US, admire the majesty of Grand Army Plaza, and make stops at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum. You'll discover graceful mansions, intriguing shops and restaurants and a wide array of cultures.

Bronx Route
Get a good look at one of the lesser-touristy New York City neighborhoods on the Bronx loop. Starting at famed Harlem Market, where up to 100 vendors from a wide range of African countries sell their wares, enjoy the sights from the comfort of the bus as you cross 125th Street and over into the Bronx. See to the Grand Concourse, the elegant boulevard that lured millions to make their homes nearby, including Edgar Allan Poe. You'll stay on board up until the new Yankee Stadium, where you can hop off to see where the legendary New York Yankees play.
