The owners of the River Crossing apartment complex in East Harlem announced that they are supporting a new bike rental pilot program on Randall’s Island for visitors to enjoy on weekends throughout the spring and summer. Visitors will be able to walk over the 103rd Street pedestrian bridge and pick up a bike on Randall's Island to spend a day exploring its scenic pathways and gardens, viewing interactive waterfront art, visiting the urban farm, or attending one of the many summer weekend events on the island. The bike rental will be operated by Blazing Saddles New York, and a range of rental bikes will be available for children and adults starting May 23, Memorial Day weekend. 

River Crossing, owned by Brookfield Property Group and Urban American, is located at 1956 First Avenue, just down the block from the 103rd Street Walking Bridge. In addition to supporting the bike rental, they will offer discounted parking at River Crossing’s parking garage, which will be especially convenient for parents whose children play sports on the island’s superior playing fields and at Icahn Stadium.

  1. What an excellent idea. I wouldn't have thought of going over to Randall's Island if it were not for this. So, now I'm planning to go.
