BIKE TOUR C – THE SENSATIONAL PARK AND SOUL TOUR
New York City
The East Side of Manhattan is the city’s wealthiest neighborhood with extravagant brownstones and mansions. Next door is Central Park, which never fails to amaze with its sheer natural beauty (all man-made). As we pedal through the park we’ll visit Strawberry Fields, the only “beach” on Manhattan Island, the North Woods loch, an authentic 3500 year old obelisk, an $18 million lawn, as well as one of the largest stands of still-surviving magnificent elms in the western world. Highlights in Harlem include a live Sunday gospel service, as well as a dramatic poetry reading by the home of the “Black” Carl Sandberg. We’ll see Clinton’s new office and a former grand synagogue that is now a major Black church! We’ll even hear “Sachmo” playing a composition by “the Duke” beneath an unusual statue to this great composer.
