You can ride a continuous 9-mile bike path from Brooklyn to The Bronx now

I didn't make this connection at first, but apparently with the recent completion of the Chrystie Street bike lane, there is now a continuous 9-mile bike lane route from Brooklyn all the way to the Bronx. I've biked on every single part of this stretch of bike lane and it is always fun to do because you pass by so much of NYC at a leisurely pace. Spectacular views of the East River as well as an option to venture into Randall's Island (and then into the Bronx).

By the way, if you don't already know, you can download the NYC Bike Map here.
