I've never seen that tour company Bruce, thanks for the heads up. It's always nice to have a couple recommendations when family and friends come into town. I'm always referring them to Get Up and Ride in Brooklyn since I'm a Brooklynite myself and have gotten amazing feedback. Check them out at http://getupandride.com. I'm really looking forward to trying their new sunset bike tour and rustic dinner bbq in May.

It’s been a (mostly) mild winter, but that’s no reason to be any less excited for spring in New York. Rebound from hibernation in March, April and May with outdoor festivals, lively music performances, hilarious comedy routines and restaurant debuts so good they’ll make you forget about donning any kind of swimwear.—Edited by Jonathan Shannon
