Since the heyday of Ellis Island, New York City has been America’s, and arguably the world’s, biggest and greatest melting pot. The striving energy and cultural influence that present-day immigrant populations contribute to this town continue to be one of the city’s greatest strengths.

With ride distances of 35, 55, 75 and 100 miles, Transportation Alternatives’ 25th Annual NYC Century Bike Tour passes through 44 neighborhoods, giving you an incredible look at the vibrant cultural melange that makes up many of the less-seen sides of NYC.

Here are four quintessentially New York neighborhoods, off-the-beaten-footpath, but perfect for taking in by bike at the upcoming NYC Century on Sunday, September 7th.
