Cable car to Roosevelt Island
We will head towards 6th Avenue along the southern part of Central Park, passing by the Plaza Hotel, which will remind us of the movie "Home Alone" starring (Macaulay Culkin). We will also see the Apple store and some of the best boutiques on Madison Avenue, all this until we reach the Cable Car station which is the means of transportation to Roosevelt Island, well known for having also appeared in the movie "Spiderman". On the island there are several points of interest that you can visit when we are on the island.
We will continue our route taking the cable car again and moving towards the Bronx district to make our next stop at the Yankees Stadium. The most famous baseball team in New York City. For movie lovers, the Joker stairs is one of the points of interest of the tour to take the picture where the movie was filmed. We will continue our journey to Grand Concord Avenue and then head to the South Bronx, where we will observe authentic works of art (Murals). There you will find the most famous graffiti in the world, each with its own story. We will make some stops to take pictures.
Leaving the Bronx we will move to Queens, another borough of New York. It is the largest and most multicultural borough in New York City. We will enter Malba, an upscale gated community and one of the most expensive outside of Manhattan. We will continue to Flushing Meadows Park, which is to Queens what Central Park is to Manhattan. There we will be able to see the stadium of the Mets, rival team of the Yankees. We will also see the National Tennis Complex where the US Open is held, and the globe from the movie Men In Black. We will leave Flushing Meadows Corona Park to pass by one of the main avenues of Queens (Roosevelt), where we will be able to see the Immigration culture represented in each of its retail stores located along the avenue. We will pass through Little India where the largest Hindu concentration in New York City is located and continue our tour to the borough of Brooklyn.
