When I hear the hotel described as both timeless and timely, there's a real excitement about merging with a brand so in tune with both historical and modern aspects.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
City bike company Brooklyn Cruiser has partnered with The High Line Hotel to offer guests bikes for exploring the historic neighborhood, beginning in early July. The hotel will offer two 2013 Brooklyn Cruiser models, the Driggs 3 and Willow 3. Both models are outfitted with Shimano internal three-speed hubs, preconditioned leather saddle and grips, cream tires, and Brooklyn Cruiser’s signature rear crate.
The urban bikes are available free of charge to hotel guests, and will be stationed in the hotel's front garden space. Helmets and locks will also be available, ready for rides through Hudson River Park or for a day of adventure in New York City.
“Offering Brooklyn Cruisers to our guests further cements our commitment to embracing the lively Chelsea neighborhood we're a part of. We're excited to encourage our guests to explore the area, and the style and design of the bikes are an aesthetic match,” said Osama Aduib, General Manager of The High Line Hotel. “The partnership is happening at the perfect time, what with the expansion of bike lanes in Manhattan and so many great spots surrounding the hotel," he added.
"Partnering with The High Line Hotel is an incredible honor," said Ryan Zagata, Brooklyn Cruiser's President. "When I hear the hotel described as both timeless and timely, there's a real excitement about merging with a brand so in tune with both historical and modern aspects. And Chelsea is an apex of culture, art, sights, restaurants -- I'm truly excited guests will be able to take it all in on one of our bikes," he added.
