We explore Richmond Hill Queens, also known as Little Guyana for the many Guyanese people who live there.  

Richmond Hill is also the neighborhood where many notables lived such as Anais Nin, Jack Kerouac, and home ‘hood of Rodney Dangerfield, a graduate of Richmond Hill High School.  Richmond Hill is also known for its beautiful Victorian homes often referred to as the “painted ladies."  We will pass some of them by on our route. 

Read about Little Guyana here:

We start at the Queensborough Bridge and take the new Kosciuiszko Bridge bike path into Greenpoint and ride through the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg before heading into Queens.  We will point out the Harry Houdini gravesite in Cypress Hills, Queens as we ride by.  Lunch in Richmond Hill, of course.  Return through Queens neighborhoods of Ozone Park, Glendale, Kew Gardens and so on.  We will ride through parks and greenways when available. 

We will pick up lunch at Carifesta or one of the many other options along Liberty Avenue & picnic in Rizzutto Park.  

We have noted the many NYC neighborhoods we ride though on the paper cue sheet and RWGPS.  If you use RWGPS audio you will be prompted for turns as well as neighborhoods.
