This will put you in the heart of the West Village, which is part of the "real" New York, which is just a bunch of neighborhoods, with a rich mixture of shops and restaurants. Good starting point for walking around this cool neighborhood. To get here, walk the 100 steps to Hoboken PATH or take the light rail there. From there, take the PATH toward 33rd st and get off at Christopher Street.

Sightseeing
everyone knows Times Square, ok... but if you want to bike in a beautiful setting, with views of Statue of Liberty, rent a citibike across from modcup and take it down the Congress St elevator and across Hoboken and Jersey City to Jersey Ave, or take a shortcut and take the light rail towards West Side Ave and get off and rent a bike at Jersey Ave station. From there, bike through the park, it is beautiful and has great city views and Statue of Liberty views. Grab a drink at the restaurant in the park and sit by the firepit and take in the city views!

Walk a few blocks to the "100 steps". Make a left from Ogden onto Mountain Road, and hike down until you see the stairs. Take the stairs down then head towards left to walk to downtown Hoboken. Leave enough energy later to walk back up :) or take the light rail toward Tonnelle and get off at 9th st station.
