Many of us are fortunate enough to have Martin Luther King Jr. day off in remembrance of a pioneer in American history. Although many of NY residents use the weekend as another opportunity to hit the slopes or plan a weekend getaway, there are those wanting to stay close to home.

Below we outline three neighborhoods that we recommend visiting this coming Martin Luther King weekend.

A limo to Soho

Soho has long been a neighborhood famous for its restaurants and fashion options. Up-and-coming destinations like Blue Ribbon Brasserie now join classic New York culinary icons like Balthazar and Raoul’s. Soho is also a great area to visit for shopping or to return some gifts from the holidays 😉 The neighborhood is home to icons like Opening Ceremony and designer brands like Alexander Wang.

When your bags get too heavy remember to reserve a Manhattan car service to ensure convenient and relaxing transportation.

Being driven around Alphabet City

Once a neighborhood known for crime and drugs, Alphabet city has undergone somewhat of a renaissance over the past ten years. Edgy restaurants concepts and new outposts of established culinary names now dot the streets. Southern comfort food has become popular in the neighborhood. Root & Bone, Bobwhite Counter, and Clinton Street Bakery offer New York versions of fried chicken, catfish, and collard greens.

Alphabet City is also home to historic performing arts venues where up and coming comedians, musicians and poets hone their craft. The Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) offers comedy shows almost nightly, and it helped to launch the career of comedians like Amy Poehler. Now the UCB offers improv, skit and writing classes to the next wave of comics. Nuyorican Poets Café is a legendary venue for poetry slams, and The Mercury Lounge has made a name for itself as a haven for indie bands.

Comfort food is notorious for being dense and sleep-inducing. Trust a New York limo service to take you home while you sleep off your dinner in the back seat.

Luxury ride to Astoria Queens

Astoria has long been known as an emerging neighborhood in New York City. It has an eclectic atmosphere of traditional mom-and-pop stores and new-age food and entertainment options. The Museum of the Moving Image delights hundreds of thousands of visitors per year as a dedication to film, television and digital media. It is conveniently located next to Kaufman Studios, a premier film studio founded in 1920. The neighborhood is also home to Socrates Sculpture Park, once a landfill turned into an open-air museum and family-friendly park.

Astoria also offers fun hangout spots for big groups like the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden. A large banquet hall and outdoor garden that serves traditional Czech food and beer. The outdoor area serves as an excellent spot for groups to get together in the summer and regularly hosts viewing parties for large sports events like the World Cup.

Before you consider all the options in Astoria, remember that you’ll have to get over a bridge or tunnel to get there. Reserve an NYC limousine service to find the most efficient route to and around Astoria. Parking is minimal so touring this neighborhood with an NYC limo service is more than a luxury.

The upcoming long weekend is the perfect opportunity to explore some of New York City’s great neighborhoods.

Smaller crowds and traffic should make for a less stressful tour of these three great neighborhoods. Remember to reserve a professional chauffeur with Delux Transportation at (516) 883-1900 to help serve as your tour guide.
