Mountain biking in the city?

Last weekend I took a mountain bike ride in Queens, New York. Now, some folks will tell you that "Geographically, Queens is technically part of Long Island, and everyone knows that Long Island has no mountains, so, what are you talking about!?" Well, it's true. Queens doesn't have mountains, or even real hills, but a group of dedicated volunteers have been transforming what little terrain the city has into some very cool trails. As recently as five years ago, bikes were not welcome to touch tires to dirt anywhere in the five boroughs.
