What's the best way to get around?

Subway is fastest to get around There are many subway maps you can download for your phone. i like "roadify" and "mymta" - once installed, you don't need wifi to see the maps if you are down in the station without service

Nicole

Citi bike Citi bike is an app where you can pick up bikes and drop them off all over the city. there is a limit of 30 minutes for each ride. in my opinion, it's the best way to see the city. get a day pass unlimited for only $12 and you'll easily be able to see all the best attractions in one day. the hudson path is an amazing bike route on the edge of the city that is super easy to ride on with great views. download the app citi bike to use. there are also kiosks at most docking stations. you can ride on the street where the cars on too when you're in the city if there aren't bike lanes. this might sound scary but the cars are super attentive to bikers.

Subway riding Getting around on the subway seems intimidating but it's rather easy. once you get into every station, you'll see uptown signs (north) and downtown signs (south). google maps has a public transit tab that looks like a train. this will guide you to the right subway station. when getting around, it's important to know there are often local and express trains (skips some stations and is faster).

Erik

Car service If you're looking for a car service to pick you up, there are different services in nyc than elsewhere. there is still lyft and uber, but there is also juno and via. juno & via are cheaper than uber and lyft. via has both private car options and shared car rides that are extremely cheap compared to other services. via is also cheapest service to and from the airports.

Erik

Subways are quickest & cheapest We recommend you use an app like google maps on your smartphone to navigate the subway system. it is very intuitive and simple to learn.

Try revel electric mopeds! If you have a valid driver's license, you can download the revel app and rent any of the blue mopeds on the sidewalk in the area. they're cheap, fun, and you can leave them wherever you go! use code "fkrpc" for $5 off!

Ben

Get weekly subway pass for unlimited rides Weekly subway passes are a great way to get around affordably. late nights or after a long day, uber, lyft, via, and juno are a great on-demand alternative and tend to be cheaper than yellow cabs.

What's the local culture like?

Local art galleries From 16th st. to 29th st., between 10th and 11th avenues, there are more than 350 art galleries that are home to modern art from upcoming artists and respected artists. chelsea art district is one of the most important and influential in the world. while you're there, be sure to stroll along the highline, a recently redesigned aerial greenway that runs along the lower west side of manhattan.

Phone etiquette It's not polite to order or speak to someone when you are looking at your phone. also, if you are walking down the stairs or trying to catch the subway, be sure not to text at the same time.

What should I not miss?

Hudson river greenway Perfect for biking or walking and taking in the beautiful views. to enter follow the ramp on 158th that goes under the henry hudson parkway. the bike path and pedestrian path runs all way downtown from here. excellent attraction in order to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, have a picnic, have a bike ride, and enjoy the nature and beautiful water views.

Edgemere farm hosts a market every friday, and there is a great farmer's market on beach 74th street Farmer's market saturday and sunday is great, hosted in a small warehouse- can get most everything organic, from green tomatoes to fresh lavender.

Sightseeing like a local Smorgasburg in brooklyn, central park great lawn, walk across the brooklyn bridge, sunset ferry ride between manhattan and brooklyn. grab a drink at the public hotel (reserve for dinner to be secured a table on the rooftop) and hop on the ferry back to midtown manhattan, you'll pass all 3 major bridges while the sun sets behind the skyline.

Metrocards are cheaper if you buy a bundle! Each fare is $2.75. depending on how many days, and how much walking you may intend to do, consider buying an unlimited 7 days metrocard for only $31 dollars. unlimited cards can be used as many times as you need daily on buses and trains. but the best! is not having to stop to replenish your card!

Loyda

Museums are free on tuesdays! Also, new york museums are funding by private organizations, therefore, they have enough money so they do not need to charge. you don't need to pay their entrance fees, give them a contribution, and you are good to go!

Bring your water bottle! New york tap water is perfectly fine to drink, you don't need to buy bottled water at any time.

What are some local customs?

Madison square park Grab a bite to eat near madison square park and enjoy the people watching. we recommend dig in for salads, or the famous shake shack in the park. or try indian food from desi galli on lexington and 27th.

Escalators When on escalators, stand on the right side. this allows people that want to walk the escalator to pass on the left.

Nicole

Homeless people There is a decent homeless population in the city. don't engage with them and anyone that asks you to buy anything just keep walking. it's normal and they will leave you alone. walk with a purpose and you won't look like a tourist. you may see them on the subway as well, don't give them money. it's illegal to beg for money on subways and it only encourages them. this may sound heartless but the homeless in new york are well taken care of and there are lot's of places for them to eat. if you give them money, 99% of the time you're fueling their drug habit.
