More Information About Visiting New York

Navigating New York can seem like a daunting prospect. So, we’d like to help you get here and get around without stress.

First things first: getting here. Check out our handy guides detailing travel by plane to six area airports, three bus terminals, two central train stations and some tips on driving to the city. Beyond just a listing of the how and where to arrive, we also let you know what to expect and how to get from your Point A of the airport, bus terminal or train stations to Point B via taxis and public transportation (and what you can expect to pay).

Arriving is of course just part of the fun – now you have to find your way around. The city is expansive, but transportation is reliable and public transportation is very affordable. We’ll give you the inside scoop on how to figure out bus routes, subway maps, best (and worst) times to catch a cab, scenic ferry rides and how to commute like a native New Yorker – on your own two feet. Plus, we’ll pass along important overview information like key neighborhoods, how streets and avenues run and the difference between Uptown and Downtown and the places in-between.

We’ll set you up with helpful tips to make getting here and getting around safe and simple. Important tidbits like the average cost of taxis and public transportation, how to board buses, what to expect from weekend subway schedules and how to walk without getting trampled on in these busy streets. So check out our guides, pick up a detailed map of New York City and start your New York adventure!
