Getting Around New York
Manhattan is one of the easiest cities to navigate because it is laid out on a grid system so you always know where you are and whether you are heading uptown or downtown. Avenues run north to south and streets run east to west. Our advice – pack comfortable walking shoes!
There are more than 10,000 yellow cabs in New York. It's easy to hail one – just stick your hand above your head and whistle (if you can).
The subway is a fast and affordable way to get around New York City. You will find detailed subway maps near the entrance to subway stations. Always move to the centre of the subway car.
Don't limit yourself. Make sure you take to the river, or sky, to get a different perspective on the city. There are plenty of water crafts that will take you out to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island.
