New York City Travel Tips & Suggestions

I have visited NYC nine times and am going for ten. It is a totally the best city in the western hemisphere. I love the hustle and bustle -- so many things to see. They have a great subway system but it takes time to figure it out. I have been to the Letterman Show (won tickets). It's a great city -- go to New York. You'll love it -- I guarantee it.

It is the best city in the world and I dream of it everyday. Get the Manhattan map and ride the subways. Everybody is so friendly and gives you directions on the streets -- from the cops to the wealthy business people. There is always something to do and lots of things to do for free like the sightseeing. Get a weekly pass for $27 at LGA when you arrive or at Penn Station. Call the MTA and get directions to wherever you want to go. Ride the free ferry to Staten Island -- a free, close look at Statue of Liberty. Go to the pier in the Greenwich Village. Go eat lunch in Central Park. Take a little extra money and shop at the big street fair on Saturdays in the same area in the summer and spring. It moves to a different location each weekend so ask where it is. I l love New York! Can't you tell?

When you are in New York City, always have quarters so you can ride the buses easily.

I captured the most amazing pictures from the NY Waterway Tour -- take the ninety-minute water tour. It's the best! NY Waterway was awesome!

Dont get too drunk, because the subway system can get confusing if you're not familiar with it.

I went on a great tour. We went to three clubs in Greenwich Village and heard three live bands.

It's hot in the summertime. The subway is stinky and sweaty.

Take a good pair of walking shoes, and even in May you will want to bring a jacket!
