Why Visit New York?

New York is energy and attitude, pure and unrestrainable. Everything about it is larger than life, from the bright lights and bustling streets of Times Square, to the over-the-top magnificence of Broadway, to the imposing symbol of freedom and American ideals that is the Statue of Liberty. A centre of finance and business, of fashion and design, of art, music, entertainment and gastronomy, the city never sleeps. Not for nothing is it called the Capital of the World.

NYC Public transport


You can hail a yellow cab on almost any street corner. Taxis are inexpensive and an easy way to travel. There are nighttime and rush hour surcharges. Remember to leave a tip. Manhattan has very long streets and avenues and it’s important to know both the address and the cross street of your destination. A taxi is vacant if the yellow light on top of the car is completely lit.


If you’re going somewhere too far to walk, the subway is the way to go. Most subway lines travel up and down Manhattan, while buses travel across. Subways run 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. You can buy a one week unlimited Metrocard if you know you will travel a lot. Ticket machines in subway stations accept cash, credit and debit cards. Subway maps are free from all ticket or information booths.


Most buses in Manhattan follow the north-south or east-west grid of the city, primarily on the larger avenues. Bus stops are marked by a light-blue sign on a green post (and include a list of bus numbers and routes), and the $2.75 fare can be paid either in exact change or with the MetroCard, with which you can transfer for free between metro and bus services. If transferring without a card, the driver can give passengers a free transfer coupon. Buses run frequently and, for the most part, all night, but traffic can make a long ride out of a short distance.
