Getting Around

Walking

You will walk. A lot. Bring comfortable shoes. It's also a really great way to explore the city, especially downtown Manhattan.

Subway

NYC is known for its public transportation. The subway runs 24/7. You'll be able to get anywhere. Anytime. Late, late night trains run less frequently and there can be weekend train work.

Bike!

The CitiBike bike sharing program makes it really easy to get around the city by bike. A fantastic way to get around and explore the city, Transportation Alternatives has maps and good resources about biking in NYC. GoogleMaps will route bike routes for you.

Art. Arte. Museums and more

Friday is Free Museum night.

Friday nights in New York City many of our museums are open later and are free! The Whitney has the longest hours from 6-9PM. TimeOut has a great list of late-night museums in New York.

Free and Donation Based Museum

Many of our museums are donation based, listed prices are merely suggested donation. There are the big ones like the Met and the Natural History Museum, but there are many other less well known, but equally fun museums throughout the city.

Music/Performance

Broadway

TKTS Discount Booths offer tickets to Broadway and Off Broadway musicals and plays at up to 50% off. Beat the Times Square lines by heading to South Street Seaport in Manhattan or Metrotech in Brooklyn. If you're interested in seeing a play (denoted with a P), make sure you get on the shorter Play line.

Instead of Broadway try Joe's Pub, Abrons Art Center in Downtown Manhattan and Bam in Brooklyn.
