A Letter from the Mayor

Dear Friends: Welcome to New York City! The world-renowned cultural institutions, recreational venues and public spaces across all five of New York’s dynamic boroughs continue to offer returning and first-time visitors limitless options to immerse themselves in the energy of our city. New York City is constantly offering new programming found nowhere else, and our unmatched diversity and iconic attractions keep millions of travelers coming back time and time again. Winter is a particularly wonderful season to be in New York as the City heats up with some of the best celebrations of the year. Join the brave swimmers ringing in the New Year with an icy swim at the Coney Island Polar Bear Club’s annual plunge or watch warmly from the sidelines. Watch dragons and lions dance through the heart of Chinatown in one of our city’s most beloved cultural celebrations, the Lunar New Year Parade and Festival. For foodies looking for the finest gastronomic experiences, NYC Restaurant Week serves up prix-fixe dishes at more than 300 local eateries, and if your eyes happen to be bigger than your appetite, head over to the New York Hall of Science to marvel at the world’s largest gingerbread village. Take some time to smell the flowers at the New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show or lace up your skates for a spin on the ice rink in Staten Island’s beautiful Clove Lakes Park. The shorter days of winter leave no shortage of things to do in New York. I hope you enjoy your visit—and that you come back soon and take in even more of our great city. Sincerely,

Bill de Blasio Mayor 2 NYC & Company | Official Visitor Guide

Geographic Orientation The City’s five boroughs—the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island—are linked by bridges, tunnels and ferries. Manhattan is an island 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles wide (at its widest). Except at its southern and northern tips, it has avenues running north and south, and streets running east and west. Traffic generally travels one way, going east on even-numbered streets and west on oddnumbered streets. Fifth Avenue divides Manhattan into east and west sides. Street addresses increase with their distance from Fifth Avenue, usually by 100 per block. Twenty north-south blocks equal a mile and street numbers increase as you go uptown.

NYC Essentials

Getting Here Airports There are seven airports within 30 to 90 minutes of Midtown Manhattan. Three closest to the City are JFK, LaGuardia and Newark. Transportation between airports and New York City is available via several options: taxi, bus, private car and MTA’s New York City Transit system. There are light-rail AirTrains at JFK and Newark, which provide quick service to airport parking, car rental companies and mass transit stations connecting to the City’s five boroughs.

Riders can choose a single-ride, multi-ride or an unlimited-ride MetroCard. If you purchase a single-ride card, the fare is $2.75 but if you purchase multiple rides on one card, the fare drops to $2.50. The unlimited MetroCard is offered at various flat rates and enables users to ride as often as they like within fixed time periods. Added discounts are given for seniors (age 65 and up) and disabled riders. Go to mta.info. (Note: A minimal MTA fare increase is pending in early 2015.)

Subways & Buses

Getting Around The MTA—NYC’s Mass Transit System The best way to get around NYC is through a combination of walking and mass transit. NYC’s subways and buses are inexpensive, operate 24/7, provide a fun way to extend sightseeing and get you where you need to go, fast. Other ways to get around include ferries and even an aerial tramway.

The MetroCard is your pass to NYC’s mass transit system.

Getting an MTA MetroCard is your first step to navigating the City by subway or bus. You can purchase a MetroCard at any subway station from multilingual machines (which accept cash, ATM cards and credit cards) or booth attendants.

Forty-second street is a major transit hub in Midtown Manhattan.

The easiest—and quickest— way to travel through NYC is by subway. Subway trains operate 24/7 and are often much faster than street-level transport. Use the system citywide and transfer at designated stations as many times as you need, so long as you don’t exit the system through a turnstile. You can even transfer for free from bus to subway or vice versa within two hours of first swiping your MetroCard. Subway trains travel both above- and underground. Uptown trains head north; downtown trains head south; and crosstown shuttle trains go east/west. Subway stations are generally eight to 10 blocks apart. Pick up a free subway map from a booth attendant or at any Official NYC Information Center. Also visit tripplanner.mta.info for a custom subway/bus route. (Note: Subways do not go to Staten Island from other boroughs.

30 NYC & Company | Official Visitor Guide


NYCThis Essentials is NYC To get there from Manhattan, you need to board the Staten Island Ferry.) The MTA’s Staten Island Railway and buses transport visitors around the island, from the St. George Ferry Terminal in the north to Tottenville in the south. MTA buses are excellent for reaching destinations not convenient to a subway stop. Local City buses accept MetroCards as well as exact coin change (select express bus fares must be paid before boarding the bus at a bus station machine). As with the subway system, riders may pay for a single ride, a multi-ride card or use an unlimited card (on local buses) to ride any distance until the end of the route. Express buses cost $6. Buses also operate 24/7 (there may be exceptions in more remote areas of the City). Waiting times vary, but usually are 10–20 minutes depending on time of day. While slow when there’s traffic, buses are great for sightseeing.

Bus stops are on alternating blocks on avenue routes and on every block on crosstown routes. Late at night, from 11pm to 5am, Request-a-Stop bus service allows riders to disembark anywhere the driver can safely stop. Simply inform the bus driver in advance where you want to get off.

Taxicabs

NYC’s famous yellow fleet.

NYC’s licensed, taxicabs operate 24 hours, provide door-to-door service and accept cash or credit cards. Yellow taxis are commonly seen throughout Manhattan and often make trips to other boroughs

and states. NYC’s new applegreen Boro Taxis only serve the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island plus northern Manhattan (above west 110th and east 96th). To hail a taxicab, stand at any curb and look for an illuminated white number on top. Off-duty cabs display the illuminated words “Off Duty” on the same sign. Board and exit a cab curbside. At your hotel, the doorman can hail a cab for you (a $1 tip is customary for this service). There is a minimum taxi meter fare of $3, and prices increase based on the distance and duration of the trip (assume prices are higher during peak rush-hour traffic). A variety of surcharges apply above the meter price and drivers appreciate a 15%–20%

gratuity at the end of a trip. Bridge and tunnel tolls are extra (and not included in the taxi’s metered fare).

Other Travel Modes Walking and public transit are easy ways to get around, but you can also travel by bike, pedicab, ferry or even tramway. Manhattan is home to an extensive ferry system, great for sightseeing and taking you uptown and downtown, as well as across NYC’s rivers. The Staten Island Ferry connects Manhattan and Staten Island, while the East River Ferry links Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Governors Island.

Grand Central Terminal is a major train station and an architectural landmark.

Transportation

Transportation Getting to New York City is simple. If you’re arriving by plane, there are three major airports that are less than an hour away. Once you’re here, traveling around the City is just as easy, since transportation options include buses, taxis and subways that run 24/7. The fastest and most energy-efficient way to travel anywhere in the five boroughs is the subway. Buses, cabs and ferries are also great options for scenic rides through the bustling city. If you want to take in the sights at a more leisurely pace, layer up and let your feet lead the way. For a bird’s-eye view of the City, try a helicopter ride. Pedi cabs, limos and even a tram are transportation options. Read on for detailed information on how to get around the City. nycgo.com/transportation

If you’d rather get into the game yourself, there are ample opportunities to jog, swim, ice-skate, rock climb and cycle citywide. And if you’re looking to unwind, NYC’s spas can help you relax and recharge. Read on for details. nycgo.com/sports
