Below are a series of recommendations that every visitor to this beautiful city should take into account and that will also be very useful to avoid typical inconveniences during your stay:
Plan the transfer from the airport to the city
One of the crucial moments when traveling to New York is organizing transfers. The city has three airports: the largest, JFK; La Guardia, located in Queens; and Newark, in the state of New Jersey. When booking a flight, it is key to verify which airport you will land at, and not rely solely on ticket prices. JFK is often the most convenient option for tourists due to its accessibility via public transportation. In the case of landing at JFK, the subway can be a good option, especially if the flight is not at night, since security can be a problem at those times. Taxis are a quick alternative, although caution should be taken with unauthorized taxis that offer their services at airport exits. A sure way to avoid them is to use apps like Lyft or Uber. Opting for private transportation is also an excellent choice, especially when traveling in a group. Fares start at $105, varying depending on the number of passengers, the airport of origin and the additional services you wish to include.
Create a custom itinerary
One of the central aspects when it comes to New York is the development of effective itineraries that consider distances, climate and the most favorable times to visit certain places. To optimize time and at the same time save money, tourist cards are an excellent alternative to discover the most outstanding attractions of the city. If you choose not to purchase them, it is recommended to purchase tickets for museums, viewpoints and attractions in advance, since, during the high season, the lines are usually long.
To move around the city without complications, it is key to plan your routes and know the estimated arrival time at each place. Using applications such as Google Maps or Citymapper are highly recommended and both offer offline maps, allowing navigation without depending on the Internet connection.
Encourage yourself to use the subway
Although for beginners it can be intimidating due to the complexity of its lines. The New York subway system stands out as an efficient and economical option for travelers,
The ticket costs approximately $2.75, but if your stay in the city is longer than three days, the most convenient option is to purchase the MetroCard, a rechargeable card that offers multiple trips.
Each metro line features different types of trains, identified by letters, numbers and colors. Local trains make stops at all stations, while express trains only stop at the most important ones.
Save on meals
New York City presents one of the most outstanding and extensive gastronomic offers in the world. However, going to restaurants frequently can significantly increase any budget. An excellent alternative is to buy food at Deli’s, which are small stores that offer breakfast, sandwiches and snacks starting at three dollars.
Take advantage of free activities
The city is full of high-end experiences that are completely free. Some of the most recommended are Stroll through Little Island, a small public park with gardens, green areas and panoramic viewpoints, or take the Staten Island ferry to enjoy views of the Statue of Liberty. You can also add to the list visits to places such as the Harry Potter store, which resembles a real museum, The High Line elevated park, the entrance to The Oculus or some museums such as 9/11, which offers free access the Mondays in the afternoon.
In the Big Apple there are also countless museums that are free every day of the week. When putting together your travel itinerary, it is important to know that most of the city’s institutions offer free tickets, or “pay what you wish.”
