10 NYC Travel Tips Nobody Talks About ! … 🤐


What’s up Members of the Barrio It’s Jon, coming to you from Tribeca And we’ve made many videos on this channel About New York City Travel Tips But a lot of that stuff was pretty generic About not crowding the sidewalk About wearing comfortable shoes Stuff like that Today, we’re taking it one step further I”m going to be sharing 10 New York City Travel Tips That nobody talks about Guys make sure to stay tuned til the end of the video The last tip is really important And check out our other New York City playlists All linked down below in the description Here we go This is an insider tip That most New Yorkers don’t even know about So when a conductor is pulling up to any subway station They look up for something called the indication board Or the zebra board It’s a black and white striped wood block It’s either going to be next to the platform Or against the wall Find that block And then wait for the train to pull up The conductor is going to point at it Which mean they’re going to be right there for you to talk to Ask them if your train is going to times square? And they are definitley going to help you out In fact, in this case right here The conductor when we stopped at Canal Street Jumped out of her booth And told me this is the right stop Absolutely incredible For New York City They are so friendly And an insider tip If you’re a girl taking the train late at night And you want to make sure that you’re right by the conductor Stand underneath that board And board the subway car where the conductor is going to be sitting Really good stuff And also a shoutout to my friend Evan A native New Yorker Who told me about this tip And also helped me out a lot with this video This was actually a user submitted comment Which i’m turning into a tip Culchy1971 said Another mistake people make is just having to an NHL or NBA Game in Madison Square Garden You can actually see a better team playing in the Barclays Across the Brooklyn Bridge For half the price All super easy to get to As well And the metro stop is right at the stadium This is an excellent point Madison Square Garden is really amazing It’s called the World’s Most Famous arena For good reason But the knicks stink If you just want to come to New York To see a sporting event I’m a Knicks fan But they are horrible And tickets are a lot more expensive To see a game at the garden Then seeing the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center Ditto for the New York Rangers If you want to see the New York Islanders who play 20 games in Brooklyn At the Barclays Center Those NHL tickets are going to be a lot cheaper And if your favorite team is coming to New York Normally they’re going to play a game at the Garden And then they’re going to play another game at the Barclays Center I promise you prices will be cheaper If you’re willing to go to the Barclays Center If you’re dead set on going to the Garden I’m not going to stop you You are just going to be spending more money And this tip is also useful for concerts If Elton John comes through New York City The tickets at the Garden on the secondary market on Stubhub.com Are going to be a lot more Then going to Brooklyn Another good point There is a third arena in the New York Metro area In Newark It’s called the Prudential Center The New Jersey Devils NHL team plays there It’s just a 20 minute train ride From Penn Station In Midtown Manhattan And you can also see concerts cheaper there as well So this tip Could save you quite a bit of money Small New York City restaurants That are very busy And you can see a line forming for people to get seats You have to be aware of this I’m going to give you an example I was at a Thai restaurant a few nights ago with a friend There was about 8 people standing outside This place had about 10 tables And mid way through our meal Just as we were getting close to finishing The waiter arrived with a check This is a very subtle New York thing It means guys we’re busy, if you’re not going to order anything else Just make sure you pay when you’re done And wrap it up I think that it would be considered rude If there’s a huge line waiting outside And you’re not ordering anything Your’e just sitting and chatting And they need that table The restaurant needs the table to make more money Other customers are waiting And if you’re not ordering anything You should consider getting up After you pay your bill And going for dessert somewhere else Or going to a bar Because not only are you going to be exploring another place in New York But you’re also being very courteous to other people around you This is a tip I don’t hear a lot of people talking about But you’ll definitley see it in New York In smaller, crowded restaurants This is another comment from one of you guys out there That spurned this tip Jonathan Martine wrote The biggest mistake was for sure bringing a car into the city The entire process of driving through hours of traffic on 34th street, spending way to much on parking Trying not to hit people And other cars was definitley a lesson learned By the way love your videos Feature this comment Your wish is my command, your comment just got featured And while this is something that people talk about I decided to throw it onto this video Because I want to re-iterate it so much If you come to New York City I don’t recommend brining your car I don’t recommend renting a car for a lot of reasons The first one.. parking costs If you’re staying at a hotel in Midtown Parking is going to cost you 50 dollars or more per night What could you do with those 50 dollars that you’re not spending on parking your car? I don’t know, a lot of things Second Traffic Traffic can be horrendous Especially in Manhattan Especially during the day Maybe it’s not as bad as Los Angeles But still.. You don’t want to deal with it And third If you’re going to be parking the car , throughout the city There are so many restrictions everywhere It is tough to find a spot And let me tell you as someone whose had their car towed before There is nothing worse Than getting there And thinking your car got stolen Well the city did kind of steal it But anyway You do not want to get your car towed You don’t want to deal with all the parking issues of New York City Believe me Leave your car at home Don’t put love locks on city bridges This originated in Europe And you know what I’m talking about Those locks that have a couples name.. and they are chained onto a lot of famous land marks in New York City Specifically the Brooklyn Bridge Well let me tell you They are not good for New York The Brooklyn Bridge, is very old All of those locks, are weighing down on it In fact, the department of transportation had to take care of this themselves Up until 2013 There was a statistic.. They removed 34,000 locks from the Brooklyn Bridge Which cost the city 100,000 dollars Per year to do Let that sink in for a second Gentleman if you want to tell her you love her forever Put a ring on it Because that lock is going to get cut down It’s not doing the city any favors They even had reports about the locks were breaking.. some of the chains down It was landing on the Brooklyn Bridge They had to divert traffic It’s no good And for that matter, don’t litter on the bridge Don’t leave anything on the bridge Respect the city Look I get it Photography and Instagram are a big thing now when you travel But just remember There are lot of people that live in New York City And there’s beginning to be problems With people taking photos for Instagram at certain locations Point number 1 The joker stairs In the Bronx There have been a lot of complaints from local residents up there About people just coming to the stairs To take pictures Well guess what There are folks that live there And they take those stairs every single day They’re getting it blocked By people taking photos For the gram So what I’m telling you Is that if you’re going to be taking Instagram photos in popular locations Where there’s going to be local New Yorkers Just walking by going to work Be very aware of that Another great example.. is the Brooklyn Bridge If you’re standing in the bike lane And locals are biking to and from Getting to Manhattan Getting to Brooklyn You are going to annoy them a lot So wherever you decide to take photos In this city Always be aware of your surroundings This is a super common mistake that travelers to New York City make Involving buying tickets for Broadway Or sporting events At to high of a cost online Let’s say you google Broadway Tickets Some of the first results to pop up Are not going to be the official box office websites It’s going to be something like.. Tickets-Center.com And if you don’t read the website closely And few do You won’t see that it is not the official re-seller And that tickets could be sold at way higher than face value A lot of these websites in fact will sell tickets That are being sold for the normal price On the box office website For 2 times, 3 times the cost If you want to find the official website of any box office On broadway I’m putting the link down below right here It’s Broadway .org/shows Every single show on Broadway Is listed there With the correct link I don’t know why so many young people When they visit the city Obsess over going to the clubs in Meatpacking District I honestly think that is the last place you would actually find local New Yorkers Going out Paying a ton of money to get bottles And have all those issues with doormen And lines We’ve covered so many different things on this channel We’ve covered rooftop bars We’ve covered speakeasy bars One thing we haven’t talked to much about Hint hint video coming Breweries in Long Island City But whatever your taste is Don’t feel like New York City nightlife just revolves around Nightclubs In one area.. Meatpacking Trust me there’s so much more to it There’s Hookah Bars There’s wine bars There’s even bars that specialize in Mocktails Non-alcoholic drinks Seriously When you visit New York Make sure you don’t limit yourself I’ll start by saying that I personally will not rent a Citibike just to go around most of the Manhattan streets I will happily ride it on the Hudson River Bikepath On the east river bike path In Central Park But I feel like to many tourists who aren’t that confident about their biking abilities.. Or.. think that New York City is like Europe Which has dedicated bike lanes.. where you are absolutely not going to see cars crossing into them Let me tell you Bike riding in New York City Can be a very tricky thing Taxis a lot of times don’t follow traffic laws Other cyclists don’t follow traffic laws If you’re not a very confident cyclist You can easily run into some issues I would just warn you about that Don’t feel like the easiest way to get around New York is to get a Citi Bike Unless you’re absolutely confident in bike riding In some pretty crazy situations In fact, i’m more afraid of people on bikes in New York Than I am afraid of other cars But a lot of times they’ll be going the wrong way I’ve almost been hit by people on bikes multiple times Just something to think about Those attacks hit New York very hard And my own personal story I was in high school Other side of the Hudson River in North Jersey I had people from my school whose parents were killed that day It is such a sensitive issue in New York And the reflecting pools are a very solemn place Something that I absolutely hate to see Are tourists there with selfie sticks Smiling Being very happy In a very solemn place Let’s be honest That memorial needs to be treated like a cemetary You need to show the same respect there that you would show at any kind of Memorial People died there Please, please be aware of that You even sometimes see family members of the victims Coming, leaving flowers Just breaks my heart To see teenagers, smiling and taking fun-looking photos there If you want to take selfies You want to smile a lot Do it in front of One World Trade Don’t do it, at the reflecting pools Tell me down below in the comments What you thought of this list of tips And make sure to check out our other New York City playlists All linked down below, in the description Special thanks to my camera guy Ben Guys thank you so much for watching as always Until next time

  2. The best parking tip I have is parking at staten island and ride the ferry over to south ferry and take subway to wherever you have to go plus it only cost $8 a day to park in the garage

  3. Very good video. 2 main points I want to make. Ive never really understood this thing for standing in line to eat food. Im a New Yorker who is not from an uppermiddle class backround and I personally would rather enjoy my meal in a place that does not rush you. Id want to enjoy mabey a drink after a meal or coffee and enjoy good conversation. I dont care if the place is not crowded. Eating out should be something special and not something to brag about to your friends that you waited in line to eat at the best thai restaurant in the city. My second point is that I too see tourist on the Brooklyn Bridge totally unaware that there is a bike lane and many are commuters going to work. Some of those bikes are going 40 miles an hour, but tourist are staggering over onto the bike lane laughing and taking pictures as if they are still in the small towns they come from and you are correct the bikers get angry they will curse at you and rightly so. Tourist need to be much more aware of their surroundings.

  4. tip one is very important for any memorial site world wide, always hate to see tourist at a vet memorial swimming in the fountain or climbing on the emblems or statues that represent the people being remembered etc.

  5. Seeing is believing when you need someone who can send you money via cash app and PayPal hack just contact +17605433523 hacker Robinson he will serve you the best

  6. Thanks for tip #1. I went to the memorial twice before I moved here and it irked me. I was with a friend who called her dad (firefighter) after finding his best friend's name etched on one of the pools.

  7. Coming over from uk on honeymoon in August. Want to see a Mets game any suggestions..or tips on getting tickets and were to sit in the stand..

  8. Hi Jon, we have just come back from our week in New York. It is an amazing place that never sleeps and they love using the HORN 24 hours a day. People get so hung up on using the taxis or using the subway system. We spent 6 days there and never took any transport of any sort. we walked 64 miles in total and believe me we found a ton of different things to see and many colourful characters. Most tourists won't see this because they are either crammed into a box above ground or crammed into a metal tube below ground. People need to use their feet to explore because there is so much to see. There are many different places to eat and if your walking you can knock those calories on the head and eat as much as you want. I do agree that there were a lot of tourists laughing, joking and taking selfies at the 911 memorial. They have no idea what that place means to a lot of people and you don't have to be a USA citizen to feel the loss. Its sad to see there are so many homeless people living rough but surprisingly not begging you for money. There was one incident where we was standing near a street corner getting our bearings as to which direction to head in when a homeless guy asked if we needed help to get to somewhere. We told him where we wanted to go and he told us exactly which direction to take to get there. He told us to have a good day and he turned around to go. I tapped him on the shoulder and gave him $5, it meant little to me (a few quid) but to him it meant getting summat to eat or a drink. It doesn't hurt to give a little when it can mean a lot to some. We didn't have the best of weather but it didn't matter, we had a wonderful time and we met a ton of interesting characters……….. would we go again ?……. in a New York minute…….. can't beat that New York Cooorrfffeeee 😉 Shame I didn't get to see ya on my travels Jon. Keep up the great vids my friend……… Simon.

  9. One reason I love your videos is because they are so realistic and helpful. Very practical and straight to the point. Keep up the great work

  10. Totally agree with the showing respect at 9/11 memorial, I can’t understand why people would want to take selfies and smile at such a sacred place

  11. I've been watching your channel since January when I started planning my upcoming December trip but this is my FAVORITE video so far for sure because of Tip #1. I have previously visited Manhattan (and had an AWESOME trip) but this time I will be traveling solo vs w/a partner and although I live in a big city and have navigated public transit alone before (locally), I will DEFINITELY take advantage of your tip to travel after dark in the first car with the conductor! Thank you!! <3

  12. So glad that you mentioned showing respect at the 9/11 memorial. We visited in August and I felt very uncomfortable at the people taking happy smiling face selfies at the pools, including some who were almost climbing up on the nameplates to show a better angle, and others, whose dress was extremely inappropriate to be taking family selfies and looking happy. Photos, within reason, but selfies? Why don't people move away a little and show some respect for those who were killed that day?

  13. Great video Jon! I think it's really great that you spoke out about the 9/11 memorial. I feel not many people address this issue. About two years ago my husband confronted a group of tourists at the memorial who were not only taking disrespectful selfies there, but also posing with posters showing the planes hitting the towers, it's sickening and despicable behaviour with no respect for humanity. We live not too far away from the memorial so we walk there a lot and we very often see people weeping at the reflecting pools remembering their loved ones who died that day and they deserve respect ❤️

  14. I am planning from Australia, to visit nyc in the fall 2020. Thanks for tips, especially on how the subway operates. Cheers.

  15. Hi John, I’m in NYC until saturday from London with my sweet half, we love your videos! Do you want to meet one if these days? We can have a drink or a quick chat that would be amazing for us!

  16. I commented about people taking selfies at the 9/11 memorial and in the museum when we were visiting NYC last year. What is wrong with them? Thank you for pointing that out.

  17. Next to the fountains at 9/11 memorial, there are boards saying it's a place that should be treated with respect. Even without reading it, I never thought for a second to smile or joke. Nor was I leaning on the name plates.
    Rest of the tips….well, next time I'm there I'll definitely have them in mind.

  18. I took a selfie with my family around 9/11 pounds.
    Honestly I never thought I was disrespectful. If I've been chocking people, I'm sorry. If we have smiled on the picture it is because we consider ourselves extremely lucky to be still the four together and in no way to be disrespectful.
    Still sorry, we never had bad intension.

    I use Google translate

  19. For tourists wanting to cycle in Central Park–OBSERVE THE RULES. Only go counter-clockwise and STAY IN THE BIKEWAY. The inside lane is reserved for walkers and runners, and I've seen too many close calls because the cyclist isn't paying attention (too busy taking selfies, chatting, riding three abreast, etc). I myself was knocked over by a cyclist not paying attention up Cat Hill while marathon training.

  20. Speaking of NJ sporting arenas, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford hosts both NY football teams, the Giants and the Jets: I'd much rather spend my dough going out to see one of them, even though they're both awful right now, than the Knicks or Rangers at the Garden… just sayin'

  21. I’ve been watching ur videos when they pop up on my reccomended and I just assumed you don’t do NYC tips anymore bc the first video of yours I saw was from like 8 months ago or something. I thought this one was quite old until I saw the joker stairs part so yeah… good to see you are still uploading

  22. Speaking of driving in Manhattan, my lady will hit up restaurants that we buy on Groupon. She’s kinda afraid to use the subway, so we do drive in. And what I’ve learned from working in the boroughs, parking on weekends are so much easier than on weekdays. Just #readthesigns

  23. I am coming to New York in exactly 2 weeks. I will be there from November the 21st to 25th. I was wondering what size coat you think I should bring and what you think the weather will be like at that time.

  24. LA traffic is nothing compared to NY. Lol I only hear horns in LA when you cut someone off, NY it's like they stay on the horn. Jay Walking is not a thing in NY and drivers are crazy! LA traffic is more so on the freeways in my opinion

  25. Thank you for saying have respect for 9/11 gone but not forgotten. I braked my hart to see tourist treat the WTC as just another must do In nyc .

  26. Thank you for the travel tips for NYC. The good thing about The Big Apple is its public transportation is the best! Don't bring your car to NYC. I will tell my friends next time they will be planning to visit the city. The 9/11 memorial is a sacred place where many people lost their lives on that terrible day. People need to respect that place and not take pictures or laugh or talk loud. They should show respect for the memorial and the site! Again I want to thank you for the information and the video! Robert from Hialeah Florida.

  27. I’ve got a suggestion for a video if you haven’t already done one I ran across a website that you can buy tickets for all the attractions in New York and wanted to get your input about that and possibly what website you would recommend for buying tickets all at once for all the attractions

  28. My car got towed in New Orleans last week. That free parking outside the French Quarter is nice, but the smallest "bus stop" signs in the world. Lol.

  29. Great tips! i go to nyc often and always drive there from Toronto and park. I recommend using the app parkopedia or spothero…you can get 24 hour parking for only $20 which is way better then getting ripped of by the hotels who often charge $50-70 per night.Last time i went i parked right near central park and paid $30 per night (extra $10 per night cause i was driving a pickup truck).

  30. Gosh I'm so nervous for my trip to NYC in 5 days. Thank you for the subway tip! I'm watching all your videos. Def saved money by staying in Queens. I did buy inexpensive tix to the met opera I'm stoked

  31. I honestly don't understand how could smile and take selfies at the 9/11 memorial. To me as perfect stranger to the city that would make me so angery, to some people you are dishonoring their loved ones and how they passed away. I hope one day I could go there and pay my respects.

  32. Thanks for your videos. Always visit and the places you suggest I try to get to them eventually. I can't and don't drive so taking the subway and bus us just right for me. I love the city for that one thing alone. ANYONE can live and get around in NYC. I have a sight problem but see well enough to navigate the transit system. It makes a person very independent.

    Keep up the good work

  33. Hey great video! But I have a question I’m flying into New York with my family and we’re only staying for a small amount of time and want to check where would be a good place to store our luggage so we can browse through the city and the. take a bus to our destination?

  34. Cheers for the NYC stuff 👍. I’m visiting again in April and it’s been good confirming the things we did wrong last time 🙄😆. Wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments towards the ‘gram attitude at the memorial, some of the tourist mentality we saw made was disgraceful 😡

  35. 100% totally agree with your point on respecting the 9/11 memorial. On our last 2 visits to NY we noticed the total lack of respect shown by so many ppl laughing and taking selfies etc.

  36. Dying laughing about the tow caring comment. Been there (only in a college town instead) ! Awful feeling! Great tips, thanks for sharing!

  37. As far as cars, I have a friend in Staten Island and when I visit NYC that's where my car stays. I'll usually get an unlimited weekly Metro card and walk down to the bus stop and ride into the SI ferry to the city. Non resident tolls are really expensive, but if you want to just take a day and drive around and experience crossing the Brooklyn Bridge by car, expect to pay some expensive tolls, but it's fun just for the experience for the hell of it. The weekly Metro card fits my needs and I recommend getting that for anyone that's going to be spending several days in NY and going out and about, instead of paying as you go and then trying to use your card and there's no money left on it.

  38. People who want to go to a nightclub in the meat packing district don't want to go to a brewery or a wine bar. That's like saying why would you go to the beach when you can go to the lake.

  39. You have a new subscriber here. Your videos are great but I hope you have some subtitles in English or better translations in Spanish. I try my best understanding but I’m sure is a lot Spanish speakers can subscribe to your channel only if you have the translation. Thanks 🙏

  40. Awesome video! Agree with the world trade site, here in Berlin Germany we have a similar issue with the holocaust memorial labyrinth that people sometimes use for fun time photos or as a playground. Great tips, keep them coming, you made my last NY visit.cheers.

  41. Wow I can’t believe how many people have seen people taking selfies at the 9/11 memorial. It makes me so sad that this would even need to be talked about, as you’d think common sense and decency would prevail. Obviously not!
    I’ll be visiting in a couple of weeks and definitely will not be posing for any pictures or smiling.

  42. I have one (as a native) no one mentions PLEASE don’t feed the squirrels in our parks!!! They are all so used to human contact that once your not there they just approach us (somewhat aggressively) and try to steal your food. I have even seen them climb into baby buggies and steal snacks from the tray’s etc… Also they climb up near people eating on a bench at lunchtime and try to get their food. Can’t even have a simple lunch break in the park. Just leave them alone!!!!! You DO NOT need a photo of a squirrel eating a bite of your John’s tourist shop pizza. PLEASE it makes things so much harder for those of us who are with kids and in parks pretty much daily. Also food you may drop is found by other NYC residents (sadly) 🐀Thanks 🗽🐿

  43. The only think i dislike about this is that he talks about "New York" but all he talks about it Manhattan and Brooklyn. What about Queens and the Bronx and Astoria and all the places what make New York there is a lot more places to go in Queen the Manhattan. 🤦🤦 people like "New York" no they don't they like Manhattan

  44. Love your videos. I am a native New Yorker but live in Florida now. We go every year for a girl trip. Use air bnd some years great some years disappointing. Can you do a video on tips using Airbnb? Also I am a experienced cyclist and rented citibikes. What a pain you have to find bike stations every hour to re rent or you get charged big time. I cycle every year in central park. Bike rental places are not in the park but a fews blocks off park. Why?? Thanks

  45. I visited the 9/11 Memorial this past summer and went to the museum afterwards. Seeing people take selfies on the exact place where people lost their lives definitely rubbed me the wrong way, but it (unfortunately) wasn’t the worst thing I saw from tourists there.

    If anyone’s been inside the 9/11 Tribute museum you know that there’s the “In Memoriam” section that’s dedicated to the individuals who lost their lives from the attack; the walls are lined with individual photographs of each person, and there’s also things like touchscreen tablets, personal objects, and audio remembrances from friends and family where you can learn more about each of the victims.

    It’s one of the most emotional parts of the museum, and it’s one of the few sections inside that has a sign EXPLICITLY stating to not take pictures/videos.

    The very first thing I saw walking into that section? A happy tourist couple taking a smiling selfie with the victims pictures as their “backdrop”.

    That was appalling. So grossly insensitive…

  46. These are great tips, love it! I used to live in NYC. I agree about the psycholists, I mean cyclists. IMO they are very dangerously fast and have no sense of driving safely when they are driving near people! They didn't have horns on their bikes and they didn't even say "hey move, I'm coming through." They are absolutely silent. I've had several near misses that I never saw coming until they past literally a couple inches from me. I thank God that I never got hurt. That's one of the things I hated about living there.

  47. Thanks for the subway cardboard tip!!!
    If you allow me, I would add one tip myself that I learn on my second trip: “don’t look like a tourist” if you don’t, you will avoid so much people trying to sell you tickets, tours, the pictures in Times Square, the “budists” asking for money and many people trying to scam tourists…
    the difference between my first and second trip was simple, I left the backpack at the hotel and when i needed directions I tried to look for them while still in some building so all those people don’t spot me…

  48. THANK YOU for mentioning the lack of respect at the memorial. I was there, went to the museum, cried a few times with the overwhelm and sadness – and I was offended to see people acting like it was just a fun touristy thing… Ouch. Excellent video, thank you. (Coming back to NYC for the 4th time in Sept, bringing my sister for her first time, so am going through your NYC vids again. Very helpful, thank you!)

  49. If anyone is going to visit the Statue of Liberty, please do NOT buy tickets from vendors on the streets. You can take the FREE Staten Island Ferry which passes by the Statue ( both going to SI or coming from SI) as the ferry makes it's round trip journey..
    At Castle Clinton ( the brown circular building) inside Battery Park is where one would OFFICIALLY buy tickets for the trip to the Statue and Ellis Island…If you are a City Pass, New York Pass, or New York City Explorer Pass bring your card to the prepaid ticket window in order to get your ferry ticket. Remember, AVOID ALL TICKET VENDORS ON THE STREETS OR IN PARKS …BUY ONLINE OR AT CASTLE CLINTON.

  50. I appreciate the level of respect you have for the city I grew up in, more specifically The Bronx. I feel like most youtubers treat this city like a prop. Looking forward to more of your videos, The Bronx appreciates your service.

  51. Love all your videos! Going there with my mom in March and I can't wait! Ive been to NYC a couple times before, but I'm trying to look for non-touristy things to do this time and your videos have been so helpful!

  52. Wasn't ready for the reflecting pools. Didn't expect to have such an emotional rush as we walked in there. Was totally ok like 10 seconds prior
    I just remembered looking at one name for so long and wondering how many lives that one lady would have affected and them looking up and just seeing the names lists that never seemed to end. I prayed and moved through trying so hard not to lose it. Seeing people caught up in their own staged candid Instagram selfies made me sad. Sad for them they lacked empathy, kindness and respect, instead locked into the goal of a little hit of dopamine for getting an Instagram like. I love taking pictures in NY but a camera was not on my mind there

  53. the best way to get around New York is just walk, if the distance is a bit far, hop on the subway.Walking in all directions is the best way to get a feel for NY, it much more than the popular tourist spots. Walk all around.
