After arriving at JFK with my sister, we got a taxi to our hotel and decided to quiz the driver on the journey. He was really friendly and helpful. We asked him about the tourist attractions, places to eat/drink, if public transport was good, where I could shop, what his recommendations were and if there was anything we needed to know such as the smoking laws and jay-walking.
I always try to have a chat with my taxi driver when I in a place or country or state I don't know. These people live and work there day in, day out. Who better knows the place?
The skyscrapers are breath-taking and some of the buildings are inspiring.
We did a lot of exploring on foot and I remember saying to my sister to hold onto me as I wanted to look at the buildings while walking!! They are magnificent structures and some have wonderful carvings and fancy facades.
We did a few tours in our time here. Read about what we did in the tips and reviews connected to this page.
