The Subway; the easiest way to explore New York!
You don’t need your car in New York or better you don’t want to have your car with you in New York. Parking costs are very high and the city has a good working subway system. If you want to explore New York; take a subway to where you want to go and walk from there back. For example, we traveled with the subway to Battery Park and from there we walked back to our hotel.
I love to watch people in the subway. Some are reading, some are listening to music and some (just like me) are only sitting waiting to get off. Every entrance is different. You’ll notice that the entrance change in some neighborhoods. The entrance at Central Park is elegant, while a subway entrance at Times Square is full of lights.
About the fares:
The fare for a subway (or local bus) costs $2
You can also buy a Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard
With this card you can buy as many rides you want. For example buy 12 trips for the price of 10. You get free transfer between subway and bus.
Than there is the 7-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard
You can buy the card for $24. The card is good for unlimited subway and bus rides, 7 days from the first day of use.
