Getting Around New York City is served by a great mass transit system consisting of miles of subway track and bus routes that serve some 7.
A free subway map can be picked up at a manned ticket booth is any subway station. Because the subway can be a little intimidating the first time you ride here are a few tips for your trip: Know the difference between local and express. Express trains don't make all stops. Read the signs. When transferring trains signs will point you in the right direction. When ascending or descending stairs or an escalator, stay to the right.
Be ready to exit. During rush hour the trains can be very full. Don't decide at the last moment you need to get off.
Know the stop before and after the one you want. This will help you prepare and also serves as a backstop if you happen to miss your stop. When getting on a train, do not stand in front of the doors. Stand to the side and let people off before you board.
Trust me it's quicker. This just slows down the people who know where they are going. Knowing the layout of Manhattan streets and avenues can aide your subway exit. Many exits are marked with the intersection and the side of the street it will come up on. Not only will this aid you in using the right exit but you won't have to ask for directions.

Yellow cabs are well regulated and rides will always be metered. Again, a few tips: Be clear on where you want to go. The drivers may not know the name of the restaurant so give an intersection or street with cross streets. For example, if you're headed to Katz's Delicatessen for some pastrami on rye and a glimpse of the table from that famous scene in 'When Harry met Sally' you can ask your cab driver to drop you at Houston pronounced HOW-stun, not like that city in Texas and Ludlow.
Available cabs will have the number on the top of the cab illuminated. If it is extinguished it is occupied and if the outer lights are on the driver is off duty.
