I am going to be regularly updating this page with transportation around New York City. There are so many ways to get around – the subway, yellow cabs, on foot, and much more. In a way, the way in which you move around the city defines your experience in it.
Do you brave the rainy weather on foot, or suck it up and pay for a cab?
This is a composite – I overlaid two images of the Staten Island Ferry as it passed by. The fare has ranged from 5¢ to 50¢, but was eliminated in 1997. I always recommend the ride for tourists, as you get magnificent views of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.
Another underrated option is the Roosevelt Island Tramway – shortly famous after being featured in the 2002 Spider-man movie. It accepts Metrocards and offers stunning views of the East Side of Manhattan, as well as Queens.
