WEATHER

Autumn
In autumn the average high temperature is
around 15.5C to 21.1C (60F to 70F) and
the leaves begin to fall. The nights are cooler
and the daytime temperature is perfect for
exploring the city. During autumn, the city
enjoys an average of 7.5 hours per day of
sunlight.

Winter
Naturally, New York grows cold in winter,
but it is also fairly dry. The temperatures
range from between -5C and 3C (23F
and 37.4F) and the city enjoys roughly 5.5
hours of daylight, rising closer to 6 hours in
January and February. Snow in the city is
not uncommon.

Spring
Say goodbye to the colder temperatures of
wintertime New York as spring ushers in
milder temperatures of between 5C and
15C (41F and 59F). The light starts to hold
for an average of 8 hours per day, increasing
to as many as 10 as spring rolls on.

Summer
Weather-wise temperatures hover between
20C and 29C (68F and 84F), with
average daily highs hitting between 24C
and 27C (75.2F to 80.6F). In June and
July the days are long, with approximately
11 hours of sunlight, and August also boasts
around 10 hours. Rainfall is minimal in this
warm season.
BASICS

MONEY

The US Dollar is the currency used in


NYC. You may find the rate for buying
dollars is better once you arrive. Its
possible to change money at an ATM,
bank or currency exchange office. Tipping
between 10% - 20% is customary when
you eat out in NYC, while tipping a dollar to
your bar tender is also standard. Note that
surcharges and taxes may apply for taxi
services.
BASICS

Transport
New York is well connected. You can be too, since
this section offers information on the different
modes of transport in the city, from public mass
transit transport to private services. The main
transportation network is the Metropolitan Transport
Authority (MTA). It provides subway, bus and railroad
transportation.

TRANSPORT

TAXIS

An official NYC yellow taxi cab calculates


fares based on distance and time, plus tips
and tolls, and uses a meter. Taxis charge
$0.50 per 1/5 of a mile (or per 60 seconds in
slow or non-moving traffic). Travel between
4.00 pm and 8.00 pm adds $1.00 to your
fare on weekdays (except holidays), and
travel between 8.00 pm and 6.00 am a
smaller surcharge of $0.50 regardless of the
day. Private car services are also available in
New York City. Dial 7 Car and Limo Service,
Carmel Super Save, Ozo Car Service and
Allstate Car and Limo Service are all good
options.
TRANSPORT

SUBWAYS

A ride on the NYC subway costs $2.75 with


a MetroCard, whereas a Single Ride ticket
will cost you $3.00. You can buy Unlimited
MetroCards for either 7 or 30 days, which
save you money if you are staying for
at least a week, enabling unlimited bus
and subway travel (with the exception of
Express, PATH and AirTrain). A Pay-Per-Ride
MetroCard needs to be loaded with credit.

Major stations include the Howard Beach


station and the Sutphin Boulevard station,
since both offer connections to JFK Airport.
There are also stops at some of the citys
main attractions such as Times Square and
other famous places like Wall Street.
TRANSPORT

BUSES

When you get on the bus make sure


you have the correct change: $2.75, with
MetroCard, or $3.00 for a Single Ride ticket
(this ticket is only sold at vending machines).
If you pay with MetroCard, insert the card
into the fare box and it will automatically
deduct the fare.

If youve paid with coins on buses with


intersecting routes, you can ask the driver
for a transfer card and transfer free between
the routes. MetroCard also enables free
transfer between local buses and the
subway. The time valid for the transfer is two
hours from when you paid your fare.
TRANSPORT

TRAMS

The Roosevelt Island Tram is an aerial


tram that connects Roosevelt Island with
the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The
Manhattan station is on 60th Street and
Second Avenue. From Sunday to Thursday it
runs from 6.00 am to 2.20 am, and on Friday
and Saturday from 6.00 am to 3.30 am.

The fare is the same as the New York City


subway at $2.75 per ride. The tram uses
the same MetroCard system as the MTA,
and children under 44 inches (36) can ride
for free if theyre with a fare-paying adult.
The operators recommend purchasing
MetroCards from staffed MTA booths at any
subway station.
TRANSPORT

BICYCLE

Cycling is allowed on all main and local


streets, but not on the pavement, and you
must ride your bike in marked paths and
lanes where available. Make sure your bike
has a front light, a tail light and a bell. Its a
legal requirement to stop at red lights and
stop signs, just like you would in the car.

The city has a bike sharing system, Citi Bike,


which allows you to collect up and deposit
bikes at various docking points around New
York. One of the best places to cycle is
Central Park, and you can also hire bikes
here from Central Park Cycle Hire. Why not
go on a tour?

Airports and Airport Transfers


In this section we provide you with information about
New Yorks major airports and how you can transfer

subway, taxi or private car weve got it covered
for you!

AIRPORTS & TRANSFERS

John F. Kennedy (JFK)


Its hard to imagine that John F. Kennedy
International Airport (JFK) was once a golf course,
and original plans suggested it would only cover
1,000 acres. Work began on the site in April 1942
and today the airport stands at 4,930 acres 880
acres of this is occupied by the Central Terminal.
JFK has been accommodating international flights
since July 1948.

Situated 15 miles from mid Manhattan in Queens,


the airport was originally called the Idlewild Airport.
In memory of the late 35th President of the United
States, it was renamed the John F. Kennedy
International Airport in 1963. It is now as charismatic
as JFK himself, with six terminals accommodating
flights for more than 80 airlines and a whopping
125 gates serving the terminals.

Terminals feature an array of places to eat and


drink, whether youre looking for a casual coffee
to perk yourself up for early morning travel, or
something more filling for an evening flight. Theres
even a caviar house in Terminal 4! The terminals
also feature stylish shops like Mont Blanc so you
can pen elegant postcards from your destination, or
Swarovski so you can pick up the finest jewellery.
30 minutes of free Wi-Fi access is available in the
terminals too.

Getting to and from the airport is easy, with


connections to the bus system, subway and Long
Island Rail Road system available at the Jamaica
and Howard Beach stops.

Flying to or from JFK International Airport is an


experience.

TAXIS

You can take a yellow taxi from JFK


International Airport and, depending on the
destination and time of day, you may have
to pay a surcharge. A trip from the airport to
Manhattan is generally charged at a $52 flat
rate, plus tolls and tips (tipping is important
in New York!). If the peak travel surcharge
applies it costs $1 between 4.00 pm and
8.00 pm, and $0.50 between 8.00 pm and
6.00 am.

You can also take a private cab to and from


the airport with firms like New Golden Horse
Car Service or Allstate Private Car and
Limousine. Separate rates may apply.
JFK

SUBWAY / BUS

Even in a huge city like New York, taking


public transport is straightforward. If youre
catching the subway to or from Lower
Manhattan to the airport, you can take
the MTA NYC Transit A train and stop at
the Howard Beach / JFK Airport station. If
your port of call is Midtown Manhattan, or
from there to the airport, the E train is the
route to take. Get off at Sutphin Boulevard,
Archer Avenue, or JFK Airport station as
appropriate.

Catching the bus is even easier. The Q3


and Q10 run to Queens, and the B15
goes to East New York. There are subway
connections on all of the routes.
JFK

TRAIN / AIRTRAIN

Running 24 hours a day, the AirTrain and


other trains make it easy to get to and from
New York City. The AirTrain stops at each
of the terminal buildings plus other facilities
around the airport, like the car parks.

The train connects with the Jamaica Station


MTA NYC subway E train, which will take
you to Mid and Upper Manhattan, and at
the same station you can catch the Transit J
or A Subway for travel to southern Queens.
You can also climb aboard the Transit
A subway to Lower Manhattan from the
Howard Beach Station.

Much quicker is the Long Island Rail Road


connection at Jamaica Station to Manhattan
Penn Station. This takes less time at 35
minutes, but costs more at $15.
AIRPORTS & TRANSFERS

La Guardia Airport
Sitting eight miles from Midtown Manhattan in the
borough of Queens, La Guardia is one of the three
major airports in New York and it began life as an
amusement park before being transformed into a
private airfield in 1929. Taken over by New York
City in 1937 and then developed further, the airport
reopened in 1939 as New York Municipal Airport
La Guardia Field.

Today the airport covers 680 acres, has space for


up to 72 aircraft gates and deals with more than 25
million passengers per year. The airport has four
main terminal buildings A, B, C and D and two
main runways. Each of these runways is 7,000 feet
long by 150 feet wide.

The original terminal, terminal A, had international


flights on flying boats back in the 1940s, and the
Marine Air terminal was officially designated an
historic landmark in 1995. Terminal B, which opened
to the public in 1964, serves the majority of the
scheduled domestic airlines at the airport, whereas
Terminal C has a shuttle section for passengers
on hourly flights to Boston and Washington D.C.
Meanwhile, Terminal D was given a revamp in the
last couple of years.

Complimentary 30 minute Wi-Fi service is available


throughout the terminals. There are plenty of places
to eat at the terminals too, with fast-food favourites
such as Dunkin Donuts and healthier options like
Healthy Gourmet. The airport also provides you with
opportunities for a spot of clothes shopping in shops
like Desigual and Lacoste.

A yellow cab trip to Lower, Mid or Upper


Manhattan will cost you between $25 and
$37. If you travel between 4.00 pm and 8.00
pm on weekdays youll generally have to pay
a $1 surcharge. Trips between 8.00 pm and
6.00 pm incur a surcharge of $0.50. Check
the meter when you get into your cab; it
should start at $3.00.
LGA

BUS / SUBWAY

M60 takes you to Upper Manhattan via
Queens. Popular connections are the N and
Q subway trains at Hoyt Avenue/31st Street;

AIRPORTS & TRANSFERS

Newark (EWR)
Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) has a
proud history behind it and it has seen numerous
improvements throughout the years. The airport is
just 14 miles from Manhattan and it plays a crucial
part in the New YorkNew Jersey area. Crossing
from Newark into Elizabeth, the airport opened in
1928 and it is the oldest airfield in the US. It also
bears the distinction of being the site of the USs first
commercial airline terminal.

Newark Liberty International Airport has three main


terminals: A, B and C. The oval central terminal
consists of 425 acres (originally, the airport itself was
built on a mere 68 acres of marshland). Terminal B
was expanded from a two level terminal to a three
level one. This is also true of Terminal C, which has
two departure levels.

Getting to and from the airport isnt a problem, since


there is an AirTrain Newark service, which connects
from the airport with NJ Transit services to New
York and New Jersey. This AirTrain also calls in at
various stops around the airport, making it easy to
get from terminal to terminal, or even to the car park
or an airport hotel. Taxis, private car services and an
express bus service are also available to and from
the airport to New York City.

There are food courts in both terminals A and B, and


eateries near the different gates in terminal C, which
include sushi bars, steakhouses and Starbucks. You
can also access WiFi for 30 minutes free of charge.

Tips for international travelers

and youre sure to explore the city on foot!
2. Arrive at the Metropolitan Museum and the
Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) early. They can
retain your interest all day.
3. If youre going to use the subway a lot, purchase
a MetroCard Unlimited for limitless rides on the
subway until midnight.
4. Be mindful of the space around you. Dont stop

5. Always carry your passport with you. Youre
subject to the laws of the state and must be able
to prove you have permission to enter and leave
it. When planning to travel to New York, check
entry requirements online, or with your nearest
embassy or consulate.
6. Buy a New York Pass for one-time entry to more
than 80 attractions and queue jumping on
arrival!
7. Pushed for time? Take a tour on the hop-on, hop-
off bus and see Manhattan in a day!
8. You can stay connected and still appreciate
nature in New York. Several public parks,
including Central Park, offer free WiFi!
9. Ask for the cross streets when getting directions.
This makes it much easier to find your
destination.
10. If you are visiting Staten Island, take the ferry
from Lower Manhattan and dont worry about the
fare: its free!

LOS AMIGOS
Located on 2273 31st, Long Island City,
NY 11105

This is a low-key Mexican gem. In my


humble opinion, Los Amigos serve the best
chicken enchiladas in NY state! I like it in
salsa verde which means green sauce. You
can choose red sauce if you want it extra
spicy. They also serve a delicious michelada
which is beer (your favorite) poured into a
glass filled with hot sauce! My dream in a
mug. They also serve delicious beef nachos
which come with chunky avocado pieces.
Viva mexico!

TUCK SHOP

This is an Australian underground pie shop


with locations on 1st Street and Chelsea

or on the go. My favorite is the chili pie.
Although there is no meat inside this pie, its
very filling with a nice spicy kick. If you need

AMPLE HILLS CREAMERY


305 Nevins street, Brooklyn, NY 11215

This is not your typical ice cream shop.


I visited this shop a few weeks ago and
couldnt get enough of it! The shop has a
nice play area for kids, a rooftop lounging
area where you can hang with friends late
at night, eating ice cream and gazing at the
stars. The ice cream flavors are all unique
and made right on the premises. They have
a glass window where you can see how the
process works for yourself. Treat yourself!

THE MUSEUM AT FIT


Seventh Avenue at 27 Street New York, NY

Describing itself as the most fashionable


museum in New York City, the Museum

MARTINIS & MANICURES


231 E 14th St, New York, NY

Beauty Bar is a retro-salon turned saloon


in the East Village where $10 will buy you
both a manicure and a martini. This eclectic
beauty saloon has a real kitsch vibe and
still makes use of sixties chrome-domed
hair dryers under which blue-haired ladies
were groomed and gossiped for decades.
Obviously you have to be over 21 for this
martinis & manicures night - I gather it is
a popular night for bachelorette and girly
birthday parties! Go on a Wednesday or
Sunday night and youll also get a free
comedy show.

Located in the middle of Central Park, New


York, Strawberry Fields is a living memorial
to Beatles great John Lennon. It features a
black and white mosaic that was presented
as a gift by the city of Naples. Although the
memorial derives its name from the song
Strawberry Fields Forever, the Greco-
Roman mosaic features the lyrics to the
song Imagine. This is a dedicated quiet
zone in the park. In the summer, the area
is surrounded by colourful flowers. Along a
path is a plaque that lists 121 countries that

stretches from Houston Street to 14th Street,
and between Fourth Avenue (then the Bowery)

Brownstones covered in ivy and Federal-


style homes dot Greenwich Village, one
of the loveliest areas in New York. From
the funky, bohemian shops to sidewalk
cafes, craft stores and organic bakeries,
taking a stroll around Greenwich Village
is a unique experience. Once the home
of writers and artists as Edgar Allen Poe,
Henry James and Jackson Pollock, this
upscale area is still infused with a bohemian
vibe. In Washington Square Park, you
can see a majestic arch that rises over its
entrance way. You can also see where Bette

YOGA CLASS AT Y7
240 Kent Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249

New York City has no shortage of yoga


studios and they all use sound in different
ways, from the power of silence, the sacred
chant, or an intertwining of popular and
Indian music. But there are no yoga studios
that use music quite like Y7: with locations
in SoHo, Flatiron and Williamsburg, Y7
is emphatic that hip-hop and yoga can
complement each other. Although hip-hop
music can make it into almost any class,
Hip-Hop Wednesdays and Sundays turn
the volume way up on heavy beats and
rap freestyles in a way that (sometimes
surprisingly) pushes your yoga practice even
further.

Commuting on the New York City subway

buskers singing acoustic covers on the
platform, it can be a veritable concert almost
anywhere you go. But the most reliable
place for the best music is in the heart of
the Union Square subway station, located
on the uppermost level between the stairs
to the NQR uptown and downtown tracks.
From a full brass band to an 11-year-old
piano player prodigy, you can always count
on overhearing something that will make you

LAVO NYC
39 E 58th St, New York, NY 10022

Get your best outfit on and be prepared for


some photo ops (since you might run into
a few celebrities) Lavo NYC in the midtown
east neighborhood. The interior is classy
and the space itself is beautiful, upscale and
very chic, with several crystal chandeliers.
The tables are large, (at least 6 to 10 people
can fit) and all face the DJ booth, providing
a great view of the music set. The VIP tables
have cool hidden storage for ladies to put
away their clutches. And the music itself is
diverse: rap, house and even remixes of old
hits they play it all!

YOGA CLASS AT Y7

New York City has no shortage of yoga


studios and they all use sound in different
ways, from the power of silence, the sacred
chant, or an intertwining of popular and
Indian music. But there are no yoga studios
that use music quite like Y7: with locations
in SoHo, Flatiron and Williamsburg, Y7
is emphatic that hip-hop and yoga can
complement each other. Although hip-hop
music can make it into almost any class,
Hip-Hop Wednesdays and Sundays turn
the volume way up on heavy beats and
rap freestyles in a way that (sometimes
surprisingly) pushes your yoga practice even
further.

LOS AMIGOS
Located on 2273 31st, Long Island City,
NY 11105

This is a low-key Mexican gem. In my


humble opinion, Los Amigos serve the best
chicken enchiladas in NY state! I like it in
salsa verde which means green sauce. You
can choose red sauce if you want it extra
spicy. They also serve a delicious michelada
which is beer (your favorite) poured into a
glass filled with hot sauce! My dream in a
mug. They also serve delicious beef nachos
which come with chunky avocado pieces.
Viva mexico!
