New York

Empire Diner

 

Being in New York Recently I though I would Share a few tips and some great places to eat while you are there. There is so much to do here so you may not get to it all in one visit.

Best way to get from JFK to Manhattan

Use the Air Train from JFK this connects with the Long island railroad (LIRR) at Jamaica station, straight to Penn Station right in the heart of Manhattan. About 35min Total. Air Train is $5, pay at Jamaica station, Long island Railroad depends on times approx. $7.You can buy a combined Air train and LIRR ticket once you arrive at Jamaica station.

See here https://youtu.be/ZFdvy5eYISg

Once in Manhattan 

If you are the for more than 4 Days Buy an Unlimited ride Metro card $30USD as each trip is $2.75 so if you are exploring the city the 7 day Card is much better Value.

If you have time Visit a Gospel Church (amazing), See a Show on Broadway, you can get Half Price tickets at the Time Square Ticket office.

Figuring out Uptown and Downtown,

Uptown Manhattan refers to the area above 59th Street,Upper Manhattan refers to the area above 96th Street,Downtown Manhattan refers to the area below 14th Street,Lower Manhattan refers to the area below Chambers Street,Midtown Manhattan refers to the area between 34th Street and 59th Street.(see Easy)

Eating out. Big Tip (Share the portion sizes are huge)

Street Scene

New York is such a great City for Street Photography,

in an instant there is opportunities to take a Photograph, there is always a character, or something happening that just grabs your attention.

No one really pays much attention to what other people are doing, there are just to busy doing there own thing.
