New York City offers an array of attractions, from Broadway musicals to trendy restaurants. However, driving in the city can be challenging. Fortunately, living near a subway station makes getting around a breeze.
To ride the subway, simply obtain a refillable MetroCard from a station booth or vending machine. The subway system has multiple lines designated by color, and the MTA TripPlanner+ or apps like iTrans NYC and NYC Subway Times can help plan your exact itinerary.
When riding the subway, it’s important to be mindful of the rules. Take off backpacks and bulky bags upon entering the train, and be courteous when holding onto poles designed for multiple passengers. Priority seating is reserved for pregnant women, elderly, and disabled individuals.
Choosing an apartment near a subway station offers convenience and accessibility to the city’s offerings. For example, The Wellesley is only a block away from the 72 Street Subway, while Carlton Towers is two blocks from the Lexington Avenue-63 Street Subway Stop. The Town House and Dryden East luxury apartments are also conveniently located near the renowned Grand Central Terminal.
Don’t let city traffic deter you from experiencing the best of NYC. Embrace the subway as an efficient mode of transportation to explore everything the city has to offer from your conveniently located apartment.
