10 NYC Travel Tips Nobody Talks About ! … 🤐


What’s up Members of the Barrio It’s Jon, coming to you from Tribeca And we’ve made many videos on this channel About New York City Travel Tips But a lot of that stuff was pretty generic About not crowding the sidewalk About wearing comfortable shoes Stuff like that Today, we’re taking it one step further I”m going to be sharing 10 New York City Travel Tips That nobody talks about Guys make sure to stay tuned til the end of the video The last tip is really important And check out our other New York City playlists All linked down below in the description Here we go This is an insider tip That most New Yorkers don’t even know about So when a conductor is pulling up to any subway station They look up for something called the indication board Or the zebra board It’s a black and white striped wood block It’s either going to be next to the platform Or against the wall Find that block And then wait for the train to pull up The conductor is going to point at it Which mean they’re going to be right there for you to talk to Ask them if your train is going to times square? And they are definitley going to help you out In fact, in this case right here The conductor when we stopped at Canal Street Jumped out of her booth And told me this is the right stop Absolutely incredible For New York City They are so friendly And an insider tip If you’re a girl taking the train late at night And you want to make sure that you’re right by the conductor Stand underneath that board And board the subway car where the conductor is going to be sitting Really good stuff And also a shoutout to my friend Evan A native New Yorker Who told me about this tip And also helped me out a lot with this video This was actually a user submitted comment Which i’m turning into a tip Culchy1971 said Another mistake people make is just having to an NHL or NBA Game in Madison Square Garden You can actually see a better team playing in the Barclays Across the Brooklyn Bridge For half the price All super easy to get to As well And the metro stop is right at the stadium This is an excellent point Madison Square Garden is really amazing It’s called the World’s Most Famous arena For good reason But the knicks stink If you just want to come to New York To see a sporting event I’m a Knicks fan But they are horrible And tickets are a lot more expensive To see a game at the garden Then seeing the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center Ditto for the New York Rangers If you want to see the New York Islanders who play 20 games in Brooklyn At the Barclays Center Those NHL tickets are going to be a lot cheaper And if your favorite team is coming to New York Normally they’re going to play a game at the Garden And then they’re going to play another game at the Barclays Center I promise you prices will be cheaper If you’re willing to go to the Barclays Center If you’re dead set on going to the Garden I’m not going to stop you You are just going to be spending more money And this tip is also useful for concerts If Elton John comes through New York City The tickets at the Garden on the secondary market on Stubhub.com Are going to be a lot more Then going to Brooklyn Another good point There is a third arena in the New York Metro area In Newark It’s called the Prudential Center The New Jersey Devils NHL team plays there It’s just a 20 minute train ride From Penn Station In Midtown Manhattan And you can also see concerts cheaper there as well So this tip Could save you quite a bit of money Small New York City restaurants That are very busy And you can see a line forming for people to get seats You have to be aware of this I’m going to give you an example I was at a Thai restaurant a few nights ago with a friend There was about 8 people standing outside This place had about 10 tables And mid way through our meal Just as we were getting close to finishing The waiter arrived with a check This is a very subtle New York thing It means guys we’re busy, if you’re not going to order anything else Just make sure you pay when you’re done And wrap it up I think that it would be considered rude If there’s a huge line waiting outside And you’re not ordering anything Your’e just sitting and chatting And they need that table The restaurant needs the table to make more money Other customers are waiting And if you’re not ordering anything You should consider getting up After you pay your bill And going for dessert somewhere else Or going to a bar Because not only are you going to be exploring another place in New York But you’re also being very courteous to other people around you This is a tip I don’t hear a lot of people talking about But you’ll definitley see it in New York In smaller, crowded restaurants This is another comment from one of you guys out there That spurned this tip Jonathan Martine wrote The biggest mistake was for sure bringing a car into the city The entire process of driving through hours of traffic on 34th street, spending way to much on parking Trying not to hit people And other cars was definitley a lesson learned By the way love your videos Feature this comment Your wish is my command, your comment just got featured And while this is something that people talk about I decided to throw it onto this video Because I want to re-iterate it so much If you come to New York City I don’t recommend brining your car I don’t recommend renting a car for a lot of reasons The first one.. parking costs If you’re staying at a hotel in Midtown Parking is going to cost you 50 dollars or more per night What could you do with those 50 dollars that you’re not spending on parking your car? I don’t know, a lot of things Second Traffic Traffic can be horrendous Especially in Manhattan Especially during the day Maybe it’s not as bad as Los Angeles But still.. You don’t want to deal with it And third If you’re going to be parking the car , throughout the city There are so many restrictions everywhere It is tough to find a spot And let me tell you as someone whose had their car towed before There is nothing worse Than getting there And thinking your car got stolen Well the city did kind of steal it But anyway You do not want to get your car towed You don’t want to deal with all the parking issues of New York City Believe me Leave your car at home Don’t put love locks on city bridges This originated in Europe And you know what I’m talking about Those locks that have a couples name.. and they are chained onto a lot of famous land marks in New York City Specifically the Brooklyn Bridge Well let me tell you They are not good for New York The Brooklyn Bridge, is very old All of those locks, are weighing down on it In fact, the department of transportation had to take care of this themselves Up until 2013 There was a statistic.. They removed 34,000 locks from the Brooklyn Bridge Which cost the city 100,000 dollars Per year to do Let that sink in for a second Gentleman if you want to tell her you love her forever Put a ring on it Because that lock is going to get cut down It’s not doing the city any favors They even had reports about the locks were breaking.. some of the chains down It was landing on the Brooklyn Bridge They had to divert traffic It’s no good And for that matter, don’t litter on the bridge Don’t leave anything on the bridge Respect the city Look I get it Photography and Instagram are a big thing now when you travel But just remember There are lot of people that live in New York City And there’s beginning to be problems With people taking photos for Instagram at certain locations Point number 1 The joker stairs In the Bronx There have been a lot of complaints from local residents up there About people just coming to the stairs To take pictures Well guess what There are folks that live there And they take those stairs every single day They’re getting it blocked By people taking photos For the gram So what I’m telling you Is that if you’re going to be taking Instagram photos in popular locations Where there’s going to be local New Yorkers Just walking by going to work Be very aware of that Another great example.. is the Brooklyn Bridge If you’re standing in the bike lane And locals are biking to and from Getting to Manhattan Getting to Brooklyn You are going to annoy them a lot So wherever you decide to take photos In this city Always be aware of your surroundings This is a super common mistake that travelers to New York City make Involving buying tickets for Broadway Or sporting events At to high of a cost online Let’s say you google Broadway Tickets Some of the first results to pop up Are not going to be the official box office websites It’s going to be something like.. Tickets-Center.com And if you don’t read the website closely And few do You won’t see that it is not the official re-seller And that tickets could be sold at way higher than face value A lot of these websites in fact will sell tickets That are being sold for the normal price On the box office website For 2 times, 3 times the cost If you want to find the official website of any box office On broadway I’m putting the link down below right here It’s Broadway .org/shows Every single show on Broadway Is listed there With the correct link I don’t know why so many young people When they visit the city Obsess over going to the clubs in Meatpacking District I honestly think that is the last place you would actually find local New Yorkers Going out Paying a ton of money to get bottles And have all those issues with doormen And lines We’ve covered so many different things on this channel We’ve covered rooftop bars We’ve covered speakeasy bars One thing we haven’t talked to much about Hint hint video coming Breweries in Long Island City But whatever your taste is Don’t feel like New York City nightlife just revolves around Nightclubs In one area.. Meatpacking Trust me there’s so much more to it There’s Hookah Bars There’s wine bars There’s even bars that specialize in Mocktails Non-alcoholic drinks Seriously When you visit New York Make sure you don’t limit yourself I’ll start by saying that I personally will not rent a Citibike just to go around most of the Manhattan streets I will happily ride it on the Hudson River Bikepath On the east river bike path In Central Park But I feel like to many tourists who aren’t that confident about their biking abilities.. Or.. think that New York City is like Europe Which has dedicated bike lanes.. where you are absolutely not going to see cars crossing into them Let me tell you Bike riding in New York City Can be a very tricky thing Taxis a lot of times don’t follow traffic laws Other cyclists don’t follow traffic laws If you’re not a very confident cyclist You can easily run into some issues I would just warn you about that Don’t feel like the easiest way to get around New York is to get a Citi Bike Unless you’re absolutely confident in bike riding In some pretty crazy situations In fact, i’m more afraid of people on bikes in New York Than I am afraid of other cars But a lot of times they’ll be going the wrong way I’ve almost been hit by people on bikes multiple times Just something to think about Those attacks hit New York very hard And my own personal story I was in high school Other side of the Hudson River in North Jersey I had people from my school whose parents were killed that day It is such a sensitive issue in New York And the reflecting pools are a very solemn place Something that I absolutely hate to see Are tourists there with selfie sticks Smiling Being very happy In a very solemn place Let’s be honest That memorial needs to be treated like a cemetary You need to show the same respect there that you would show at any kind of Memorial People died there Please, please be aware of that You even sometimes see family members of the victims Coming, leaving flowers Just breaks my heart To see teenagers, smiling and taking fun-looking photos there If you want to take selfies You want to smile a lot Do it in front of One World Trade Don’t do it, at the reflecting pools Tell me down below in the comments What you thought of this list of tips And make sure to check out our other New York City playlists All linked down below, in the description Special thanks to my camera guy Ben Guys thank you so much for watching as always Until next time

  2. Thank you for that last tip. I have seen so much disrespect there as well as other memorials through out the counry. Saw the same at the Alfred Murrah memorial in Oklahoma City and the Memorial for the Arizona at Pearl Harbor. I just wonder where some peoples common senses are.

  3. And then those who take picture at the memorial post them on their social media on 9/11 writing stupid things like if they cared… all they want is to brag they were there and show how "cool" they are. I hate how disrespectful they are… anyway, great tips 🙂

  4. Tips about respect are definitely the most important ones! And speaking of respect, the NY library is incredibly beautiful, but it's shocking how loud it is due to disrespecting tourists.

  5. We saved a bunch by parking in Hoboken for the day and taking the path/subway. It was easier than I thought it would be and your metro card can also be used for the NJ Path.

  6. Bonsoir Jon….tu es le meilleur guide de New-York….je te recommande à Tous mes amis en partance pour la ville la plus intéressante et surprenante….la ville de mes rêves….grâce å toi je commence à bien connaitre NŸ…..merci pour cette vidéo ❤

  7. That 1st tip is a good one. There are complications with the subway until you figure it out (not too difficult really) which make it different from London or Paris. BUT….I found all the MTA staff I asked for help were terrific. In fact most locals we met were great

  8. I was in NYC first week of october. The 9/11 Memorial was such a sad place for me. This place has so much engery – as if you could almost feel, what was going on there in 2001. But I couldn't believe my eyes, as I saw so many tourists, that where taking smiley-selfies all around the reflecting pools. That made me sad and angry!

  9. John ,your comments on the memorial pods are spot on ! ! !
    My partner & I visited at the end of January this year during the very cold spell. When we walked around both the pods I removed my own hat as a mark of respect & courtesy . The behaviour of some people i witnessed was nothing short of disgraceful.
    Keep up the great work please & we will be looking for you when we return in Feb 2020.

  10. hey does any one in the comment section want Madison square to be demolished and rebuild old Pennsylvania station

  11. I have not been to a Islanders game, and I'm sure the atmosphere is better than most other NHL teams outside of Canada, but there is NO WAY it can be on par with going to a Rangers game at MSG. Those fans are RABID and if you're a hockey fan I think you must experience that place erupt when the Rangers score a goal. I've been to games in Denver, Chicago, Boston, and Montreal and MSG is even better than those. Spend the money if you're a hockey fan. If you're just a average sports fan, I'm sure games in Brooklyn are still better than most other places. NY sports fans are amazing (even Islander fans). Great video. I think these are some of the best tips you've given…especially respecting the NYC locals. I've moved away from NY but still visit and even as tourist, other tourists can be very disrespectful.

  12. Some good stuff there, Jon. Locating the whereabouts of the conductor on the tube is a nifty tip I shall use. Also, what you said about the 911 memorial is spot on. I went down there shortly after it opened (I think we had to book tickets for it?) and even back then, a small number of people were clowning around like they were at Luna Park. Unfortunately it seems to get worse as the years go by.

  13. What's your take on Peak Thai on East 49th? That mango duck! I literally wanted a straw to drink the juices left on my plate.

    The waitress wasn't happy initially with the tip which was given. That's a different thing from the Netherlands though, that tip culture. I wasn't the one paying there by the way.

    But seriously. That mango duck!

  14. I’ve been driving to NYC for nearly nine years. I shop for decent parking rates for my stays and have saved a lot of money by doing so. So, that one tip about not driving, I disagree with. 👍

  15. I was a professional race car driver for 10 years and riding a bicycle in NYC is more dangerous than anything I ever did. You really have to a death wish to ride here, I’ve lived in the city for 40 years and it’s only getting worse with time.

  16. 8 yrs – 73rd & York Ave. UES with car – 14 yrs in L.A. must have car – & now Driving Back TO NEW YORK CITYYYY with my SUfrikingV…..I LOVE NY – 1 month baby – 1 month……hahahaha YES…..(newer going back to L.A. EVER)- & i have a good live here….but never going back for sure – TO MUCH SUN & other "stuff" lol

  17. Damn straight about the 911 memorial. The first time i went there i saw exactly what you are talking about an i was appalled by people acting that way and taking selfies.

  18. #8 is the one that really pisses me off. People see that there's a wait for a table and they just sit there with empty glasses and they don't give AF about other people waiting.

  19. As someone returning to NYC in March next year, I followed tip number 2 regarding getting tickets to watch an NHL game at the Barclays Centre before this video came out, and can confirm it is way cheaper, 2 tickets for New York Islanders vs Calgary Flames = $40. Tickets to an NHL game at Madison Square – $150 and up.

  20. We spent 3 weeks travelling around the US last year. The disrespectful people at the 9/11 Memorial was the most shocking and upsetting thing we saw. I could not believe so many people posing for smiling, happy photos in such a sad place. I cried a lot that day. Partly because of the terrible events it signifies, but mostly due to the disgusting behavior of so many insensitive people.

  21. also for the 9/11 memorial pools, they shouldn’t lean or weigh themselves with their arms, backs, elbows etc because of the sign of disrespect to the names and people who lost their lives

  22. New Yorkers were all very friendly when I was there! And a big reason why I want to go back! Learned so much about areas I was walking to, or from, or through.

    Also you can tour MSG during the day, like $35 I think, might see a practice of a team or rehearsals of a concert!

    But the big thing is the 9/11 memorial.. seeing people smiling for selfies by the fire trucks broke my heart. I left my phone in my pocket because I was there to pay my respects. Not sight see. Please be respectful!!!

  23. Excellent tips! Thank you!
    😑I can't believe it even has to be said about not being stupid & disrespectful at the memorial…they need to have signs that remind them to be respectful, no loud talking, taking selfies etc. I know they wouldn't necessarily help but it'd be worth a shot.😔

  24. We were at the 9/11 memorial on 15th September. It was busy and everyone was quiet and respectful. NYPD mounted section with charity volunteers were in attendance. A very moving experience.

  25. Great tips!! I’m based in the DC area, and it’s sad to see that there are still people being loud/disrespectful at the memorials.

  26. Amen to not bringing a car or renting a car. When my family and I visited NYC for the first time in June 2014, we flew into LGA, rented a minivan, stayed by Met Life Stadium, and ended up paying for parking at the transit center in Seacaucus to ride the train to Penn Station each day. What a waste of time and money!

    When we came to NYC this past June, we used mass transit from LGA to our hotel in midtown Manhattan. Much easier!

  27. 8:22 Another great option if you have some spare time is to go to a TKTS booth (the ones I know of are in Times Square and South Street Seaport). They sell tickets for shows that are happening really soon and at great prices. There is a line most of the time, but def worth it.

  28. Lots of great tips in this video. Here’s another one for you; If I’m driving and my final destination is somewhere in Manhattan, I park in Jersey City at the Newport Center mall. Cost anywhere between $10 and $15 depending on how long I’m staying. Then it’s just a short path train ride into the city.

  29. People who are taking pictures and think everyone is supposed to wait for them or walk around. I used to do that, now I'm like eff them and keep walking. They have no right to inconvenience others. And most of them take forever to take the shots.

  30. please tell me where are you standing right there? is that Hudson Walk?
    because i’m coming by December2019 till Jan2020
    Thank You

  31. In NYC right now.. used your videos to fill my days. Great info. Thanks so much! Love the off the beaten path not being a tourist stuff the best.

  32. I stumbled on his videos after planning on going to see my friend this January for the first time in New York and I'm not sure what to do for a winter in New York and thoughts or suggestions

  33. I Disagree with the reflecting pool. Tourist spend so much to get here, the last thing we want to do is to restrict them with big brother rules. Plus it's been a long time, time to move on.

  34. Great tips! The subway one was the best! I am coming to New York for the first time with my teenagers, so this is helpful for us

  35. I think you’re great😊
    So i rented a car for 10 days in NYC and LOVED IT! So glad i did, the views while driving are amazing! So fun driving all around the island and i found free parking in east village Brooklyn etc, wasn’t a problem. Do be careful tho, cyclist can be idiots. If u enjoy being able to go wherever you want when ever you want and have no problem being resourceful, i recommend seeing the city from a car😊

  36. Hi Jon! I certainly agree on driving and bringing a car to the city. In '18, we had a family vacation to NYC, and we drove from the DC area. We had business in Delaware, and turned it into a vacation. We had a hotel in midtown that offered free parking. I drove there, my wife freaked while wending our way through Manhattan (ha ha ha ha!), and we made it across town without an issue (or a horn). Once there, we used the subway and the bus system for the duration of our stay. (We needed the bus as we were going over to New Jersey.) We never used the car while in NY. Using the car in the city would have been troublesome at best, certainly expensive and time consuming. Getting around the city and visiting NJ and Brooklyn was easy and quick with public transportation. I know New Yorkers have issues with it, but it's actually quite amazing how well it works. Between the Citymapper app, Google Maps, and everything else online, navigating New York City on foot and via public transportation is super easy. Loved all of the tips, btw. Keep up the Good Work!

  37. Ex-New Yorker here, don't bring your car, cause of the traffic, AND there's like no gas stations, and if you find one, the prices are insane.
    Edit: Spelling

  38. The one about leaving the restaurant early gets to me. I am sure thousands and thousands of new yorkers would not care less about being polite or doing the right thing. Who cares , let them wait . Nice guys come last .

  39. yes yes yes to #5!! and i knew about the board! in my single days i always stood underneath it to make sure the conductor saw me get on a train late at night. sometimes they would even check on me if a group of rowdy drunk guys got in the same car. happened once or twice 🙂

  40. Thank you for your comment about how the Memorial is a solemn place and requires respect. As a fellow NewYorker and Veteran- I truly appreciate those words.

  41. one handy tip that I got from another channel was to download a copy of the MTA subway map pdf on my phone for reference. Some of the trains don't have the electronic display of which stop they were at, and the conductor voice over the speakers is often discombobulated, so I have found the offline subway map helpful.

  42. I concur about the 9/11 memorial. When I went back in July I didn’t take my camera out for pics. It’s sad that others had those selfie sticks out posing. Very disrespectful.

  43. Great tips! I have been catching up on all your videos and find them helpful (and enlightening 😀) I'm beginning to think I will be able to navigate the subways; and get around NYC without breaking my budget (I must admit I was a bit intimidated by the thought of learning how to get around by subway) Thanks, love your videos and love when your wife joins in the fun!

  44. Excellent list – well done Sir. Particularly like the subway conductor tip. Hello from London. Take care and stay warm : – )

  45. You should also tell people abou Y free rooftop bars, rather than go to empire state or top of the rock. Or people who go to empire states rather than top of the rock. You can't see empire state if your on it .

  46. The New York City government needs to see the last 3 minutes of your video, especially when it comes to the memorial. They are foolish about bicycles, but DeBlasio and company act as though the attacks never happened..

  47. The best parking tip I have is parking at staten island and ride the ferry over to south ferry and take subway to wherever you have to go plus it only cost $8 a day to park in the garage

  48. Very good video. 2 main points I want to make. Ive never really understood this thing for standing in line to eat food. Im a New Yorker who is not from an uppermiddle class backround and I personally would rather enjoy my meal in a place that does not rush you. Id want to enjoy mabey a drink after a meal or coffee and enjoy good conversation. I dont care if the place is not crowded. Eating out should be something special and not something to brag about to your friends that you waited in line to eat at the best thai restaurant in the city. My second point is that I too see tourist on the Brooklyn Bridge totally unaware that there is a bike lane and many are commuters going to work. Some of those bikes are going 40 miles an hour, but tourist are staggering over onto the bike lane laughing and taking pictures as if they are still in the small towns they come from and you are correct the bikers get angry they will curse at you and rightly so. Tourist need to be much more aware of their surroundings.

  49. tip one is very important for any memorial site world wide, always hate to see tourist at a vet memorial swimming in the fountain or climbing on the emblems or statues that represent the people being remembered etc.

  50. Seeing is believing when you need someone who can send you money via cash app and PayPal hack just contact +17605433523 hacker Robinson he will serve you the best

  51. I just wanna thank you so much because you speak a perfect English, I'm italian and I can understand everything you say, I'm coming to NYC in just 2 weeks and all of your tips are so useful! Thank you again for everything. 😊

  52. Thanks for tip #1. I went to the memorial twice before I moved here and it irked me. I was with a friend who called her dad (firefighter) after finding his best friend's name etched on one of the pools.

  53. Tourists! While you’re waiting on the narrow platform for your train, do NOT stand in the MIDDLE of the platform, especially if there is a group of you. Look around and notice that NO ONE ELSE is doing that, as it blocks others from passing along the platform. Wait back against the wall, or closer to the train platform edge (just be mindful of safety there also and don’t get too close to the edge and don’t stop paying attention to how close you are and to any coming trains).

  54. Coming over from uk on honeymoon in August. Want to see a Mets game any suggestions..or tips on getting tickets and were to sit in the stand..

  55. Hi Jon, we have just come back from our week in New York. It is an amazing place that never sleeps and they love using the HORN 24 hours a day. People get so hung up on using the taxis or using the subway system. We spent 6 days there and never took any transport of any sort. we walked 64 miles in total and believe me we found a ton of different things to see and many colourful characters. Most tourists won't see this because they are either crammed into a box above ground or crammed into a metal tube below ground. People need to use their feet to explore because there is so much to see. There are many different places to eat and if your walking you can knock those calories on the head and eat as much as you want. I do agree that there were a lot of tourists laughing, joking and taking selfies at the 911 memorial. They have no idea what that place means to a lot of people and you don't have to be a USA citizen to feel the loss. Its sad to see there are so many homeless people living rough but surprisingly not begging you for money. There was one incident where we was standing near a street corner getting our bearings as to which direction to head in when a homeless guy asked if we needed help to get to somewhere. We told him where we wanted to go and he told us exactly which direction to take to get there. He told us to have a good day and he turned around to go. I tapped him on the shoulder and gave him $5, it meant little to me (a few quid) but to him it meant getting summat to eat or a drink. It doesn't hurt to give a little when it can mean a lot to some. We didn't have the best of weather but it didn't matter, we had a wonderful time and we met a ton of interesting characters……….. would we go again ?……. in a New York minute…….. can't beat that New York Cooorrfffeeee 😉 Shame I didn't get to see ya on my travels Jon. Keep up the great vids my friend……… Simon.

  56. One reason I love your videos is because they are so realistic and helpful. Very practical and straight to the point. Keep up the great work

  57. Totally agree with the showing respect at 9/11 memorial, I can’t understand why people would want to take selfies and smile at such a sacred place

  58. I've been watching your channel since January when I started planning my upcoming December trip but this is my FAVORITE video so far for sure because of Tip #1. I have previously visited Manhattan (and had an AWESOME trip) but this time I will be traveling solo vs w/a partner and although I live in a big city and have navigated public transit alone before (locally), I will DEFINITELY take advantage of your tip to travel after dark in the first car with the conductor! Thank you!! <3
