The NYC subway is old and some new. Definitely the fastest way to get around NYC. The photo building is an old entrance to the subway system. Near the Staton Island Ferry and Wall Street. Also the graffiti is gone from the trains.

I found the Subway very convenient to use especially in New York. Uber tends to be expensive so the other alternative and is way cheaper is the subway. They could do with doing more to keep it clean. Seats are alright. Overall was ok and...More

Considering the distances around NYC, the subway is a great help - unless of course you can afford it to travel by taxi. The subway trains are old and noisy, the stations are old and hot and the whole system should be brought into the...More

If you need to get to Manhattan from Queens or northern Brooklyn take the 7 train. In two years I’ve had only one issue, a train had mechanical problems in the tunnel. At rush hour it runs every 3-4 minutes so it’s never as jammed...More

I took the subway several times while in NYC as a tourist. Its pretty confusing for tourists to navigate. The busy stations have an attendant that you can ask questions and purchace tickets from. The waiting area gets quite hot, there is no AC there....More

On our recent trip to New York City we purchased the 7 day unlimited MetroCard for $33 per adult. We were staying in Long Island City and found this card great value for money, using it multiple times each day as we navigated Manhattan Island....More

Not as scary and difficult as you might think. The signs and maps are pretty clear once you go over them a few times. Just try it!

Strange place, sweat box and not the nicest place around. People have no patience and not a very easy system for tourists to understand the first time.

After speaking to many friends we're happy we decided to try this popular and busy public transportation system. The only difficulty was determining east and west but New Yorkers are eager to assist when asked.

I guess, if your teens are higher then 44 inches, there must be a metrocard for each of you. Magnetic ticket. You can choose to put some to e rather then value on metrocard. 5 day pass is a good choice
