The NYCTA is the best way to get around the crowded city, even with the reduced traffic on the streets overhead. Be sure to check the current status of the intended journey (now possible with display panels in many stations), as service changes can be frequest.

I had afternoon/evening meetings in lower Manhattan. The subway was not as packed as anticipated. MTA police are looking to see if you're not wearing a mask. The train was clean with no delays. It's been almost a year since I was on the subway. I missed it.

One of the craziest things I’ve seen is the subway. If you’re not used to using it then It can be quite scary as it’s a fast pace to what I was used to in the UK. If you’re there for a few days it’s probably worth while buying a weekly subway ticket (if you have a few days left on it you can always donate it to a homeless person like I did). If you get stuck there are usually staff to ask and even other passengers have seen I was stuck and could advise me. The subway entertainment is great, never seen anything like it. They always bring a crowd around them. As anywhere you will find the odd weirdo or few on the subways but don’t isolate yourself and you’ll be ok.

Get a weekly pass and hop on. Subway is clean, safe, goes everywhere. Some have excellent art work, with live musicians

The service on the New York City Subway is always on time with some delays and is the best way to get from point A to point B.
