  1. Thank you for this! I’m about to move to the city and even though my bf is helping me learn everything he’s not the best at teaching so I appreciate your explanations 🙂

  2. Really great information with lots of detail! Because of Covid I haven’t been able to get up to New York City to stay with my daughter, but I am enjoying the information on this channel and will be using some of it when I get up there!

  3. This is one of Sarahs videos which are helped us to make no mistakes in NYC in October 2019. The city is great and Sarah makes a good job to inform tourists in advance. Thank you Sarah.

  4. Just to be clear, "public transportation" refers to methods of transportation managed by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, an NYC agency; it doesn't include LYFT or CitiBike.

    Also, NYC (and by this, I mean "Manhattan") is relatively easy to navigate regardless of how you choose to get around. The portion of Manhattan north of 14th Street is a huge grid. "Streets" run in the east-west direction and "avenues" run in the north-south direction.

  5. Hi there Sarah and everyone …. What is the meaning of going ‘Uptown’ or going ‘Downtown’ , as there’s no such terminology used in my country ?

    Secondly, I am in New York currently and there’s this irritating problem I’m having with MTA, which is that after purchasing an ‘Unlimited Monthly Metro Card’ , there were certain modes of transport which I wasn’t allowed to board & ended up with buying additional separate tickets for it, like for example, LIRR ….. so is ‘Citymapper’ or any other transportation app which informs me whether my ‘Unlimited Monthly Metro Card’ is acceptable for that particular type of ride

  6. Hi Sarah, thanks for showing us the correct way to put the subway card in the slot. Many people are from out of town and don't know how to use the card. I must say you are very pretty, and i would like to see you with pink lip stick. No, i'm not trying to pick you up. I'm just telling you my opinion.

  7. here is an ide, why even make videos like this recommending things when you are sponsored by a company you are clearly going to say good things about them.. so tired of reviews/recommendations that are 100% biased..

  8. Thought it was funny you found it important that Lyft was environmentally conscious, but also thought it was ridiculous to charge 1$ for a Metrocard. Still a great video though!

  9. I paid for a 7days unlimited pass but I couldn’t use it after 2 times this mta card is bad quality I ended up like begging all the sta for each pass it’s bad experience for my first time in nyc
