Some tourists yesterday asked where to get the 1 train in Queens ( for anybody who doesn’t know the 1 train isn’t in Queens). So this was in on Steinway street which is the second stop coming from Manhattan, I found out that someone told them to take the R train to the 1 train in Times Square looks like they took the train going to the wrong direction. So tip make sure you are taking the train in the right direction.

A google User says:

I pretty much agree with taking public transport from the airport if you are travelling light – done it twice now and will do so again on my next visit in 2020. It's quicker and cheaper. However, I have to take issue with Air bnb, which is mostly ILLEGAL in NYC. Bookers also run the risk of falling victim to scammers. There are plenty of hotels in the City to suit every budget, so don't take the risk of turning up after a long flight to find that the accommodation you 'booked' and paid for does not, in fact, exist.

Ciaran O'Duffy says:

Great video and tips. Many thanks! PS I agree about the CityMapper app. It's invaluable.

Dave Abbey says:

Jon, you are so balanced and rational in your videos. I have a list of NYC tips and recommendations that I like to share with some people. I link to your YT channel. I’ve lived in the metro area most of my life. Don’t change a thing. I don’t like unwarranted hype or scaring people. You do neither.

gabriel azize says:

So useful! For sure I gonna use all tips. thank you

Nura N says:

If the American embassy gives me a Visa, I'll definitely Come to visit to NY. Hi from Russia

Manu Gond says:

20% of total bill for tipping? 15% if service is little bad? Do you guys tip for asking directions too? Nah thanks …… I'll rather visit visit Japan

the fashioncloud says:

im the only human that goes to nyc and does't visit central park (actually inside), the met museum, the brooklyn bridge and chinatown!! biggest regretss everr

John Doe says:

If someone is giving me poor service trust me I ain't tipping.
Also a dollar tip per beer is insane pay your workers a decent wage

JAKA SENICAR says:
