On Getting Around the City

Car wash, NYC
Photo by myself around 25th Street and 10th Avenue, in Chelsea.

A view at the entrance to a car wash, on 25th Street, near the West Side Highway.

There are gas stations and car dealerships in Manhattan, too.


By the way, the city has announced a bike share program starting in the summer of 2012.

Apparently people sign up with $100 a year. Bike stations will be located all over the place, where you pick up or drop off your ride.

It's a big debate now about whether this is a good idea or a horrible one. Many New Yorkers are very nervous about how congested the sidewalks are already.

Hi Kitty, I love the idea of more people cycling and fewer cars in principal, but in reality I find too many NY cyclists just ignore pedestrians having the right of way. Hopefully we can find a way to make it work safely.

Biking is great way to get around NYC ,another great city navigational tool is City Maps . It's great because it's live and interactive and you can pretty much find out anything you want to know about any business in NYC.
