Running Along Fifth Avenue

Photo by myself around 57th Street and Fifth Avenue.

A runner whizzed by on Fifth Avenue, near Central Park South the other day. He was watched by me and another guy on the bus. Ha.

The bus system is pretty reliable in New York and is a nice alternative to the subway. It's great for those who can't manage walking down several runs of stairs or who need to get crosstown. You also have some great views of the city.

I always recommend the M5 for those who want a nice tour. It runs from West 178th Street, then down Broadway to Fifth Avenue to the very tip of Manhattan. The fare is the same as slightly less than the subway, $2.25 per ride at this writing.

There are tons of bus routes to choose from, though. For the NYC bus map on the MTA website, click here.

Thanks to my buddy ChickenUnderwear for the correction!

I'm a fan of the subways, but I discovered one benefit of MTA's buses on my most recent New York visit: The crosstown buses are a great way to get across Central Park quickly and easily. The park is a beautiful oasis in Manhattan, but its meandering footpaths don't offer an easy way to get from one side to the other.
