New York travel tips

1) Subway is the best way to get around New York City

It is not news that traffic in New York City is extremely high. Forget about renting a car if you are not ready to be stuck at the same traffic light for over 10 minutes. The subway is the best!

2) Choose the Katz Deli for street hot dogs in New York City

If you can not resist flavours from the street vans in New York City, be careful and choose only clean and qualitative ones. For example, the Katz Deli has served good hot dogs for more than 100 years.

3) Dress up to the House of Yes nightclub in New York City

Choose the best outfit and have an amazing night at the House of Yes nightclub at 2 Wyckoff Avenue in New York City. Depending on the day, you will see aerial-silk acrobatics, punk bands, burlesque shows, DJs, or Jellybean Benitez spinning disco. Whatever you choose, this place is the best for night entertainment!
