Summertime in the Big Apple
New Yorkers tend to be divided into two camps for touring their hometown: those who do and those who don't (and may not know how). If you find that you have to spend part or all of the summer in the Big Apple, check out these tips:
1. NYC Residents: Get NYC identification. There are many benefits, such as discounted annual museum memberships, entertainment tickets and park department membership discounts.
2. Get around town with public transportation. Most residents already have the current method, a MetroCard. Check out the website to make sure that you have the one that suits your needs.
3. Act like a tourist and take a look at the Official Guide to New York. You can pick up the print version in Grand Central or Penn Station or in the Times Square Information center.
4. All of the NYC parks have summer activities: Celebrate Brooklyn at Prospect Park, SummerStage at Central Park and the annual NY Philharmonic concerts that tours the city. Get the app or check out the calendar.
