3 Things You Should Know Before Visiting New York From the City's Premier Apartment Rental Company, Manhattan, New York

New York City is one of the nation's largest, safest, most convenient cities, but for first-time visitors, the scope and density can be overwhelming. Corporate Habitat, one of the city's premier providers of luxury apartment rentals, know how intimidating the Big Apple can be. But you can keep yourself safe and enjoy your stay by listening to your common sense and following a few basic tips.

Before your first visit to New York, you should know about:

  • luxury apartmentPublic Transportation: Boasting one of the most extensive public transportation networks in the world with 24/7 access, New York City makes it easy to get around. Stay away from any unlicensed taxi cabs, and only get your MTA access cards from the station kiosks or licensed vendors throughout the city.
  • Sightseeing: Companies throughout the city offer walking, biking, and guided tours focusing on any aspect of New York you could imagine, but be sure you only use licensed providers. Just use normal precautions when walking around, obeying traffic lights and using crosswalks whenever available.
  • Safety: While New York's crime rate is far lower than other major cities, you should still be cautious. Only use ATMs in well-lit locations, keep a copy of your passport in your hotel or rental apartment, and stay away from those costumed characters in Times Square and other tourist locations. They're often unlicensed and can be aggressive in pursuit of tips.
