3 Helpful Tips for Seniors Visiting NYC, Brooklyn, New York

Walking is one of the most popular ways to see New York City’s sights, but it’s not ideal for seniors with limited mobility. Luckily, getting around the Big Apple can be made manageable for older men and women when you plan ahead and take advantage of a car service. Following are some tips to help seniors explore New York City with ease.

Advice for Visiting NYC as a Senior

1. Book a Centrally Located Hotel

Stay in an area that’s near the majority of sights you plan to see. If you’re going to several Broadway shows, for example, book a hotel in the theater district. You won’t have to deal with uncomfortable commutes or stress about travel time, and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. If you do decide to venture to another neighborhood, plan those trips well in advance so you can call a car service and arrange for a round trip.

2. Make Dinner ReservationsCar Service

Many NYC restaurants do not require reservations; however, if there’s a specific eatery you’d like to visit, inquire anyway. Otherwise, you risk facing long, uncomfortable wait times at the bar before dinner. Plus, apps and websites like OpenTable.com make it easier than ever to book a table — it just takes a couple of clicks. If the restaurant is too far to walk, arrange for a car service to drive you there at the appointed time.

3. Use a Concierge Service for Theater Tickets

Avoid fighting your way through Times Square and the rest of the bustling theater district by purchasing Broadway tickets through a concierge service and having an agent hand-deliver them to you outside the theater. That way, your car service can drop you off at the door before the show — no waiting in line at will call or the box office.
