Should I Drive in New York City?, Brooklyn, New York

When you call New York City home, or when you’re on vacation in the Big Apple, getting around town can be a hassle. While it may be tempting to buy or rent a car, taking responsibility for a vehicle can be a headache. Here’s what you should know about driving in NYC and why hiring a private car service is the perfect alternative. 

What are the Disadvantages of Driving & Owning a Car in NYC?

Owning your own vehicle or renting a car is common in most cities; however, NYC has its own set of unique challenges. Car insurance and gas come at premium prices on the island, making it an expensive luxury. Plus, finding street parking is difficult, if not impossible in some neighborhoods, so you’ll likely end up paying big fees to park overnight in lots and structures. Additionally, getting your bearings and figuring out the best way to get through traffic and to your destination safely and efficiently can take years of practice, not to mention the vigilance needed to drive defensively as taxis and shuttles perform frequent pickups and drop-offs that block lanes. 

What Benefits Will You Enjoy By Using a Car Service?
