    Have someone pick you up at the airport, get someone with a car to show you around the city and learn to use the subway system.
    Enjoy
    Oh yeah, bring a light jacket the weather is still cool.

    Bring walking shoes.
    Bring comfortable clothes.
    Don't look like a tourist.
    Walk at the speed of everybody else.
    Keep a comfortable edge when you negotiate.
    If you can't understand the subway, take the bus.
    Take the on/off bus one day to get to know the city areas.

    Thanks curlando! I'm leaving tomorrow morning but I've already booked a nyc airport shuttle and my luggage is also ready (yes, I packed a big jacket because the weather forecast is 58~42 haha..) and I did a research about the subway system. This is my first trip to usa and Im excited about it. Thanks bro!

    Go to the nearest subway station and grab a subway map, it will help you with the Subway system and it is also a great NYC Map. If your cellphone works, Google Maps shows you even which train and bus you need to go to places.
    There are SIM available for 15 USD which includes Data + Voice. I always buy one, best investment ever.
    Also try to purchase a Week long Metro Card, it will help you with transportation ALOT!

    If you are short on budget, check this site:

    It shows you were to eat, also which museums are cheaper or free on specific days.

    If you are still reading this after your arrival I recommend a Grayline city tour to orient you. Its on/off option is a great option for first time tourists.
