You can drive your car around New York City; whether you’ll want to is another story. If you should choose to do it, use these sites to help you avoid getting lost, and steer clear of some potential pitfalls that can make driving in New York City a nightmare.
- Manhattan is probably the most difficult borough to drive in. You’re likely to encounter heavy traffic downtown, and parking is especially daunting. Often you’ll have to move your car to alternate sides of the street each day to accommodate the street cleaners. If street parking isn’t for you, be prepared to pay as much a month for a parking garage as you might pay for rent in a less expensive city.
- For a humorous take on New York parking, read "Tepper Isn’t Going Out" by Calvin Trillin.
