TIP #1 Subways and Metro Cards

Planning on getting on the train more than three times in one day? Twelve times or more in seven days? If you answered yes to either question, then you should buy an unlimited MetroCard. The more you use it, the less each ride will cost. A one-day unlimited MetroCard, or FunPass, is only $7. A seven-day unlimited MetroCard is $25. Please note that unlimited cards can only be used by one person at a time.

TIP #2 Rush hour on the Subway

If standing shoulder-to-shoulder with a stranger on a crowded train or bus isn't your style, we suggest avoiding public transportation during rush hours. Typically, rush hours are 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. New Yorkers will thank you for this. Please note that these times may vary slightly.

TIP #3 Need discount tickets to a broadway show?

Visit one of the three TKTS Discount Booth locations (TImes Square, South Street Seaport, or Downtown Brooklyn) and purchase tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals and plays for up to 50% off.

Please note that you should only purchase tickets from authorized TKTS booths. Tickets not purchased through TKTS will not be honored.

TIP #4 Where can I find a good place to eat?

If you are looking for a restaurant near Upper Yorkville Suites, ask David and Bob [or ask the staff] upon arrival. They know the area very well and can suggest restaurants based on your preferences or tell you about a few of their favorites. They are always more than happy to talk about the neighborhood (trust us). You can also call or e-mail UYS in advance.

Not what you are looking for? Complimentary guides are available in the lobby for your convenience.
