It’s electric.

It’s buzzing⚡️.

It’s big.

It’s fabulous💎.

New York is one of the world’s greatest cities.

If you want to stand apart from the other 8+ million tourists who visit New York every year, you need to have a few tricks up your sleeve and tips in your arsenal.

Guide books do a great job of telling you where to go and how to get there, but if you want to experience the 🍏 Big Apple like a native New Yorker 🗽, there are tips you won’t find in the book.

1. Avoid Subway in Favor of a Real Deli 🍞

Come on, are you really going to go all the way to New York and then eat the same old chain sandwich that you do at home?

Make the most of the amazing array of independent delis in the city and sample some of the very best sandwich creations that you are ever likely to taste!

I personally couldn’t visit NYC without having at least one Reuben sandwich.

Yum!

2. Never Step into an Empty Subway Carriage 🚇

An empty carriage on the New York subway is an incredibly rare thing, especially in Manhattan, so you can be sure that if you find yourself stood in front of an empty car, there is a reason that it is empty: most likely due to a horrible smell, puddle or something even worse inside!

3. Try Not to 🚶 Stop in the Middle of the Sidewalk

You might be enjoying a vacation and taking it all in, but the majority of people on New York’s sidewalks are trying to get from A to B in their everyday lives.

Try not to cause any upset by suddenly stopping in the middle of the street to look at something;

you will almost certainly end up getting trampled!
