New York – Essentials

New York is the largest city in America with more than 8.2 million people living within the city limits. A sprawling city of 790 square kilometers, New York offers public transport options that can get you virtually anywhere in the city in a short period of time, as well as connecting options to cities outside of New York such as those in New Jersey and Connecticut. While New York previously had a bad reputation for crime, the city today is generally very safe with tourists only needing to take basic precautions they would in any large city location.
