I have been a member of TravBuddy since its very early days, and over and over I have heard people say that driving your own car in New York City is one of the few things in life you do NOT want to do. Everyone suggests parking in some neighboring place like New Haven, Connecticut or south in New Jersey and taking the train into New York. But for some reason I didn’t listen. Yes, I am invincible!!

After all, I had my GPS and my wife is a real great map reader and nagivator (that is my own word for navigator). And another thing I can tell you about NYC is that there really are only 317 cars in all of the city. There are about 3 billion taxis, lots of small vans used for delivery and as many pedestrians as can fit on the sidewalks and out into the streets, where they run between taxis trying to get across the streets. Some who are looking for a cab run right out into the lanes of traffic with arm raised to the point of blocking traffic or nearly getting hit by someone. My best advice is to listen to all those who say “DON’T DO IT!”
