Car Rental, Driving and Parking in New York
Driving around the heart of New York is only for the most experienced and confident of drivers. New York is known for its fast yellow cabs, which weave in and out of the traffic, and many drivers also tend to be rather 'horn-happy'. Parking can also be a nightmare, with only the largest of hotels and shopping malls offering their own underground garages.
However, driving outside of New York can be a real joy and many nearby towns and scenic coastlines are just waiting to be explored. Highlights include Long Beach to the southeast, Hempstead and Brookhaven to the east, and even Philadelphia is within driving distance, being located to the southwest.
