New York City is unlike anywhere else. In a city of steel and glass, not only is the culture all its own, but the city’s behavior and its design are unique as well. The city is loud, the people are loud and there’s always something to do. Not just the touristy things that travelers like to experience, but you can almost always find a low-key parties, events and fun, cheap things to do!

Even though NYC is mainly a concrete jungle, parks and green spaces do exist! Aside from notable Central Park, there’s the sprawling, 585-acre park in the heart of Brooklyn: Prospect Park. With a 90-acre forest, a 60-acre lake and even a zoo, you’re bound to feel at one with nature among the leafy greens and animals nearby.
If you’re wondering how to find parking in NYC, you’re not alone. Roughly 54% of the population doesn’t own a car, but that doesn’t mean New Yorkers are without their parking problems. In fact, a 2017 study showed that nearly 17 hours were spent each year looking for a place to park, wasting hundreds of hours, fuel and emissions per driver.
Not to mention the unforeseen personal and emotional problems a motorist can incur, such as missed appointments, abandoned trips and bouts of road rage, it’s no wonder that the New York City Economic Development Corporation reported “…only 27% [of New Yorkers] commute via car, truck or van.”
Many drivers in NYC avoid driving themselves altogether, choosing New York City’s famous public transit system, the MTA, or other means of transportation like the NYC Ferry or Citibike, which allows New Yorkers to get around on two wheels instead of four.
