Driving to New York City
Since you probably won't need a car when you get to New York City, parking is quite expensive, and driving can be confusing for the uninitiated, I highly recommend taking one of the commuter trains from Connecticut, New York or New Jersey rather than driving into New York City. If you decide to drive, pay close attention to parking signs, because getting your car out of the pound can be expensive and time consuming.
