I once received six tickets while parked on the sidewalk with the plate removed. Fortunately the judge dismissed them all for being "defective".
A large freight elevator helps when parking in your fourth floor living room.
ride what you've got; enjoy the ride!

I don't know ANYTHING about riding in NYC, but I love this pic:
If you haven't already, I think it'd be neat if you started a thread on your project--for the dog and bike lovers among us.

I knew Paul B, and Tessler, and BrooklynPete would kick into this one.
If you ride in, know the bridges, and bring quarters for that 'exact change' that they always request. If you have an EZ-Pass in your state, then, they are transferrable on the Bridges and Tunnels.
Avenues go Up and Down, and Streets go Left and Right. Everything is a box, and don't forget to experience Central Park.
In after 10am is good, but, without reading all three pages, get out by 230 pm.
Love those pix 75571!
As for advice on the 'wider avenues', avoid the manhole covers under any circumstances. When there is just a little moisture in the air, those things are as slippery as riding on an ice rink, and your tires could Zingggggggg right out from underneath you. Parked cars on the left or right side will come out of no where, so BEWARE! Ride in the middle of the road, as much as possible, and try to avoid bus fumes by staying clear of those things.
Keep in touch with us, and give a shout when you plan to make ground.
Tessler's office is by Madison Sq. Garden, so is our favorite Pizza Joint, and
I'm only 50 mins from the city, and the West Side Highway from the Javits Center to the tip of Manhattan is a gorgeous run along the Hudson River.
