#2 Screenshot the subway map before you get onto the subway

Some subway cars aren’t yet updated to show the next upcoming stops/transfers so use your phone to navigate where to get off.

You can catch a cellphone signal in between some stops, but play it safe with having it already on your phone. This way, you don’t get lost or have to hover over someone to check the subway car map.

And still, if you’re more into tech-hacks, just download an APP called “New York Subway MTA MAP”. It’s works with no wifi too!


#3 Bring a selfie stick

Curiosities Our Bucket List 10 Life Saving Hacks To Travel Around NYC DJI Osmo Mobile

It may seem like such a tourist thing to do, but if you don’t want to bother a busy New Yorker to take your picture, then this is the best way to snap a quick pic!

Which one we recommend? Try the one from DJI, named Osmo Mobile 2.

Also, for inspiration, follow Fomofeed to find all the cool free NYC instagram-worthy shots.


#4 Pack comfortable walking shoes

10 Life Saving Hacks To Travel Around NYC Fort Tyron Park

With so many great walking spots in NYC, you will need a good pair of shoes that won’t hurt your feet after a few miles.

Some favorite (and free) walking spots include Fort Tyron Park, FDR Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, and the gorgeous pink Williamsburg Bridge, that has been featured in countless movies!

If you’re into adventure, you might want to explore the beauty of upstate New York or our Behind the Scenes Tour of the Abandoned Ellis Island Hospital! So scary and curious!


#5 Use travel APPs to make your life easier and save some cash

Here’s a list that may come in handy when traveling around NYC.

  1. Check out Yelp for check in discounts to restaurants around the city and Open Table to make a quick reservation.
  2. Use Juno, Lyft or Uber to share rides and get around the city, or the Citibike APP if you prefer biking around.
  3. Download Splitwise to make it easier to track and split expenses amongst your travel party.
  4. Check out the HotelTonight APP for exclusive hotel deals.

#6 Carry a portable phone charger

10 Life Saving Hacks To Travel Around NYC Mophie External Battery

This is crucial, especially because with pictures and social media, your battery will drain in no time. You’ll be out and about all day in New York, so be sure you buy a phone charger so you stay plugged in all day – most will be under $30 and well worth it!

But we love the Mophie products, even though they are a bit more expensive. They have a (RED) Collection where “a portion of the proceeds from every (PRODUCT)RED™ purchase will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa”.


#7 Beware of street food

10 Life Saving Hacks To Travel Around NYC The Halal Guys

NYC is well-known for their delicious hot dog stands and roasted peanuts, but be careful with where you choose to eat! You might have a bad time during your trip if you pick the wrong one!

Find a food cart that has a long line or keep an eye out for the most trusted food cart, like the traditional “The Halal Guys”. We love them, and so does every other New Yorker in town.

You can find them at West 53rd Street corner with 6th Avenue, and a few other spots in the city!


#8 Save money on Broadway tickets

#9 – Don’t fall for street scammers/hustlers

Curiosities Our Bucket List 10 Life Saving Hacks To Travel Around NYC Matteo Catanese

NYC will always have people hustling outside on the streets so beware of the scam! You may wind up with fake tickets, blank DVDS or something else counterfeit that you just paid for.

Just go straight to the official website or authorized resellers to purchase and be safe.


#10 Research pay what you wish museum days

We had a pretty amazing night during this last New York Fashion Week. Everyone that night felt what it’s like to be a child again!

We hosted a beautiful group of Influencers from Brazil, that are in New York for the NYFW, at the show: The Lion King.

We had to do something “behind the scenes” to stay true to our concept. So, we organized an awesome private backstage experience after the show. The girls met the one and only, Simba and the very beautiful and talented, Nala.

They both did an extraordinary presentation that night, with a great cast and creative team. Both were incredibly sweet with the group. They took their time to talk and answer all the questions the girls had. Not to mention, their kindness during the countless pictures we took!

Just a bit of information on The Lion King. It’s an award-winning best musical, with 80 million audience members worldwide and 70 major theatre awards internationally. Plus, 27 global productions around the world and it’s the 3rd longest running Broadway show! Wow!

We are very happy that everyone had a great time. We were all able to experience and feel what it’s like to be a child again!

Thank you FHits, Camila Coelho, Carolina Tognon, Constanza Fernandez and Janaina Carvalho for a memorable night and trusting us to take care of you!

Thank you also, for our great VIP Chauffeur partner, for taking us around New York City and guaranteeing we got to the show on time!

Take a look at a quick snapchat done by Camila Coelho:

Thank you Disney for believing in our work and making this project come to life!
