But in a city like New York, unless you’re staying for quite some time, it’s almost impossible to fit it all in. If you’re desperate to see and do as much as you can? Well, you do have options! And you don’t even have to hail a cab if you don’t want to. Taxies are tough in NYC. The drivers can border on downright rude, and you never feel like you’ve tipped correctly! If your girlfriends want to travel in style, you can rent a charter bus to get you safely from place to place.
