Some general tips about orienting yourself and getting around Manhattan:


  • Your address at the New Yorker Hotel is 481 8th avenue (at 34th street)

  • NYC is a grid for the most part. The avenues run north-south; the streets run east-west.

  • Avenue numbers get higher as you move east to west, and street numbers get higher as you move south to north. There are a few avenues in the middle that have names (e.g. Lexington, Park, Broadway, Madison).

  • Once you are far downtown, everything has a street name, not number…bring your map!

  • Broadway runs diagonally through the grid, so don’t let it confuse you.

  • Bronx is north of Manhattan, Brooklyn is south, and Queens is east. This knowledge comes in handy when you are on the subway (e.g., a “Brooklyn bound” train generally means you are heading downtown)
