4. Those wishing to rent a car should keep in mind that during the week the roads are rather jammed with vehilces. Reaching the city center by car is almost impossible. Many travelers prefer to leave their vehicles in the remote areas and to reach the city center by underground. Weekends the traffic is not as heavy on the central roads however the jams are quite possible.

5. Travelers should be watchful and keep a sharp look for their personal things. In public crowded areas one may easily turn a victim of pickpockets and jostlers, that is why one should not keep valuables and substantial sums of cash by oneself. One should avoid being engaged in communication with strangers and use private services no matter how tempting the offers would be.
6. Drinking of alcohol is allowed for 21 year olds and older thus setting off to a restaurant, bar or a night club young people should have documents of identification. Alcohol and spirits can be bought in specialized stores as well.

7. Manhattan bans smoking in public places. Heavy fines are charged for the ban violation. Close to every shopping and entertaining center, public institution and restaurant one will find specially equipped smoking areas. The price of tobacco goods is rather high. That is why it is reasonable to be backed up with necessary packs of cigs for the tour.
8. Restaurants and bars welcome tipping. The amount of tips should be up to 10 – 20% of the total order sum. Hotel maids are commonly rewarded with 1 to 5 USD tips. Taxi service is commonly rewarded with 10 – 15% of the total trip cost.
9. Photo and video recording is not allowed in some museums and on the territory of some landmarks thus the rules should be specified in advance. Some museums allow photo and video recording at extra cost.
