2, Visit the most famous parts and more: don’t visit just the Fifth Avenue, Greenwich Village and the rest of Manhattan. New York is much more than just that. You don’t need a guided travel. NY is more or less as any important city. You just have to open your eyes. Many other suburbs like Staten Island and the marvellous Brooklyn or Queens must also be visited.
3, If you don’t want to seem like a tourist, take photos in another way: you don’t have to take the same photos as anyone. If you want to slip by, just sit in a bench or get out from all the people.

6, Long hauls in New York: we are talking about a very big city and, although it has a very good public transports, you can spend hours to get to some places.
