New York City's roads are usually very congested. We do not recommend renting a car during your stay due to the difficulty with finding parking, increased traffic during peak hours and the high expenses incurred for parking. However, if you decide to rent a car, you have two parking options: commercial parking facilities; and on-street parking. There are over 1100 parking facilities in Manhattan, and prices vary wildly between neighboring garages and lots. Be sure to follow the strict parking regulations.
