Having travelled to Washington DC several times, we are very comfortable using the Metro. It is clean, easy to understand and does not have a rushed "pace" feel to it and its riders.
Help me with the New York subways? My husband, my teen son and 9 year old son and I are going to NYC in a month from Tues-Sat.
What are the subways like in NYC? Appropriate way for kids to get around? Any tips for understanding trains? We'll be seeing all the touristy things....
We will walk as much as we can, but want to get idea of subway vs cabs for a family.
