At NYU, the idea of driving anywhere in the city is hilarious, as most students would agree on two things: one, it is very hard to find a parking space in the NYU area (that is, a free parking space), and two, it really is not necessary to have a car, with the array of reliable and affordable transportation options that are available.
Parking garages tend to be quite expensive, and spending money on meters is not the way to go because it is also very expensive and geared toward people who park for a brief period of time. Parking options also constantly change in lieu of the various activities that occur in the city. Most students believe that the best ways to get around are by foot (if you live relatively close to campus), the NYU shuttle bus (free of charge), and public transportation. Taking the subway or a bus is the way to go. These options are quick and convenient and not nearly as intimidating as they seem. Cars simply are not a part of life at NYU. Everyone takes public transportation and leaves their cars at home. It is actually very liberating to never have to worry about gas, windshield wipers, oil changes, or flat tires.
