Traffic conundrums and the crunch of a show and snow filled day. One thing I love about New York is how everyone gets around. You'd have to be a southerner to really understand the social acceptability/variety of transportion around the city. Walking, of course, bicycling, and public transport all have merits, unlike mainstream Houston, as well as cabs, cars, and car service. So, when trying to make back-to-back shows, which traveling activity should you do? Let me tell you where the shows are: Lincoln Center and Chelsea primarily, which are not that far, but not too close.
If you look in the left side of the map, you'll find Lincoln Center's little yellow square at the bottom of the Upper West Side. Just being two neighborhoods above the big neighborhood of Chelsea is a nice straight shot, which is great for the Subway new-comers like myself (Try using Hop Stop if you're a beginner) It's not always easy to convince your friends to tag along, but for $2.50 and trains coming every 3-5 minutes, traffic doesn't apply to you. Are you wanting the Eva Chen Instagram shot? Outside of rush hour, cabs or Uber is great when you can get them. They can seat up to 4 or so show-goers, and if you aren't into taking turns paying the fares, you can split fares on Uber's app. But what about when you can't get a ride so easily, like when it's sub-infinity degrees and everyone packed in your show is now also leaving and using their tech-mittens to snag a driver? With a little planning, you could pencil in a driver of your own. For an hourly rate, you could have a driver zip you around on your densely packed day. There you have it, wheels for every fashion week traveling situation.
