Whether you’re a new transplant, a visiting tourist or a long-term resident, it’s quite a challenge to discover and conquer everything New York City has to offer. Fortunately, thanks to our valuable investments in mobile technology, it’s become much easier to navigate the bustling avenues and stay tuned in to happenings around the city with just a few taps and swipes.

The NYC Way app by MyCityWay, is the ultimate resource for transforming your phone into a one-stop personal concierge service, sensibly providing you with information for everything you need to know about surviving and thriving in the big city.

Once you choose whether you’re a visitor or a resident, NYC Way will provide you with more than 60 mini-apps to ensure your time in the city is well spent. Each app gives you access to quick, searchable references for the best places to eat, drink and shop, plus guides to public transportation, pharmacies, grocery stores, local news, Broadway listings, activities for kids, and lists of popular city events. You can even make reservations, order food online, search Craigslist and find the nearest venues with free Wi-Fi. There isn’t much NYC Way doesn’t do. 

Besides being extremely user-friendly, convenient and endlessly enlightening, our favorite features about NYC Way are the more uncommon city lists and resources you wouldn’t necessarily find in a visitor’s guide, such as users’ personal recommendations (from shopping tips to favorite bike shops), live traffic cameras, the Empire State Buildings’ lighting schedule, and deals and coupons nearby. You can also easily locate the nearest bathrooms, ATMs and street-meat carts, plus scan for movie show times, volunteer opportunities, car services, and restaurant grades.

You may never need to carry around another informational New York City guide again, especially since this app is completely free. If someone stops and asks you for directions on the street, your best bet is to tell them to download the NYC Way app. You’ll change their life, too.
