Traffic & Travel Tips
Many areas of Lower Manhattan are undergoing construction. If you are planning to drive, review the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center for the latest traffic information.
Street parking in downtown Manhattan is extremely limited. There are many parking garages in the area, but they are very expensive. Please use Public Transportation, if possible.
