Traffic & Travel Tips

Theodore Roosevelt riding a horse.

If Theodore Roosevelt were alive today, he might fare better on the streets of New York City with a horse rather than an automobile. This photo was taken at the entrance to Yellowstone National Park circa 1903.

Street parking in midtown Manhattan is extremely limited and parking facilities are expensive. Driving is not recommended. Use of public transportation is preferable.
