Traffic Information

Driving in Manhattan can be intimidating but with foresight you can have a smooth drive in your Sixt car rental. We recommend you take advantage of our optional GPS service to know about the shortest route due to traffic. Also make sure to look out for signs listing parking regulations on city streets. Most streets also require paying a meter, which you can do via cash, coins or credit card.

Viewing a map before driving is also helpful as some areas of the city are pedestrian-only. Speaking of pedestrians, many New Yorkers and visitors walk everywhere and it is important to pay attention. During certain hours turning may be prohibited at some intersections and will be marked by signs. And unlike in other US cities, drivers cannot turn right at red lights unless there is a separate turn signal.

Sixt Tips

The area that is now Manhattan was the home to a Native American tribe before it was formally incorporated by Dutch traders in 1653. New Netherland was renamed New York after the English conquered the city in 1664. You can see the oldest portion of the city by driving your Sixt rental car through the twisty streets of Lower Manhattan.

Feel like you are at the center of the world by going to Times Square. In Greenwich Village you can still find clubs and small restaurants with a hint of the Bohemian past of the neighborhood. Check out the bar scene in the East Village or scratch your shopping itch at the boutiques in Soho. And for an international feel and a budget meal, head to Spanish Harlem or Chinatown. A secret in the business-heavy east 50s in Midtown East are the many hidden Japanese shops and restaurants. Mingle with Japanese businessmen over a bowl of ramen or buy some high-end pottery.

If you need to go beyond the borders of Manhattan in your rental car there are several options. The Manhattan, Brooklyn and Williamsburg bridges take you to Brooklyn, while the 59th St. Bridge takes you to Queens. Upper Manhattan also has connections to the Bronx. And two tunnels and the George Washington Bridge connect Manhattan to New Jersey.

Sightseeing Destinations

You will never be bored in Manhattan! But there are some tourist attractions that are more worth your time than others. Park your car rental near Battery Park and take a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Hear stories at the museum on Ellis Island of the many immigrants who were processed here after arriving in New York by boat.

After, drive from Battery Park up the Hudson River to Harlem, a long-time home to African-American culture. The 843-acre Central Park should be on every itinerary. Walk along the many paths, sunbathe in Sheeps Meadow or go ice skating at the outdoor rink in winter. Walk the elevated High Line park and get a respite from the bustle of the city. Then grab some food in Chelsea Market, located in a building once part of the thriving Meatpacking District. No matter what your visit to Manhattan holds, Sixt has the right car rental for you.

Business Travel

Manhattan is the center of finance, media, culture and fashion in the US. When you find yourself in the city on business you may need to go from meeting to meeting, on your schedule. With a car rental in Manhattan you can do that easily, although be sure to factor in time for traffic and to find parking. There are many parking garages and lots located throughout the city, but take note of the cost as there could be different prices on the same block.
