  • Portable phone charger
  • Map
  • Refillable water bottle
  • An outfit suitable for whichever restaurants and venues you plan to visit

Safety While Enjoying the City

Overall, New York City is one of the safest cities in the U.S. to visit. But, that travelers must still be safety conscious and aware of their surroundings. You should keep a few things in mind when traveling to New York. There are panhandlers, but they are easy to deter by avoiding eye contact or giving a firm "no" when they're persistent. There are also pickpockets but by wearing a secure cross-body bag you should avoid being a target. Most tourist destinations like Times Square are safe and patrolled at all times of the day and night, and even areas that newcomers should avoid at night are pretty safe during the day. Avoid flaunting jewelry and walk with confidence, and you won't stand out as a tourist to be taken advantage of.
