< New York Subway and Bus Fares Raised for the First Time in 8 Years! >

Public transportation is very convenient in New York.

You can go anywhere with a flat rate 24 hours a day

One of the charms of NY, the city that never sleeps


The main MTA subway and bus

From August 20, 2023
It was decided to raise the price for the first time in 8 years.


●One ride was $2.75→$2.90 ●7-day unlimited rides from $33→$34 ●30-day unlimited rides from $127→$132

Finally, in a few years
The goal is to raise one ride to $3.50.

Well,
The yellow metro card that was one of the symbols of NY
It is scheduled to be phased out in 2024.

Those big, old-fashioned, inflexible metrocard vending machines are slowly disappearing.

Soon everything will change to "OMNY for contactless payment"

The NY subway will also be at a major turning point.


The original NY symbol coin type "token" was abolished 20 years ago

Replaces the current yellow MetroCard

And from next year, only contactless touch payments with credit cards, smartphones, etc. will be available.

If you have a yellow metro card, keep it as a memento.


In any case, the subway
Approximately 6 million users per day
An important "foot" for New Yorkers.

It would be great if you could efficiently ride the subway and bus and enjoy it 24 hours a day.

●The “Harlem Renaissance Exhibition” is being held at the Metropolitan Museum (MET) on Fifth Avenue in NY●

After the emancipation of slaves from the 1920s to the 1940s, African Americans migrated from the southern United States in search of freedom.

Black culture will bloom in Harlem, NY.


There are 160 paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, etc.!


I was surprised by the unique use of colors and touches.

While thinking about the historical background that I always talk about with Deep on my Harlem tours.

You can't help but experience the freedom and splendor of art.



It was so wonderful that people praised it and said, “It should be installed permanently!”


This event is open until July 28, 2024!

I want to go five more times, no, I want to see more.


●The Met presents
"The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism"

February 25 – July 28, 2024
