Tips for Traveling in NYC

1. Sometimes walking is faster than taking the subway: It takes on average 1 minute to walk the typical city block and around 3 minutes to walk an avenue block. Use these estimates to determine if it’s worth spending the $2.50 for a subway ride when walking and getting some fresh air may be even quicker! 2. Transit Tricks: Subway and bus transfers are always free, unless you pay with coins – then subway to bus transfers have to be paid for again upon transferring. If you are making more than 2 one-way trips on the subway, at least 5 days a week a weekly or monthly unlimited Metro Card makes the most sense for you. The middle cars of the subway are always the most crowded. Try walking to either the front or rear most cars and you may have a much more spacious ride. 3. Taxi Cab Obligations: Despite what a cab driver might tell you, taxis are obligated to take customers to destinations in all of the 5 boroughs or one of the major area airports. As long as you pay the fare and tolls, you don’t have to take no for an answer!

Tips & Best Practices for Corporate Meetings:

Think generational: Never before have there been so many generations in the workforce at the same time. When planning a meeting be sure to consider the ages of all attendees; ensure that meeting activities, strategies and communication are appropriate and meaningful to all generations present. Diversify your presentation methods; try using audio visual materials and in combination with lecturing and asking questions to attendees to maintain engagement and interest. Properly organize the physical environment: The meeting space setup is especially important to ensure attendees are able to remain focused and attentive. Consider the number of people and nature of the meeting when deciding on the setup of the space.  Having enough tables and chairs for all attendees is essential and it is always recommended that no one sits behind, or to the side of the presenters. All meeting materials should be tested to ensure everything can be seen and heard  from the seats in the back of the room.  For more information about Meetings & Events at The Roosevelt Hotel, visit http://www.theroosevelthotel.com/default.aspx?pg=meetings
