Traffic Information

Manhattan is fairly easy to navigate thanks to its simple grid system. When you hire a car from our offices in the south of Manhattan, you're within easy reach of the 9A highway, which hugs the east coast of the city, and FDR Drive which will take you north west. It's also simple to drive directly north on smaller roads, but be prepared for some traffic- the city streets can get congested during rush hour. From Manhattan, it's a fairly easy drive to all of the major airports in the area, including LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy, and Newark.

Sixt Tip

Manhattan is an iconic destination that is never far from TV or cinema screens, and is packed-full of famous buildings, bridges, and parks. Although Manhattan is a relatively small area, it's filled with attractions- and most are open year-round. It's a particularly popular area for shopaholics, thanks to department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales, and many of the shops in the city stay open well into the evening. The nightlife scene is also a huge draw, with some of the world's top restaurants and trendy rooftop bars. There are tranquil spots to unwind too, like Central Park with its leafy areas and boating lake, and the laid-back South Street Seaport with its sunny terraces and seafood restaurants. Once you've hit the big attractions like The Statue of Liberty, it's nice to find lesser-known parts of Manhattan, away from the tourist areas. Cosy jazz clubs are a local favourite, as are small, family-run pizzerias.
