New York City has many traveling options if pavement pounding isn't your thing. Outside of owning a car, travelers can choose the subway, a zipcar, taxi, and, of course, a bike. If your weapon of choice happens to be the latter, Get There By Bike is a good app to have in your arsenal. For less than a buck, users can get an interactive map of NYC that offers bike friendly directions. It takes into account traffic, hills and, off-street bike paths for the urban biker. The app also lets users rate high bike theft spots, or dangerous intersections.
