Absolute Beginner's Guide on How to Use the NYC Subway

I find that a lot of tourists always struggle or are intimidated by the NYC subway system, and whenever I explain it to friends and visitors, I realize that it can be a confusing system. I decided to spent some time to put together this "Absolute Beginner's Guide on How to Use the New York City Subway System" in hope that this gets into the hands of visitors before they come to this city. I hope this helps:

PS: I hope this post doesn't get removed, as this is not spam. I am not making any money from this and am just trying to help tourists.

Oh wow. You are right. I just found GWB's post on the right, and skimming it it does seem very informative. In fact, we almost have the same structure and content. I did do a Google search before I didn't find any really-beginners guide out there, which is why I started writing the guide.

Sorry for the duplicate content then.

Very impressive! Should be a great help for first-timers and those that are afraid to use the subway. Having pictures really helps them to know what to look for.
