Free bus and subway maps are free at any subway station token booth or view the map and station information online. Inside every subway station you'll also find a large wall-sized subway map and detailed neighborhood map as well. If you take the subway late at night, the transit authority recommends waiting in the marked yellow Off-Hours Waiting Area, which is generally located right near the station's staffed token booth.

If you're traveling to or from JFK airport, the Airtrain stops at all JFK terminals and connects with the A subway line at Howard Beach and E/J/Z subway lines at Jamaica.

A note on taking pictures: Although photography is not forbidden in the subway (a proposal to ban photography was defeated in 2005), do use good judgment when taking pictures. For example, taking pictures of token booths or more sensitive equipment is probably not a good idea.
