If you’re planning to visit NYC, don’t wear flip flops or flimsy footwear, because the sidewalks aren’t in the best condition. Many are broken and uneven. Sidewalk slip and fall accidents are common. Do yourself a favor and walk around NY in a pair of shoes meant for the job.
If you happen to trip over broken sidewalk, you’ll land on your hands and knees causing yourself extreme pain and interrupting your vacation. Or worse yet, you can wind up in the nearest emergency room with fractures.
