Pro Tip: Getting Around During NYFW

Fashion Week is here again! However, unlike its Fall counterpart, February’s iteration of the event is notorious for freezing temperatures, inclement weather, and impractical footwear. Fear not, we’re here to help you—and your shoes. If you’re headed to any of this season’s plethora of venues, follow our tips to ensure a smooth ride with Uber.

 

PLACES TO BE

LINCOLN CENTER

Notable shows: BCBGMAXAZRIA, Milly by Michelle Smith, J. Crew

  • Like last year, your best bet for a pick-up (or drop-off) is the The Roslyn and Elliot Jaffe Family Drive, the covered entrance between Broadway and West 65th and Columbus and West 62nd. Drop your pin along Columbus Avenue and then coordinate with your driver once connected.

MILK STUDIOS

Notable shows: Cushnie et Ochs, Peter Som, Jeremy Scott

  • For drop-offs you can head straight down 15th Street. For pick-ups, however, we suggest dropping your pin around the corner on 10th Ave., as pull-over space on 15th might be tight.

PIER 59 STUDIOS

Notable shows: Tibi, Wildfox, Karen Walker

  • For drop-offs, ask your driver to take you down the Chelsea Piers Roadway, which can be accessed via 12th Ave. between 23rd and 24th. Pick-ups can be requested here too, but your driver won’t be able to wait long. Another option is the adjacent parking garage, which is only accessible via the Roadway.

SKYLIGHT AT MOYNIHAN STATION

Notable shows: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone

  • Pick-ups and drop-offs will be permitted all along West 33rd.

SPRING STUDIOS

Notable shows: Calvin Klein Collection, Theory, Michael Kors

  • Drop-offs at 50 Varick (between Laight & Beach) should be no problem. However, for pick-ups, we suggest requesting your ride to nearby 6th Ave. and Beach.

 

HOW TO REACH YOUR DRIVER

No matter the venue, things will be hectic after the show. We always suggest calling your driver in these situations to ensure a seamless pick-up. To contact your driver once he or she has been assigned to you:

iPhone and Android users: Tap the arrow on the bottom right-hand side of the app screen and select ‘Contact Driver’. From there, you will have the option to either call or text your driver.

Blackberry users: Click the phone icon on your screen to get in touch.

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience
