Now heres something really useful for all the New Yorkers or travelers visiting New York. TriptropNYC is a free web-based service that allows you find out how long it takes to get from one place to another. Even though the service is limited to New York only but it may turn out to be a real helpful tool for many travelers out there.

It is considered more of an easy to use travel time map application. To get started all you have to do is enter an address and click “Map it” button on the website. As soon as it is done processing you will be able to see color coded layer on the map along with the time it takes to get anywhere else. You can then easily compare 2 different addresses on separate maps presented side by side.

Now, for example I’m at “Kips Bay” and I want to check out how long will it take for me to reach “Battery Park City”. I will simply enter my location and my destination and click “Map it”.
