Tipping in New York

When and how much should you tip

Tipping is very important to the New York economy. Waitresses, bellhops, and concierges will expect a small gratuity for their services. You don't have to tip wildly, 1 or 2 dollars is often plenty. In a restaurant or for room service, consider tipping 15 to 20 per cent of the bill instead.
