hey andrea,

definitely do a little research- there are some places where it is ok, and some places where you may get hassled by the cops (an expensive ticket).

subways generally are more difficult, i would recommend going somewhere in central park sometime midday. tourists are your best bet. just look out for "Quiet Area" signs and you should be ok. also washington square park can often be a good spot, and there are no quiet areas but always a lot of musicians set up, and there is some pretty stiff competition out there!

generally be smart and respectful and you should be ok. let me know if you have more questions. what do you play?

good luck & happy busking,
ric
