Getting to The New Yorker Hotel
The New Yorker (at the corner of West 34th St. and 8th Ave.) is optimally
located regarding all forms of transportation except private automobiles. Penn Station, where Amtrak
trains arrive, is one block away.
Make sure you exit Penn Station on its 8th Ave. side.
If you take Boltbus or Megabus, the bus will drop you off
either at the hotel itself or a few blocks away. The Port
Authority Bus Terminal, which Greyhound serves, is seven
(North-south blocks in New York are uniformly 1/20-mile long and take about one minute to
walk. East-west blocks, of non-uniform
length, are long and take about four minutes to
How to get to the New Yorker from the airports:
Coming from JFK: You can take a cab (about $60 and one
hour), but there's no good reason to, since the
train will take you to Penn Station, which is one short block from the
New Yorker. It'll take about an
and cost about $12. Specifically, take the $5 AirTrain from
JFK to Jamaica Station.
There, transfer to Long Island Railroad (making sure you buy your
roughly $7 ticket before boarding the train) to Penn Station, New York.
There is a cheaper way, however. Take the $5 AirTrain to Jamaica station and then take the E line on the subway to the 42nd St. stop, which is literally at the hotel. Slower, this way will cost you $7.50 at most, $7.25 if you buy the MetroCard for the subway at the same time that you buy your AirTrain ticket. I always take Long Island Railroad, though, since it's faster and more pleasant.
- Coming from Laguardia: A cab will cost about $40 and take
about 40 minutes in traffic. Other ways: Take the M60 bus from
Laguardia, continuing through Queens into Manhattan,
getting off at
125th St. and St. Nicholas Ave. Transfer (for free) to the A or C
train south, getting off at the 34th St. stop, which is
literally at the hotel's door. Make sure you ask for a free
transfer if you pay your M60 bus fare in cash (coins
only, no bills); if you pay with a Metrocard, the
transfer is free and automatic. This way will take about 75
minutes (and is the least pleasant).
- Coming from Newark: A cab will cost something like $60. What I suggest: Take the AirTrain monorail (free) to the New Jersey Transit station and catch New Jersey Transit ($12.50) into New York Penn Station, making sure not to get off at "Newark Penn Station" by mistake, and then walk one block north to the hotel. Remember to exit Penn Station on the 8th Ave. side.
