JFK to Central Station

by pginer

Hi everybody! I am arriving at JFK and will have a meeting in Central Station at 2 hours from the arrival. Which is the quickiest and less expensive way to go from JFK airport to Central Station?
Thank you and regards

Re: JFK to Central Station

Is this Grand Central Station on 34th street? Quickest is a cab or a helicopter if service is still running? the cheapest is taking the bus to the subway. Taxi would be the best for you, hope there is no traffic...if there is, have the cab stop at the nearest subway and tunnel your way to Grand Central Station. tat tat cheers tommy x

Grand Central railroad station is at e 42nd street between lexington and madison. you can take the airtrain to jamaica sutphin boulevard and pick up the etrain into manhattan. get off at 53rd street and transfer to the southbound 6 train for one stop. note - there is a long walk between the two stations, important if you are carrying lots of luggage. figure 1 hour 15 minutes.

alternative is the NY Airport express bus for 15 dollars which picks up right outside the terminals and goes direct to grand central, about 7 dollars more than the subway.

the closer you are to rush hour in the morning or evening, the better you should consider the trains. off hours, the bus is probably faster.

Travel Tips for New York City

Consulate General of Spain IN THE BIG APPLE

by listenandlearn

If makes us feel very at home once we got inside the consulate. There were books, latest "El Periodica" and all the Spanish as well as Catalan newspaper for everyone; it even has few latest issues of "HOLA MAGAZINES."
There we meet the SPANISH General CONSULATE while waiting to be served.

The consulate is convieniently located in the east side and their exact address is: 150 East 58th Street, which is between Lexington and 3rd Avenue. If other than just dropping by at the consulate, I would suggest you give them a ring-a-ling: (212) 355-4080 - as they close to the public at 2 in the afternoon.

People at the consulate are very helpful, so, even just drop by and since it's located on the 30th floor you can even take quite nice photos of the busy midtown streets of Manhattan. The staff working at the consolate are very helpful and quite approachable.

Broadway Show Etiquette

by Nativenewyorker

As a stage actor, I have performed off-Bdwy, and have friends currently appearing in Bdwy shows. For visitors who are attending their first Broadway show, here are some tips that you might find useful:
While there is no official dress-code for Bdwy, suits for ladies & gents are always appropriate. Men can also wear a sports jacket & slacks, w/ or w/o tie, or a nice sweater & slacks. Ladies can wear a nice top & slacks, a dress, or blouse/sweater & skirt. This may be the only Bdwy show you will see - why not make it special?
PLEASE REMEMBER-you are seeing a LIVE show; the actors are real people and they can hear you if you talk. I can't tell you how disconcerting is is to hear someone making dinner plans while I'm trying to tell Hamlet to "look like a friend on Denmark!"
Ditto cell phones, beepers, etc. If you think you've turned them off, double check. Then check again.
A little courtesy goes a long way to making your first Bdwy show a magical event!

Don't use the TKTS booth in time square

by xtephen

I was in NYC last week, and every time I went past the TKTS booth, there was a 3 or 4 hour wait.

Someone told me about a TKTS booth in South Street Seaport (Pier 17). Its on the corner of Front & John Streets. I went to it and there was NO LINE. Its definetly worth the subway trip down to South Street to avoid the 3 hour wait at the times square TKTS booth.
