"How Do I Get There?"

Here are some useful directions to some of the more out of the way destinations.

The Statue of Liberty (Ferry stop at end of Battery Park)
  • From the East Side of Manhattan: take the 4 or 5 subway line downtown to Bowling Green station. This will let you off at the top of Battery Park.

    Just walk away from the buildings into Battery Park towards the round fortress known as Castle Clinton. That's where you buy the ferry tickets.
  • From the West Side of Manhattan: the 1 line South Ferry station has been reopened as of September 15, 2002. As before, you must be in the first 5 cars because that station is short.
Yankee Stadium (161st Street in the Bronx)
  • From the East Side of Manhattan: take the 4 subway line uptown to 161st Street. This will let you off right at the stadium.
  • From the West Side of Manhattan: take the B or D subway line uptown to 161st Street. This is the same station as above.
Shea Stadium / National Tennis Center (Flushing Meadow Park, Queens)
  • From Manhattan: take the 7 subway line from the Times Square or Grand Central stations at 42nd Street all the way out to the Willets Point/Shea Stadium station.
Metropolitan Museum of Art (Fifth Avenue @ 83rd Street)
  • From the East Side of Manhattan: take the 4, 5 or 6 subway line uptown to 86th Street. This will let you off at Lexington Avenue. You can then walk up 3 blocks to Fifth Avenue and over to 83rd Street. You can also take any uptown bus (Madison Ave, 3rd Ave, 1st Ave) and transfer to the 79th or 86th Street crosstown bus going west.
  • From the West Side of Manhattan: take the 1, 9, B or C subway lines uptown to 86th Street. Use the free Metrocard transfer and take the M86 crosstown bus east through Central Park to Fifth Avenue. You can also take any uptown bus (M10, M7, M11, M104) to 86th Street and transfer to the 86th Street crosstown bus going east.
The Cloisters (Fort Tryon Park, Upper Manhattan)
  • From the East Side of Manhattan: take the M4 bus (ask the driver if the bus goes all the way to the Cloisters) up Madison Avenue to the end of the route. This ride takes about 90 minutes from midtown.
  • From the West Side of Manhattan: take the A subway train uptown to the 190th Street/ Overlook Terrace station. This ride takes about 45 minutes but there is a longer walk through the park when you get there.
Bronx Zoo (Fordham Road and Bronx River Parkway)

American Museum of Natural History (Central Park West @ 79th Street)
