How to Get Here
Manhattan By Plane

New York City has three major airports: LaGuardia (LGA), Kennedy (JFK), and Newark (EWR). Flying into any of them is easy, and you can get ground transportation from your airport to Manhattan with very little trouble.

We recommend that our guests fly into LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Catching a cab from LaGuardia to the Financial District is very simple and costs about $50.

Public transportation from LaGuardia is also an option, but it requires a transfer that can be difficult if you are carrying several bags. Take the M60 Bus from the airport to the Astoria Blvd/Hoyt Ave stop in Astoria. There, you can switch to the N or Q train.

Manhattan By Train

New York City has two main rail stations in Midtown: Grand Central Terminal (on the east side) and Penn Station (on the west side). Each is also served by numerous subway lines. Grand Central is served by Metro-North Railroad, which goes to NYC suburbs in New York and Connecticut. Penn Station is served by the following: Long Island Rail Road, Amtrak, and NJ Transit.

Metro North is available into Grand Central Terminal in midtown.

Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), NJ Transit, and Amtrak Trains are available into Penn Station in Midtown.

PATH Trains are available from New Jersey into Manhattan. Consult this PATH webpage for directions for your chosen travel time.

Manhattan By Bus

There are a number of affordable, convenient bus lines that travel to New York City from around the United States and parts of Canada. These include BoltBus, Megabus and Greyhound.

All Greyhound and New Jersey Transit buses arrive at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan. Easy access is available via cab or subway to hotels and The King’s College campus.

BoltBus and MegaBus often offer cheaper options than Greyhound and drop off at various street-side locations in Manhattan.

Manhattan By Car

If you are traveling to NYC for only a day or two, traveling by car is a good option. While parking is limited, parking garages offer discounted rates over the weekend.
