Travel to Other Event Locations
Getting to the New York Public Library
Subway: If you are coming from Washington Square, take the B, D, F or M train from the West Fourth station uptown to 42nd Street—Bryant Park station, or take the N, R, or W train from the 8th Street-NYU station uptown to the Times Square-42nd Street station. If you are coming from Union Square, take the N, R, W, or Q train from Union Square station uptown to the Times Square-42nd Street station. The library entrance is on Fifth Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets. Travel time is about 15 minutes.
Bus: If you are coming from Washington Square or Union Square, walk west to 6th Avenue and take the M55 (labeled 44TH ST 6 AV) uptown. Keep in mind that you need either 11 quarters or a pre-purchased Metrocard. Get off at 40th Street (if you're unsure where to get off, don't hesitate to ask the bus driver)and walk east to Fifth Avenue. The entrance is between 41st and 42nd Streets. Travel time is about 30 minutes.
Getting to the South Street Seaport
Subway: If you are coming from Washington Square, take the A or C train from West Fourth station downtown to Fulton Street station, and walk south on Fulton Street until you reach the cobblestone plaza by the water. If you are coming from Union Square, take the 4 or 5 from Union Square station to Fulton Street station, and walk south on Fulton Street until you reach the cobblestone plaza north of the water. Travel time is about 30 minutes.
Bus: From Washington Square or Union Square, walk half a mile east to 2nd Avenue and take the southbound M15 bus (labeled SOUTH FERRY VIA 2ND AVE). Keep in mind that you need either 11 quarters or a pre-purchased Metrocard. In about a dozen stops, get off at Pearl & Fulton Streets (if you're unsure where to get off, don't hesitate to ask the bus driver). Walk down Fulton to the cobblestone plaza north of the water. Travel time is about 40 minutes.
Ferry: This is the most scenic route, but you will first have to get to the E. 34th Street terminal. Cab would probably be quickest, but you could also walk east to First Avenue and take the M15 uptown to E. 34th Street. The ferry costs $2.75 and will take you past Corlears Hook and under the Brooklyn Bridge, giving you a brief glimpse of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. You'll land at the Wall Street terminal, just a short walk from the museum. NYC Ferry operates four lines between 34th Street and Wall Street. The Soundview line is quickest, as it runs express to Wall Street in about 15 minutes. Check the schedule at https://www.ferry.nyc/.
