Sorry, forgot I posted here - I'm pretty sure but let me check the flight info

Sorry - 1.45pm. I found a bus that is $12 or something - I'll be back with the info in a sec.

Maybe one of our resident New Yorkers knows how long it might take to walk from LGA to Ditmars Blvd or Junction Blvd in Queens - those are the two closest subways.

You'd think that they would make it easier to get to and from the airport...at least a train.

What street is your hotel on? or do you have the address - pm if you need to.

Looks like the M60 bus is the way to go - my hotel is on Broadway & 94th, and the M60 bus goes from the LGA terminal to Broadway & 116th. I can walk the rest of that.

We'll be lunching near Central Park by the time you and your crew arrive on Friday afternoon....by checking the map, your hotel is right there near Lower Harlem at the west edge of Central Park....

me and my "crew" consists of me and a suitcase!

I think my first plan once I drop my bags off at the hotel will be to find something to eat.

JFK & Newark are very easy to get to/from by train, which of course doesn't help you any.

if ya take the M60 you'll get a lovely little tour of Harlem.

you could take the M40 to Shea Stadium and hop on the 7 Train, which will take you into Midtown, either Grand Central or Times Square. Then you'd have to transfer subways to head uptown.

up to you... doesn't really matter either way.

Since I live at the last stop on the N/W train (Ditmars) I can help you out here.

The M-60 IS the way to go if you're heading in to harlem.

Otherwise, you can take the M-60 to Astoria Blvd (in Queens - like 10 minutes from LGA by bus) and take the N or W into the city. It'll take you right into the heart (Times Square) or you can get out at 59th and Lex (1st stop once you're in the city)

And if you're bored, you can swing by my apartment (5 minutes from LGA) and hang til it's time to go.
