|Located within Renaissance Plaza, the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge is 5 minutes from Manhattan and the Financial District, with 9 major subway lines (A, C, F, M, R, 2, 3, 4 and 5) all within one block.
If you fly to NY, note that there are three major airports in the NY area: LaGuardia Airport (LGA), John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
From all of the airports, you can either take a taxi to the hotel or take the airport shuttle bus to Port Authority Bus Terminal or Grand Central Station, both in Manhattan. A taxi will cost more than a bus, but is your best bet if you have a lot of luggage or you arrive at night. It costs about $35 from LaGuardia, $45 from JFK and $65 from Newark. You also have to pay the toll for the bridge or tunnel, and a tip (15%). Below are directions for using public transportation.
From John F. Kennedy Airport - JFK
Take the AirTrain (monorail) from any JFK terminal to the Howard Beach Subway
Station (about 10 minutes and $5) where you can board the "A" subway train. Take the A train to Jay Street Borough Hall. It costs $2 and should take about 20 minutes.
From LaGuardia Airport - LGA
Take the Q47 bus from the Marine Air Terminal (where the shuttles from Boston and DC typically arrive) or the Q33 from all the other terminals. Both buses stop at 74 street-Broadway, Jackson Heights, Roosevelt Avenue in Queens, where you can board the E, F, R, V, G or 7 subway train. The easiest way to get from the Roosevelt Avenue station to the hotel is to take the R train to Lawrence Street in Brooklyn.
From Newark Liberty International Airport - EWR
Take the AirTrain (monorail) from any terminal to the Newark Liberty International Airport Train Station. Then take NJ Transit or Amtrak to Pennsylvania Station (Even though these trains run on the same track, NJ Transit is less expensive). Then follow the directions from Pennsylvania Station (see below).
From Pennsylvania Station
Amtrak trains from Washington D.C., Philadelphia or Boston will arrive at Pennsylvania Station. From Penn Station, take the Eighth Avenue subway (A train) downtown to Jay Street Borough Hall.
