Here are some travel and hotel recommendations for those traveling into New York City. The Greenpoint loft, where we are getting married, is located in Greenpoint Brooklyn, so most of our recommendations are located in very close proximity to the venue. For those who prefer to stay in Manhattan, we've listed one hotel recommendation in the East Village neighborhood. If you want to search for other hotels in Manhattan- the neighborhoods of the East Village and Lower East side are the areas with the easiest access to Brooklyn.

LaGuardia is the closest airport to Greenpoint Brooklyn or Williamsburg Brooklyn (about a 20 minute cab ride). JFK is further out and is approximately a 40 minute cab ride to Williamsburg or Greenpoint and a bit over an hour to Manhattan (depending on the neighborhood).



If you live on the East Coast and decide that Amtrak is the best mode of transport then your destination will be Penn Station, New York. You'll arrive in Midtown Manhattan on 34th & 8th. Much of Penn Station that receives Amtrak trains has been recently renovated and is much improved from it's former gloominess. Cab rides vary depending on traffic, time of day, and destination. Brooklyn is about a 30-40 minute cab ride while downtown is about a 15-20 minute cab ride. All major subway lines run through Penn as well.
