Map & Directions
The cheapest way is also convenient if you have luggage, although it will take a little longer. Take the Q10 bus to the last stop in Kew Gardens. Cross Queens Blvd and take the Q60 bus to 48th Street.
If you want to take the train, the use the airtrain to Jamaica Station, transfer to the Manhattan-bound E-train to Roosevelt Avenue/Jackson Heights, and transfer to the Times Square bound number 7 train to 46/Bliss Street.
From La Guardia:
Take the Q33 or any bus that will take you to Roosevelt Avenue and transfer to either the Manhattan-bound 7 train exiting at 46/Bliss Street or the Manhattan bound Q32 bus exiting at 48th Street and Queens Blvd. Keep in mind a cab from LGA is only $15 and about 15 minutes.
Take the shuttle train to New York Penn Station. If you have a lot of luggage and don't mind a longer ride where you don't have to transfer or climb stairs, take the Q32 bus directly to 47th Street and Queens Blvd. Otherwise, take the 1, 2, or 3 train uptown 1 stop to Times Square and transfer to the local number 7 train to 46/Bliss Street. Keep near the front of the train and exit the 47th Street side on the North side of Queens Blvd.
Once at 47th or 48th Streets walk a block North to 43rd Avenue and we are in the middle of the block between 47th and 48th Streets. The house number is 47-09 on 43rd Avenue.
More about taking the bus from Penn Station in Manhattan:
The bus is definitely more user friendly and the bus driver and even passengers are eager to help. The bus driver announces stops although he will probably say 46th rather 47th Street. There will be a big 'Welcome to Sunnyside' sign on your right side on 46th Street. It's kind of easy to get a sense of where you are as the streets run sequential along the stretch of Queens Blvd. that the bus will be on. You will cross over the bridge at 59th Street in Manhattan and once you pass Queens Plaza and another small bridge you will see 33rd Street and the streets just go up from there. Another nice thing about the bus is that you won't have to cart your luggage around up and down stairs and through underground walkways. To get the Q32 from Penn exit at the center corridor looking for the 7th Avenue signs. As you emerge from the escalator you will see the bus stop and maybe a bus sitting there
across 7th Avenue and on 32nd Street. 32nd Street is a one way street that goes in the direction you will be facing as you come off the escalator. At any time, if you have any trouble, don't hesitate to call.
To recognize my place look for the building that looks like the picture. It is the only building on the block with an open front porch that is easy to see.
