Public Transportation within New York City

Take the A, C, 1 or 9 subway to 168th Street, or take the M2, M3, M4, M5, or M100 bus to NI. Fares are $2.75 for both the subway and buses. Subway trains require Metrocards and can be purchased at the station booth. Buses require Metrocards or exact change; bills are not accepted.


The most direct way to NI from most locations is to follow directions leading to the George Washington Bridge, then exit onto the Henry Hudson Parkway, and then onto Riverside Drive (south). From there, continue south and turn left onto 165th Street (the first left south of the bridge). Proceed one block and turn right onto Ft. Washington Avenue, then turn right into the Medical Center parking garage. For details about traveling to and from area airports only, call 1-800-AIRLINK.
