I work for MLB and I'll be working the All-Star Game in July. I'm in charge of setting up transportation from Yankee Stadium to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center all week long. Which #subway train(s) is/are the best ones to take? Thanks.

that's a tough one because the javits center is at least 3 huge blocks + 3 or 4 short blocks from any subway station, one way to do it is from the stadium have them take the d to 42 st or 34 st (the javits is in between) and then take the west bound xtown bus which should take you close or take the D to 59/columbus circle, switch to an A train to 42 st and walk the rest of the way, PM me I know a gal in your NY office who should know her way around

The 4 train will stop at the Stadium if you're coming from the East Side.

The B train will stop at the Stadium if you're coming from the West Side. That's only during rush hours and to go that way, either stay on the B the whole way or take the D and change for the B at 145th Street.

From Yankee Stadium, take the D or B train to Columbus Circle and transfer to the A train to 34th Street. You can either walk to the Javits Center from 34th and 8th or catch the crosstown bus for the remainder of the trip.

Sure wish they had that extension for the 7 train installed now - it's supposed to go to Javits.

But yeah, from Yankee Stadium, you take the Manhattan-bound D (which is underground) to 59th Street/Columbus Circle - which I believe is only 4 stops.

At 59th, transfer to the A (same platform) and take that to 34th Street/Penn Station/MSG.

Exit the subway here and you can either walk (which is going to take at LEAST 12-15 mins) or take the M34 bus to Javits. Since this is in July and it's probably going to be HOT, the bus is probably the way to go.

Take either the 4 or D (Manhattan-bound) to 42 st and then take a m42 bus to Javits Center or take the D to 34 st-Harold Square and take the m34 bus to javits.

The main thing is getting to either 42 St or 34 St and taking the buses to Javits from there.

You can also take the 6 to 33 St and walk uptown 1 block to 34th and take the bus but that'll take too long because the 6 is local
