    Staten Island and Queens are not really near Manhanttan. Is that where you are staying? Manhanttan?

    There has to be one closer, if you are.

    Let me clarify, Queens and SI are definitely in the area of NYC, but they are totally different areas. You'd have to take transport...

    Not explaining very well am I? :sorry:

    Use your hotel address and do a google map. You'll see the distance better that way.

    Looking like a subway to me.

    I wouldn't consider either location "unsafe" if that helps at all ML...but I will say both are a fair distance from where you're going to be, so be prepared for the cost.

    Yes, but again, be prepared for the cost. NYC is HUGE and the distances between boroughs can be much more than you may think. Subways are much more cost effective, but if you are traveling alone that might make you a little nervous.

    No. You need a ferry. Staten Island is just that, an Island (it's not just a place name, I mean). You can get a subway to the Staten Island terminal area, and then take the ferry.

    With four of you, it will be fine. There are maps of the routes at each subway location.

    Oh! You are welcome! :hug2: I just want you to have a great time in NYC. :yes:

    You know there is a Journey very close to WDW now? Could you wait until you come here to visit that shop? :unsure:

    I think it's a bit of a different shop, Tink...Justice is like a Limited Too (if you know what that is?) It's a little girls clothing store.

    They do really trendy wearable clothes for girls which are ideal for Beth. She can not wear zip trousers and needs elasticated waist. I did order over the phone but my order got lost in the post. I gave up and got our money back. So my plan is to hit it hard :p015: whilst in New York.
    I have worked out its 7.1 miles from the ferry terminal on Staten Island. I know the subway will be cheaper but in case we can not get to grips with the subway, do you think this will cost a lot in a cab.

    Ooops, sorry! I did write Journey when I meant Justice. Journey is a shoe store. :oops: :sorry: Justice is the place for little girls.

    7 miles in a cab is going to be pretty pricey. There isn't a subway to bring you closer to the terminal? :unsure: DON'T take the BUS!!! :eek: I love, adore and am passionate about NYC, but would never, ever get on one of the public transit buses. :eek:
