I’ve been invited for a speaking engagement on the east coast for the 26th of March. I don’t go that way often and when I do, the client arranges everything. This time, I’m going to New Haven CT where they expect adults to figure it out for themselves. Heh, operative word being “adult”, problematic if your not-so-inner child runs the show. As such, I could use some help orienting to where I need to go if you live out that way or travel thereabouts frequently.
My contact is a love but she’s frequently busy. She says:
You can fly into one of 5 airports: JFK, Laguardia, Newark, Bradley (Hartford) or Tweed (New Haven).
If you arrive at one of the 3 NY airports (JFK, Newark, Laguardia), you may wish to taxi to Grand Central, and then take the Metro North train to New Haven. From the New Haven station, you can taxi a very short distance to 241 Elm Street.
She makes it sound so easy but the choices of NY airports are boggling to me; I confuse easily and need the simplest itinerary possible. My question is: if costs are comparable, which is the best airport considering the cost and complexity of getting to Grand Central Station? And is there only one “North” train? I’d think there’d be many. And then I fret about getting back in time to catch a flight. Do the trains leave New Haven regularly? Please couch your responses in terms understandable to a six year old because although I fool everyone, my executive functioning skills are quite poor.
Also, I would be amenable to hanging around in NY an extra day to meet people but I couldn’t possibly arrange the logistics myself.
