Lower Manhattan streets and subway stops can be confusing, and maintenance and construction often result in re-routed subway service. Check out the MTA site for their Weekend Guide to Lower Manhattan, their interactive Weekender advisory diagram, and information on any other service changes during the week. Here are some tips to get you to our door directly:
SUBWAY: Take the 4 or 5 (Green Line) to Bowling Green. Walk west, toward the Hudson River, along the park-side of Battery Park. Follow the street around the bend and you'll come to the Museum's entrance, directly across the street from the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
SUBWAY: Take the 1 (Red Line) or the R (Yellow Line) to South Ferry-Whitehall Street. From the Ferry you can walk alongside Battery Park (on the park-side) directly to the Museum. When you see the Museum of Jewish Heritage, we're right across the street. Although it's a bit more difficult, you can also get off either line at the Rector Street station and follow the directions below.
SUBWAY: Take the 1 or R to Rector Street. Take Rector Street west (downhill) until you get to the West Side Highway. Here, make a left, and walk another block, crossing the intersection at the light for the Parking Garage and Tunnel Exit. Immediately after crossing this intersection, cross the Highway at the light. This will take you into Battery Park City, where the first north/south street will be Battery Place. You'll want to take a left (walk south) on Battery Place, and walk three blocks or so to the Museum's entrance, at 39 Battery Place, across the street from the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
BUS: The M20 is the 7th Avenue bus, which will stop in front of the Museum of Jewish Heritage, directly across the street from the Museum. The M15 (Second Avenue), M15 SBS, and M5 (Fifth Avenue) buses will take you to South Ferry-Whitehall Street (Whitehall/South Streets), at which point you can follow the South Ferry instructions, above.
