Trip Planning

 

GETTING TO NYC
Midtown Manhattan is easily accessible.

PLANE
If you choose to fly into New York City (NYC), the closest airport is LaGuardia (LGA), but both Newark International (EWR) and John F. Kennedy International (JFK) airports are also nearby. From all airports, you can either take public transportation or a taxi into Manhattan. SuperShuttles are also available at each airport and are usually more affordable. For more details, click here.

TRAIN
Taking the train is one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods of travel to NYC. If you live near an Amtrak station, we advise you to check it out — it’s often quicker AND cheaper to take the train than to fly. You can view itineraries and purchase tickets by visiting Amtrak’s website. The train will take you directly to Penn Station in Manhattan.

AUTOMOBILE
If you live close to NYC, driving is also an affordable option. Parking at some venues may be difficult, however, so you’ll probably want to leave the car at your hotel or a parking lot outside the city and take public transportation into Manhattan.

 

GETTING AROUND NYC
Each GO PRO/NYC session is held at a different venue in Manhattan. All sites are located near each other, however, so getting around will be easy and fairly inexpensive. Several sites are within walking distance, but for those that are further apart, we advise either taking the subway or hailing a taxi.
