Directions

Getting To NERAC X:
We are closer than you think!  NERAC X is only a mere 1.5 hour drive from Manhattan, and a 1 hour ferry ride from Connecticut!  To get here, follow the suggestions below.

From Manhattan, Pennsylvania, and the South:

Drive:
Take the Long Island Expressway (LIE,) or Sunrise Highway, East to the address above.  NERAC is at Exit 70 off of the LIE.

The Hampton Jitney:
This is a little known, but awesome way to travel to and from the city.  The Jitney is a luxury motor coach bus that operates 7-days a week between the East End of Long Island and Manhattan.  The Jitney has hourly stops at destinations all over the East End, including a stop in Riverhead, only 5 minutes from the aquarium!  It only costs $19 one-way from Manhattan, and you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Book the Jitney at: http://www.hamptonjitney.com/

The Long Island Rail Road:
The good old LIRR connects Long Island to the rest of the world through Penn Station.  This train offers frequent stops all over Long Island, including Riverhead.  It costs $19-$27 one way (depending on the time of day,) and is pretty reliable at avoiding delays (no traffic!,) but not nearly as comfortable as the Jitney.  Note, there are no trains to Riverhead on the weekends.  (Try the Jitney!)  http://lirr42.mta.info/

From Connecticut, Massachusetts, and the North!

The Cross Sound Ferry:
This is a great way to get to Long Island quickly while avoiding the bottle-neck traffic of the Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges.  The Cross Sound Ferry travels between New London and Orient Point, but Orient Point is still a 45 minute drive to Riverhead, so plan accordingly.  It costs $15.75/pp one-way if you travel on foot, and $55/car one-way if you bring your vehicle.  https://www.longislandferry.com/Schedules/Schedules.aspx

Drive:
Take the Long Island Expressway (LIE,) or Sunrise Highway, East to the address above.  NERAC is at Exit 70 off of the LIE.
Airports:
MacArthur Airport in Islip (ISP) is our closest airport and hosts flights from Southwest Airlines and US Airways.  ISP is only a 30 minute drive from NERAC, and this helps you avoid all the traffic associated with the NYC area.

JFK and LGA are the next closest airports and they are close to NYC.  JFK connects directly with the Long Island Railroad, which allows you to get out east directly off of your flight without a car.  (Note, the LIRR does not have train service to Riverhead on the weekend.)  LGA is not linked with the LIRR.

Feel free to call Laura Birenbaum, the LIRA Vice President, for more information on the event:  (408) 930-8777

Safe Travels and see you soon!!
