View Full Version : From Rockleigh NJ to NYC Please HELP!

September 6th, 2005, 02:07 PM
Hi. I have never been to NY but will be going to Rockleigh NJ with my boyfriend for one of his business trips. Is it easy to get to NYC from there by subway? I googled it and it is about 30 miles. I tried looking up the subway system but it only goes to Bronx.

Does anyone know where I can find this info?

Is it safe for me to go to NYC/Subway alone?

The subway doesn't go to New Jersey. You should look into the New Jersey PATH trains:


You will be fine on the subway.

Rockleigh, NJ is not served by PATH trains. But it probably is by NJ Transit (by rail or bus) njtransit.com (http://njtransit.com/), with service to Manhattan's Penn Station and Port Authority Bus Terminal, both of which have connections to the subway system. If you're old enough to have a boyfriend, you're old enough to ride the subway by yourself.

What's 40 miles from where you'll be staying?

It looks like there's a bus from Rockleigh to the city:
