Thread: Quickest Way to go from Grand Central to Battey Park

  1. #1

    Default Quickest Way to go from Grand Central to Battey Park

    Is the subway the fastest way to get there? If so which line should I take?

    Thanks,

    Tony

    Yes. Take the Downtown 4 or 5 train to the Bowling Green station, which is across the street from Battery Park.

    Default Thanks Knight

    I appreciate it!

    Does it make a difference if I pick 4 or 5 or does it not matter?

    You're welcome. When exiting the Bowling Green station, be sure to glance across the street at Cass Gilbert's magnificent United States Customs House.

    Default Building and times

    I will have to check out that building.

    I was looking over the schedules for the 4 and 5 lines on mta.nyc.ny.us and it looks like there will be no problem getting from Grand to Battery at 7am because the subway looks like it gets to the station every few minutes.

    However - we had planned on returning from Battery Park to Grand Central at around 11:30am or Noon (Weekday) and there looks like there are no pickup times on the schedule in that timeframe

    Looks as though there is a gap in the subway service from like 10am to 3pm.I am sure this is because most people are traveling at rush hour. Is it difficult to catch a northbound subway around lunch time in battery park or brooklyn bridge area? I cant seem to find any times on the schedules

    Thanks again.

    Subway/bus "schedules" are pretty meaningless except to give a general idea of the frequency of service. The 4 and 5 trains are 2 of the busiest lines in the system and run 24/7 every few minutes except very late at night.

    And the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. An entrance fee is charged.
