Re: Newark to Times Square?
Hi -- I can help you out I live in NYC and take the train from Newark all the time. Here's what you do -- get on New Jersey Transit at the Newark station (ask anyone at your conference how to get there). Take the next train that comes through Newark to New York Penn Station. You will then be at 34th street between 7th and 8th avenue. You can walk to Times Square, but it is even easier to take the subway. When you arrive in Penn Stattion, follow the signs for the 1 and 9 subway line. Take the subway UPTOWN one stop to Times Square and there you are!
The Empire State building is very close to Penn Station -- 34 th street and 5th avenue. So you'll be right near Penn Stattion to get back to Newark!
