I was wondering this. The 6 train goes directly to 68th street in 40 mins, then you have to walk from the train station to the hospital. Is it better to drive? I would not want to get there late! Please help.

I said the same thing to my husband about driving there instead of taking the train. He said that there isnt any parking , but he just started this week. I know they said that there was a discount for parking , but I dont know if they have there own parking area. So far now he takes the 5 train to the 6 train . I rahter just drive, but thats me.

I know this sounds goofy. But if you are in a pinch-i.e. late for work just take a cab from the train to the hospital. I did that quite a bit!! Forget the car unless you work nights.

Do you mean Columbia Presbyterian or Weill Cornell? You would take the 5/6 for Cornell, or would take the A/1 train for CP..... I am also wondering the same thing, except I'm commuting to MSCHONY from NJ. NJTransit to Penn Station, to A train to 168th St. We're talking a 1hr40min commute..... gaaaaaaaa.

Oh well. I guess commuting to CP from Brooklyn would be out of the question.

I used to work at WCMC and taking the train is best. When you get off the 6 there is a bus that will take you from Lexington to York. It usually comes about every 5 minutes but sometimes it can take a little while to load up because there are tons of people who take it. The walk isn't that bad as long as you aren't wearing heels...ten minutes tops. The only thing that stinks about it is that York is by the water and in the winter it's freezing!
