We strongly recommend John DeCristofaro’s write up on how to get to the Hall of Science:

By Airplane:

La Guardia Airport is about 10 minutes away from the Hall of Science by taxi.

JFK Airport will be about 45 minutes to an hour away depending on traffic by taxi.

By Subway:

Take the number 7 train to the 111th Street stop in Queens. Walk south on 111th Street until you reach 47th Avenue, the Hall of Science will be on your left.

The 7 train takes approximately an hour from Times Square.

By Car:

Please note that the parking lot will not be available for guests because Maker Faire setup will be in progress. For directions, ask Google.
