  1. Which train do I take to get there ? I’m coming from Queens and have access to E F R and M trains.

  2. Hi Mitch,

    You could take the F or M to Bryant Park and walk a few blocks to Park Avenue. I suggest using Google Maps or the Citymapper app to put in your exact starting point for more accurate directions. Have fun at JapanFes!
