OPTIONS MAKE IT EASY

When traveling to the world’s busiest convention center, it’s good to have options. Within New York City, public transportation is always a quick and affordable way to go—and the new 7 Subway line extension across the street from the Javits Center makes the trip even more convenient.  

 

If you’re coming by car or truck, virtually all roads lead to the Javits Center. Plus, there’s plenty of off-site parking within walking distance of the iconic facility. And if you’re looking to burn some calories while blazing a trail to our front door, take advantage of Citi Bike, New York’s new bike sharing system. The NY Waterway is also a convenient and quick way to get to the Javits Center from across the Hudson River, and only one block from the Javits Center.

 

No matter what mode of transportation you use, we think you’ll agree that getting to the Javits Center has never been easier.

While there is no parking garages at the Javits Center there are many parking garages throughout the Javits Center vicinity. See the parking tab for locations and phone numbers of convenient parking near us. We are located on 11th Avenue between 34th and 40th Streets.
