What is the best form of transportation to get to the Metropolitan Museum?

My boyfriend and I are going to be either spending the day or the night in New York and one of the places on our list to visit is the Metropolitan Museum. We won't be driving and we know the many forms of transportation in New York but would like to know the most efficient way of getting around without spending an arm and a leg.

    I'd recommend taking the subway! It may seem daunting at first, but it will get you there the fastest and cheapest ($2.50 each). If you are staying on the East Side of Manhattan, then take the green line uptown (4, 5 or 6) and get off at 86 Street. You'll have to walk a few blocks west (towards the park), but that's your best bet and there are beautiful homes to look at on the way. While you're in the area, if you're looking for a hole-in-the-wall restaurant, be sure to check out Earl's Beer & Cheese (http://wp.me/p4iPrh-1y) for a casual bite to eat.

    The Met is amazing, so enjoy! If, while you're in town, you need any additional restaurant recommendations, feel free to check out my New York City restaurant blog (http://wp.me/4iPrh), which is also on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/TheStraunt) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/TheStraunt).

      Thank you so much! I've been to New York countless times, just not on my own or with my boyfriend who has been to the Big Apple far less than I have. I really appreciate your recommending restaurants and your NYC restaurant blog. If we decide to go to Little Italy, is there a restaurant you recommend? · (0 likelikes)

    While I absolutely agree with the comment below about the Subway, NYC is also one of the world's great walking cities. Because it's laid out in a grid, it's almost impossible to get lost (except, maybe in the West Village!). If the weather's good, you're feeling fit and you aren't trying to cover too much distance, walking offers you so much more. There are iconic sights everywhere. Enjoy the museum - it's one of my favourites.

    Liza's answer is spot-on! If you'd like to read about some of the highlights of the museum, I did a Top Ten list of my favorite things at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art last spring.

    Use the MTA bus and subway. Day passes are available.
