The meeting is to take place at the Synod House of the Cathedral of St. John the Devine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue at 110th Street--one block east of the 110th Street stop on the #1 and #9 trains. (However, note that the 110th St. station is currently closed on the uptown side; instead, you can go to either the 103rd St. stop and walk uptown, or the 116th St. stop and walk downtown.) The 1 and 9 are the local trains on the 7th Avenue line (express trains are #2 or #3). (While references are to the #1 and #9, note that the #9 doesn't run on weekends.)

Subway fares have changed since the last iPNB meeting in NY. It now costs $2 for NYC buses and trains. Tokens are no longer sold. Coins are acceptable on the buses, however, the "free" transfer will not be usable on the train, only on another bus. Metrocards can be used on buses, MUST be used on trains and may be purchased at some neighborhood stores and at subway stations. Token booth clerks accept cash only; machines accept cash and credit/debit cards. There are two basic kinds of metrocards: pay-per-ride and unlimited:--Pay-per-ride cards can be bought in preset denominations of $10, from neighborhood stores or in any whole-dollar amount from a token booth-clerk or machine. Two dollars is deducted for each use, except that "free" transfers are allowed to or from a bus within 2 hours of the start of the trip. One-trip cards valued at $2 can be purchased only from subway machines and are only good 2 hours from time of transaction.

Unlimited cards may be $7 1-day (aka Fun Pass)types which allow unlimited usage for one person from the time you begin using it until 3am the next calendar day or 7-day unlimited card for $21 (same cost as three one-day passes). If you opt for the 7-day card, give it away when you're leaving town. The recipient can use it until midnight of the seventh day after initial use.
