Buy your MetroCard (having an old one will save $1) at ticket machine just inside the door as you exit LaGuardia to public transportation. Machine should be easy to spot - or ask someone to point you there. Check link in message below to decide which form of payment - 7-day unlimited or pay-by-ride.

THEN - IMPORTANT - wander out to M60 waiting area (heading west to Harlem/NYC) and THERE, insert your MetroCard in the machine to obtain a paper M60 SBS ticket. MOST TIMES, no one will check. BUT ONCE, we were not allow to board without the paper ticket and the bus left before we were able to quickly get paper tickets from the machine.

Recently we've been using GPS on our phones to alert us for NW Subway stop at Astoria/Hoyt/31st. Usually, people w/luggage get off there and driver announces - you can ask them to ;) Exit and climb stairs to subway platform. Take the N or W through the tunnel into Manhattan, get off at Lexington/59th and take the 4,5,6 Subway Downtown to Grand Central.

OR - and we've never - stay on the M60 bus across into Harlem and Upper E/W Side, then get off at 125th (and Lexington) and take the 4,5,6 Subway Downtown to Grand Central. ;) Colleen
