The Easy Ways to Get to the 147th International AES Convention at the Javits Center
There are a few good options to get to the Javits Center from your hotel for the AES 147th International Convention. 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.
The number 7 Flushing line now brings riders right to the Javits Center and makes three additional stops at key Manhattan locations: Times Square, 42nd Street at Bryant Park/Fifth Avenue, and Grand Central Terminal.
The 7 train connects with transfer stations to subway lines that go to Penn Station, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, and the AirTrain from JFK Airport, to facilitate travel for people coming to the AES Convention from outside the area.
