how to get to Manhatten from Brooklyn Cruise Terminal

help!!

We are arriving on the Queen Mary 2 into Brooklyn Cruise Terminal on in June. How do we get from there to our hotel the Edison in Manhattan. We cannot find any direction about public transport from the terminal. The QM2 site goes on about taxis... I cannot think all the people disembarking will take a taxi or that there would be enough for them. We are used to travelling around New York by public transport but this one has got us stumped. Can anyone advise? I have this vision of 1000 people all trying to get into a couple of taxis or all rushing for the same bus!! It will be back to reality with a bump but then we have the pleasure of New York again!!

And the Edison again!!

Many thanks

Many thanks

Unfortunately, the public transportation to Red Hook is very poor, with the only link being the unpredictable B61 bus. Your best bet would be to take a cab or a car service. You can try Family Car Service - (718) 596-0664 or Arecebo Car Service. (718) 783-6465.

#1 answers your question. Both the Brooklyn and Bayonne ports have poor transit links. It's the B61 bus or a car service. You're not going to find a better answer.

Hello -

Looking forward to meeting you as well- Will have to arrange a meeting point on board!

.We booked into Wellington Hotel -anywhere near yours? Could share a car?

Have been scouring internet and finally heard back from Brooklyn Port Authority this

.morning - apparently lots of yellow and black cabs available without having to pre-book. ( Only hope this true as seems to contradict other comments).

Car service is a great idea OR

All of you, you can also take a look at the day tours that a cruise usually sponsors that will drop you off near your hotels.

OR I confess I know the owner who is a great tour guide but if you find a 3rd couple this might be fun and reasonable

there are hundreds of taxis lined up that day, dropping off passengers, and picking them up for the trip to Manhattan, and being that it is the primary mode of trnsportation, it is a very organized process. The Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel connects Brooklyn to Manhattan, and it is just a few blocks from the terminal, so you will be in Manhattan within minutes.

sidebar: you may want to consider a different hotel. Edison is somewhat dumpy.
