Hi, we are staying at Hilton Times Square close to Port Authority at 42 St & 8 Ave in a couple of months. I know if we take the Air-train to Jamaica, the E train will get us closest but I'm concerned about elevators/escalators at 42 St. I see on the Port Authority website it shows an elevator, is this accessible from the E train? Or would it be easier to take the LIRR to Penn station and get a taxi to our hotel?
Also for our return, we have an 8:15 am (domestic-Delta) flight from JFK, do you think it will be okay to take the E train so early? Would we go to PA bus terminal to access the elevator? Or again, should I consider the LIRR? In either case, what time would you recommend leaving the hotel?
Thank you in advance for any help.
