Outside McDonald's Restaurant, 160 Broadway between Liberty and Courtlandt Streets, New York City
Because of hurricane Sandy, some of the subway locations are closed; Fulton Street subway station opened.
Here are new mass transit directions:
If the MTA doesn't have the South Ferry station cleared by New Year's, you'll have to take Cortlandt Street out of the mix.
Wall Street for the 2, 3, 4, 5 leaves people a little closer and at a less confusing station.
Change at Brooklyn Bridge from the 6 to the 4,5.
J to Broad Street, but if it's a weekend schedule they'll have to change at Brooklyn Bridge to the 4, 5.
1 train to Rector Street -- or change at Chambers for 2, 3.
The M5 bus goes right down Broadway.
The M20 cuts through Battery Park City; you'd have to get off before it turns west on Chambers.
You should check the mta.info site for up-to-date mass transit information.
