Any advice on getting to the Beacon Theater by train from Jersey?

What's the easiest way? Go to NY Penn, then take another train or a cab? Beacon is 2.4 miles from Penn. Thank you.

    My friend, since you're traveling on NJ Transit into the City, the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to get from Penn Station to the Beacon Theater, which is located on West 74th Street and Broadway, is by subway.

    Take the uptown (northbound) number 2 or 3 subway lines, which is the red line on the subway map at the link below, from 34th Street-Penn Station to 72nd Street.

    Once you exit the subway at 72nd Street, walk two blocks north along Broadway from the subway station to the theater as indicated on the map at the link below.

    The trip by subway from Penn Station to the 72nd Street take around 10 minutes, plus an addition two to three minutes walk from the 72nd Street subway station to the theater.

    The one way fare on the subway is $2.25 with a pay per ride (regular fare) MetroCard or $2.50 with SingleRide ticket.

    I hope this information is very helpful.

    Good luck

    Take the NJT train or the PATH to Penn Station.

    While still within Penn Station, follow the signs for the uptown-bound 1, 2 and 3 trains.

    Take whichever comes in first (the 1 is a local while the 2 and 3 are express, so they will be quicker by a few minutes).

    Get off at the 72nd Street station.

    The theater is a very short walk up Broadway from the subway station.
