If you take the train from EWR,
first board the AirTrain and take it to the
T train station.
Buy a ticket
(vending machine; credit card) from Newark Liberty Airport to either
Princeton Junction (if you are not staying in the Nassau Inn) or to
Princeton (if you are staying in the Nassau Inn, or you want to go
directly to the physics building). There is a transfer at
Princeton Junction to the "dinky" to travel the last 2 miles onto
Driving EWR ->
Princeton: Exit the airport (via a labyrinth barely marked
roads) to Rte 1 South/Elizabeth. But quickly follow the exit
to the New Jersey Turnpike. Pick up a ticket at the toll
booth and get onto the Turnpike going South (either the car or truck
lanes are OK). You are getting on at exit 13A. Get
off at exit 9 => about 20-25 miles. Pay the toll and
stay to the right onto 18 towards New Brunswick/Trenton.
Quickly merge to the left before the fork, but then get into the far
right lane to exit onto Rt 1 South towards Trenton. Once on
Rte 1, it's a straight shot of about 15 miles to the Princeton area.
Driving PHL ->
Princeton. Exit the airport onto I-95 North towards
Philadelphia. Stay on I-95 thru the center of Philly and on
into New Jersey, some 40 miles. Do not get caught in the left
exit into Philly center near the Ben Franklin bridge., But do take the
left fork = I-95 some 15 miles past Philly center. Cross a
bridge over the Delaware into New Jersey (close to the so-called
Washington Crossing) and circle
Trenton on I-95 until you can exit to Rte 1 North. Then it's
about 5 miles on Rte 1 to Princeton, and 3 more miles to the Rte 1
into New York JFK, you can rent a car, or take a train. For
the latter, first board the AirTrain to Jamaica Station (NOT to Howard
Beach). At Jamaica station you can either take the LIRR (Long
Island Railroad) or the subway to New York Penn Station. The
LIRR is much quicker and a few dollars more. At the Penn
Station, you must find the NJ transit trains and buy a ticket (vending
machine/credit card, or long line) to either Princeton Junction or
Princeton as discussed above. If you still have a
sense of direction while inside Penn Station, the LIRR trains arrive in
the northeast corner, and the NJT trains leaves from the southwest
corner => make your way diagonally across the station.
-> Princeton. Exit the airport towards New
York City (not eastern Long Island), but exit onto the Belt Parkway
WEST just beyond the boundary of the (large) airport. Take
the Belt about 15 miles (thru the Coney Island area) and exit onto the
Verrazano Bridge (toll). This takes you to Staten Island,
still part of New York City. Cross Staten Island on I-278 and
go into New Jersey via either of 2 options:
Goethals Bridge (maybe closed for repairs), and immediately after this
onto the New Jersey Turnpike south (getting on at exit 13).
Continue to Princeton as per driving from EWR.
Outerbridge Crossing (might also be closed for repairs -- but one of
Goethals and Outerbridge is always open). For this, get onto
440 South and go 5-6 miles down Staten Island. Cross the
bridge into New Jersey and stay on 440/I-287 about 6 miles
and exit onto Rte 1 South to Trenton (first go past exits from
I-287 onto the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey
Turnpike). It's about 20 mi. on Rte 1 to the
following are options
