How To Get There
If you are wondering how to get to Jone’s beach from your Glenwood apartment, there are very easy forms of transportation! If you have your own car, you can purchase a park pass with your concert ticket. The car ride from Manhattan is roughly 1:30-1:45 depending on what part of NYC you are leaving from. If you want to Uber or Lyft- those are great options, especially if you are planning on having a drink at the venue. If you want to take the train, which is probably the fastest option during rush hour traffic, you can take the LIRR to the Freeport stop and from there you can thaw the direct n88 bus to Jones beach which is only 20 min away! Or you can taxi/ uber from there.
