Thanks for the glowing review, Murray- it was great to host you upon your arrival in NYC! Regarding the G line, unfortunately they were conducting scheduled maintenance work during your stay, which has been completed.
Thanks for the kind review! Regarding getting to Manhattan, the subway is less than 2 blocks from the loft and you can get to "the city" in as little as 15-20 minutes. Aside from the subway line that is 2 blocks away, there is also easy access to more than 7 other subways, trains and buses to get you anywhere in the NYC area. The next time you visit, I'd be happy to help you better understand our extensive public transit system.
