Thank you Michael for nice words. Looking forward to hosting you and your daughter again if you come back to New York.
For those travelers who are more familiar with New York - both B and D orange lines are coming within 10 minutes walking distance from apartment. If you wish to safe on taxi and don;t mind walking uphill - and for whatever reason you cannot catch the C or 1 rain - this is the solution that costs you $2.50 instead of taxi. However it is correct that the closest train is C train! Next one being train #1.
If you take A express you have to change across the platform to C for one stop.
All this is included in the description -so please read carefully.
Also - it is quite normal to get lost on the subway in New York for all first comers :-) So just treat is as one of adventures.
