    Staten Island

    Advertisements



    I'm wondering how long it takes once you get off the ferry in staten island to get to the hospital (475 seaview location)
    I realize google maps is there to use but I would like to hear from someone who has actually done it. Google maps hasn't been that accurate recently timewise.

    Thanks

    The ferry is in sync with the train line that is there, so when you get off the ferry, you walk to the train, and it will be there waiting. Then you go to the 6th stop, which will be about 10-15 minutes? Then the walk from the train is about 1/2 mile, so depending on how fast you walk, probably another 10 minutes. So in total from the moment you step off the ferry to when you walk in to the hospital, I'd estimate 25-30 minutes. Of course 1/2 mile walk in the winter is not always pleasant, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Staten Island is a fairly good place to rotate in my opinion. At least for medicine and medicine electives. The surgery program has changed since I was there, so I can't really give you advice on that.

    From my experience taking the ferry and then train is that it is pretty reliable and like the post above me says, it should take about 25 min
