Record Fair in Brooklyn May 1-3?! I want to go to there, but how? Mass transit tips for those not accustomed to outer-borough travel: the closest subway to the Record Fair is the G train at Greenpoint Ave (less than 5 min walk to the Brooklyn Expo Center). Coming from Manhattan? Take the A train into Brooklyn and transfer to a Queens-bound G train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn (the L train will be down May 2-3).
