Commuting from Downtown Stamford to NYC
The easiest and most efficient way to commute from Stamford to New York City is on the Metro North. The station is an easy 11-minute walk from Vela, and trains to the city run every 15 minutes. (Pro tip: download the TrainTime app, which allows you to buy tickets in advance and gives you access to schedules, GPS train tracking, real-time seat availability, and more.)
If you prefer to drive, your best bet is to hop on I-95 and I-278 to FDR, which will take you into Manhattan. The drive typically takes anywhere between 45 minutes and an hour—and sometimes longer, depending on time of day and intensity of traffic.
