How to get to the Record Fair

Record Fair in Brooklyn April 28th-30th?! I want to go to there, but how?

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 L train to Brooklyn and transfer to a Queens-bound G train at Lorimer St
  • Take the A train into Brooklyn and transfer to a Queens-bound G train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn
  • Or take the 7 or E train to Court Square/23rd St in Queens and transfer to a Brooklyn-bound G train

Where’s my bill?

Pledged to the WFMU Marathon and still waiting for your bill? Fear not! We’re still working on it and hope to send out bills soon via e-mail to everyone who made an unpaid pledge. Thanks for your patience!
