The total trip to Princeton Record Exchange, including transfer, takes 90 minutes or less from Penn Station, Manhattan.  Both NJ Transit and Amtrak trains leave from Penn Station (34th St. and 8th Ave) and arrive at Princeton Junction which is within a few miles of Princeton Record Exchange.

From Princeton Junction you have a few options to get to our store.

  • You may take a smaller shuttle train (called "the dinky") to Princeton's local train station. This shuttle train meets the incoming trains from New York City and takes about 5 minutes. 
  • From the local Princeton station, take a 8 minute walk (see map and step by step directions below), or a short taxi ride (for around $8) to our store.
  • Alternatively, you may take a taxi directly from Princeton Junction (for around $15).

Amtrak provides the fastest service to Princeton Junction, but because their trains are infrequent and significantly more expensive, we recommend using New Jersey Transit, Northeast Corridor Line.  Please see links below.
