An easy way is go over Goethals Bridge onto SI Xway for about 1 mile to exit 9 MLK jr. Pkwy. Take that to 2nd exit Forest Ave x13. Right onto Forest, 1st left onto Pt. Richmond Ave. Follow curves on Pt. Richmond Ave to Post Ave or Albion Pl. Right turn then 1st left onto Heberton.
Don't forget to stop at either Brothers Pizza or Deninos Pizza.
Good Luck... more
Old Town is pretty close to the Verrazano Bridge and local transit. I don't think the commute is bad at all.
How you will fell about the commute also depends on what you have been accustomed to in regard to commuting in general.
