your best bet it to probably take the Qm2 or the Qm2a, express bus, the fare is 5.50 and it has many different stops in Whitestone, including willets point by the Mcdonalds and may other locations. Its about a 25min commute. It goes al through out Midtown.

Not knowing the exact start location, you can take the bus to the train, and use a Metrocard--for more detailed information, consider a Google search, Google Maps, etc., also see link below.....

There is an Express Bus Line that will take you to mid town. There bus goes on 6th. Ave. and 3rd. Ave. Seven days a week . Rush hour they are available very frequently ,off hours every half hour. It is the most convenient way into Manhattan.

You can also take a bus to Main Street Flushing, or drive to LIRR in Bayside (near by).

Some quick general ideas;

- Q15/15A to Main St; then take the 7 train to 42nd St (Grand Central Station, 5th Ave, or Times Square)

- Drive over to the LIRR station (Bayside or Broadway); a 25 minute ride into Penn Station

Good luck,

Whitestone is a great neighborhood!

Check out http://www.hopstop.com it works sort of like mapquest but you can plot your commute using the subway,bus, or taxi service, it will even count the blocks for you.
