Take the C or E train to 23rd Street. This will leave you on 8th Avenue, so you'll need to walk about three avenues west, until you hit the Hudson River/Chelsea Piers complex.

By Bus:
Take the cross town M23 bus west to the last stop: Chelsea Piers, Pier 62.

If you are planning to park at Chelsea Piers, the access road into Chelsea Piers' parking lots for Pier 61, 60, and 59 is at West 24th street. The access roads into Chelsea Piers parking are accessible if you are south bound on the West Side Hwy or west bound on 23rd Street. On 23rd street, take a right on 11th Avenue and a quick left on W. 24th street. Just keep your eyes peeled for the bus or taxi turn-in into Chelsea Piers and hang a right. Watch out for pedestrians and bikers in this area. Upon entering the parking garages on the other piers, you will have to take a ticket that you must pay to the lot attendants when you leave.
