How to go from JFK to Stony Brook ?

First of all take the train to Jamaica Station. Once at Jamaica Station, you need to follow the signs to the Long Island Railroad. After that, and then you look at the train schedule for the Port Jefferson Branch.

Take the train from JFK to Penn Station.
From Penn Station, take the LIRR (Long Island Railroad)
via the Port Jefferson line to Stony Brook.

Once at Penn, you can find schedules for LIRR- look for the blue schedules.
Safe Travels!
