My friends daughter is applying to Crane, which has a great reputation.

Her only negative is getting her daughter home to Long Island (or NYC) easily, if need be. I checked out the site and it seems the airport has limited service, none to this area at all.

Other than Greyhound or Amtrak (or obviously getting a ride) is there some other way we are missing, or an airport not so far away that she can fly downstate?

    The Crane School of Music is actually affiliated with SUNY Potsdam, not Plattsburgh!

    The airport in Potsdam isn't an option, unfortunately. I believe it only operates as a private landing strip. The major airports used are Ottawa, Montreal, and Syracuse. The airport in Burlington,VT is also an option!

    Greyhound may be a convenient travel method, but the trip would be pretty long. I looked up travel times, and anything between 8 - 10 hours is shown for duration (Potsdam to NYC). Not a good option for emergencies! I suggest looking into a bus/flight combo. The bus ride wouldn't be too long to a major airport, and I'm sure she'd be able to find a direct flight to the city.

    Good luck!

    Thanks. You are obviously right.

    Looks like getting to either the Syracuse or Montreal airports would be best.
