Hi Kate:

Not rqf, but thought I could help. Most convenient would be Grand Central. From there you take the 6 train to Spring to be just at the north of Little Italy or to Canal to be in the heart of Chinatown.

Make sure you take a look at the MTA's(transit authority)new site , which has the most up to date subway maps

KT's advice is best, but if you're already in another part of town, you can easily get to within a few blocks of where you want to be using any of several diffrent lines--Lower Manhattan is pretty narrow

Just a note about getting help from the person selling the tickets. I tried that many times and seldom if ever could even understand what the person said. Either they mumbled, spoke with such an accent, or just rambled off so quickly I simply didn't have a clue what they were talking about. I finally picked up a free subway map at the tourist office near Times Square so I could figure out where I was going. The subway used to really intimidate me, but after my list trip I have gained some self-confidence. But I'll still say that out of the 20 or more subway systems I have used throughout the world, New York's is still the hardest to use -- even though it's in my own country and in my language!

Take the #6 train (a local) from Grand Central station to CAnal Street (stop after Spring mentioned in another note).
Canal Stree is dividing line between Chinatown and Little Italy. Little Italy is north of Canal; Chinatown is south of CAnal.

There is a Prince Street station on the N and R lines. I have no idea as to how far the station is from the exhibit. You can't get the N or R train at Gr. Central. To get an N or R train take the shuttle from Gr. Central to Times Square and follow signs to the N and R trains. It is a short walk once off the shuttle.
Best way to get to Little Italy/Chinatown from Prince Street is to walk or go back to the Prince Street station and take an N or R one stop to Canal Street. I would walk
