quick verification MoMA to Zuni

Hi everyone
I have a quick day in the city before I go to the airport for a 6:15 pm flight. I want to go to themuseum and eat lunch at Zuni Cafe. I am having a hard time figuring out if the two are walking distance apart.
Can anyone set me straight?

  1. It's a mile and a half with no hills. I've walked that many times, but if you're in a hurry or not up to walking that far you could take one of the vintage streetcars on Market St.

    1. A little over an hour walk - not necessarily through the prettiest part of town, but still interesting. You could walk there and cab back.

      1. Perfect! thank you for verifying that I was seeing what I was hoping i was seeing :)
        I think I will walk one leg and the vintage car up Market sounds fun for the other.
        thanks so much

        1. It's very walkable with some colorful sights to see, but there's a stretch that might be off putting to some visitors. The trolly car is a quick nice ride, and when pressed for time, I would suggest that instead.

          1. What is the fare for the trolley? Cash only? How frequent on weekends?

              $2 cash, every six or seven minutes.

                Unless you're old then I believe it's 75 cents. On the vintage line by the Ferry Building the stub they gave me was good for the ride back from Pier 39, Eat fast ride back free(seniors only). ;-)

                  Anyone can get a transfer, and they're good for a minimum of 1.5 hours (often more, depending on how the driver issues the transfers) in any direction.

                    Sorry I meant only the cheap fare,75 cents.
