By train, you can take the LIRR out to Amityville. You want the trains going towards Babylon (the printed schedules are green).
If you take a car out there, just note that the Interboro Pkwy, by the way, has been called the Jackie Robinson Parkway for at least 10 years now. I believe there are still some signs up noting this, but I felt I should warn you just in case. ;)
If you do take the subway, don't take the M all the way to the end, since that will bring you a bit further north than you need to go. Get off at the second to last stop (Fresh Pond Rd./67th Ave.). It'll still be a little bit of a walk (about a mile), but not as bad. Once you get off, follow Fresh Pond Rd. south and bear left onto Cypress Hills St. Cross over Myrtle Ave. and Cooper Ave. and you should be right there.
