Travel by air
John F. Kennedy International (JFK) is New York’s largest airport and the top international air passenger gateway in the United States. Located in the Queen’s borough, it is about 15 miles outside Manhattan, but traffic is often heavy and unpredicable. NYC taxis offer a flat rate to/from Manhattan. Depending on the traffic and time of day, the train is often the best option between Manhattan and JFK. AirTrain stops at every JFK terminal and connects with both the NYC Subway (Howard Beach and Jamaica stations) and Long Island Railroad (Jamaica Station).
LaGuardia (LGA) is the closest to Midtown and Upper Manhattan, and thus preferred by some travelers. LaGuardia is largely a domestic airport, with some flights to/from Canada and limited long-distance flights. It has the least convenient mass transit connections, but metered taxis are readily available and relatively cheap. The new Q70 Express Bus goes from LGA to the Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Av/74th St/Broadway subway station where there are connections to the E, F, M, R, and 7 subway lines. The bus makes one more stop at Woodside for LIRR connections, before heading back to the airport. The M60 city bus from 106th and Broadway for $2.50 goes to LGA via Broadway, 125th St. and the Triborough Bridge directly to LGA and stops at all terminals. You can also take the M60 from the airport to the Astoria Blvd station for connections to the N/Q subway lines.There are also private buslines going from LGA to midtown for about $15.00.
Newark-Liberty International (EWR) in New Jersey is the closest to lower Manhattan. International flights into this hub can be cheaper than those to JFK. The best route into Manhattan, especially at high traffic times of the day, is via New Jersey Transit trains, which runs frequently and quickly between the airport and New York's Pennsylvania station. Newark's airport rail station is serviced byNewark AirTrain, which stops at every terminal. Of the three larger NYC-area airports, taxis to/from Newark will cost the most and will often include excess fees given NYC taxis can't pick up passengers across state lines in Newark, and vice versa.
Macarthur Airport (ISP)
Westchester County Airport (HPN) http://airport.westchestergov.com/ in White Plains;
Stewart Airport (SWF) http://www.panynj.gov/airports/swf-gr... in Newburgh- these are smaller suburban airports.
Travel by train
Travelers along the east coast corridor from Boston to Washington, D.C. usually find Amtrak the most efficient way to get to New York; reason is that you don't risk the flight delays common especially at Newark and La Guardia, or the traffic jams that make it advisable to leave ample time to get between the city and its three airports.
Amtrak, Long Island Railroad and New Jersey Transit trains run into Pennsylvania Station, directly under Madison Square Garden (at 7th or 8th Avenue between West 32nd and 33rd Streets). Popular trains fill up quickly during rush hour, so go online or call for reservations. You can grab your ticket at one of the station’s electronic kiosks.
Visitors from Westchester and Connecticut can take Metro North rail lines into the beautifully restored Grand Central Terminal in Midtown at 42nd Street and Park Avenue. An architectural treasure and tourist attraction in itself, Grand Central Terminal is home to a variety of upscale eateries and shops.
Travel by bus
Many regional bus services use the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 8th Avenue and West 41st and 42nd Streets. Visitors from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania orDelaware might consider Peter Pan, one of the terminal’s oldest discount bus services. For frequent service from Boston, Buffalo, Toronto, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Baltimore or Washington, many opt for Megabus. Frugal riders can compromise comfort for a $15 (or cheaper) ticket on “Chinese Buses” that arrive and depart in Chinatown. The comfortable Hampton Jitney serves Long Island visitors and the Hampton Luxury Liner goes to and from the Hamptons.
Travel by car
New York’s highways allow relatively easy access to the heart of Manhattan, but heavy traffic can make driving an intimidating experience. It’s difficult to find parking within the city and usually expensive if you do. Getting to New York City by car is not recommended.
Travel by boat
New York City is an important passenger seaport, and travelers can arrive in luxury on ocean liners or cruise ships, including the Luxurious British Liners like the Grand RMS Queen Mary 2.
