Hi Everyone,

I'll be making up a full guide to New York City - similar to the one I made for the 2009 Holiday Cruise for NYC which includes area airports and ground transportation options and more. In the meantime, here's the Reader's Digest version:

New York Area Airports

New York City is served by three major airports: Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia
(LGA) and Newark (EWR). We do not recommend MacArthur Airport in
Islip, Long Island (ISP) due to it's distance from the city. The
reality is that any of the airports can services your needs and, each
has their drawbacks. The biggest problem is always traffic,
even though all three area airports are 20 miles or less from
Manhattan, it can often take an hour or more to reach Manhattan, and,
New York/New Jersey traffic is unpredictable and has no rhyme or reason.

Getting To Manhattan from the Airports

While this is your expense, it is recommended you either take a taxi or hire
a car service or shuttle service to transport you from the airport to
Manhattan. Public transportation is available but, it is not recommended since you will have luggage in tow.

From JFK (Kennedy)

  • Taxis:
    $45 flat fare (plus tolls) to any Manhattan location. Taxis are
    available outside of every terminal and there is typically a taxi stand
    where you will be directed to a taxi. For destinations outside of
    Manhattan, consult the TLC Fare Guide. You may also want to familiarize yourself with the Taxi Rider's Bill of Rights.
    There is no additional charge for luggage and rates are based per car,
    not per passenger (up to four passengers). To return to JFK from Brooklyn or Manhattan, taxis will charge you the metered rate, plus any applicable tolls.
  • Car Services:
    Pre-arrange for a car service to meet you at the airport, or call one
    when your flight touches down. This is a great option if you want to
    avoid waiting in line for a taxi or if you have a group larger than
    four people and want to arrange for a van or limousine. Try Limos.com at http://www.limos.com for free price quotes
  • Private Shuttles: Several companies offer shuttles to Manhattan, including:

    • New York Airport Service Express Bus:
      Available from 6:30 a.m. - 11:10 p.m., these shuttles leave every 15-30
      minutes. Fare is $13 ($15 if you want to be dropped off at your midtown
      hotel), but you can save by buying roundtrip tickets online, as they
      are $22 (you can also buy discounted one way tickets online). One free
      child under 12 is included in the fare. You can choose to disembark at
      Grand Central, Port Authority or Penn Station, in addition to hotels
      between 31st Street and 60th Street. The ride takes about an hour.
      Return schedules and more information are available on their website.
    • Super Shuttle:
      Available 24 hours a day, this shuttle provides door to door service
      for your party. Fares are $15 - $19, depending on destination. No
      reservations are required to get from the airport to your destination,
      but they are required for your return trip to the airport. Consult
      their website or call 1-800-258-3826 for more information.


From LaGuardia (LGA)

  • Taxis:
    Metered fare (plus tolls) to any Manhattan location. Taxis are
    available outside of every terminal and there is typically a taxi stand
    where you will be directed to a taxi. For destinations outside of
    Manhattan, consult the TLC Fare Guide. You may also want to familiarize yourself with the Taxi Rider's Bill of Rights. There is no additional charge for luggage and rates are based per car, not per passenger (up to four passengers).

    $50-75. Taxis are available outside of every terminal and there is
    typically a taxi stand where you will be directed to a taxi. There is
    an additional charge for luggage over 24 inches if the driver handles
    the bags, and rates are based per car, not per passenger (up to four
    passengers).
  • Taxis to Newark Airport: Metered fare (approximately $69-75) plus return tolls and a $15 surcharge for a NYC Taxi to Newark Airport.
  • Car Services:
    Pre-arrange for a car service to meet you at the airport, or call one
