Getting to New York City

Flying

Major international airlines fly into Newark (EWR) and Kennedy (JFK). Domestic flights also land at La Guardia (LGA). Bear in mind that during inclement weather EWR and LGA experience substantial flight delays while JFK has less issues.

Train

Amtrak provides train service from Washington DC and Boston (and cities in-between) on either regular or Acela service. These trains arrive at Penn Station on 33rd st. which is 10 blocks away from the meeting venue on the west side of Manhattan.

Driving

You can drive into New York; it’s accessible from Interstate 78 and 95 roads; however traffic is terrible; parking is expensive, and you’ll usually be using cabs or trains to get around. Not Recommended.

Getting into the City:

JFK

CAB:

You can take a taxi ($55 flat rate to Manhattan with tolls and tip; ~$65 all in) from the airport anywhere in Manhattan; local destinations (Queens, Brooklyn) are market rate.

TRAIN:

Follow signs for the AirTrain JFK from your terminal and get on a JAMAICA train. Once you get to Jamaica station pay the $5 exit fee and then either take the E Subway train into the city (45 min, $2.75) or the LIRR commuter train to PENN Station (~$10, 20 min). LIRR tickets can be purchased with a $5 credit for the AIRTRAIN; you can use a standard Metrocard to put $5 of credit on should you choose to use the subway; vending machines are to the right before the gates.

Bryant Park is a short walk from PENN station and 2 long blocks from Port Authority (the E train).

UBER/LYFT:

Both operate from JFK. Rates vary based on surge pricing but are comparable to cabs; however cabs are usually waiting there while Ubers will have to come into the airport.

LGA

CAB:

Market rate; typically $20-30 depending on traffic into Manhattan.

BUS/TRAIN:

Take the M60 bus (comes to terminals) to 116st; then walk south on Broadway to the 1/2/3 train. This goes to Times Square which is one block west of Bryant Park. You can buy a Metrocard at the newsstands in the exit areas of the airport; but they are open only during business hours. Busses only accept coins; dollar bills are not accepted.

EWR -  NEWARK

CABS:

Taxis from EWR generally don’t go to Manhattan.

CAR SERVICES:

These run into Manhattan; have to be booked in advance and are expensive. ~$100+ depending on the size of the car and time of day.

BUS:

There are several shuttle busses that go into Port Authority or Grand Central; follow signs for Ground Transit (you’ll have to go outside). Cost is usually ~$10-15 and can take 15-45 min depending on traffic through Lincoln and Holland Tunnels.

TRAIN:

You can either do NJ Transit (~$15) that also goes into PENN station; follow the AirTrain signs and you’ll be able to buy both the combo exit ticket and NJTransit ticket. Trains generally come every 20 min (less so than LIRR); but more often during peak commute times into and out of the city. Transit time is about 30min.

UBER/LYFT:

These vary because many drivers do not want to deal with tolls and everything else required to get into Manhattan from the Jersey side. Pricing is most likely $60+ but again surge pricing may also apply.
