How do I get there? NYC has three major Airports:

John F. Kennedy - JFK

Newark - EWR

LaGuardia - LGA

Transportation at NYC Airports

Getting to and from NYC Airports

For those flying into New York there are three major airports that you may arrive at: LaGuardia, Newark, and Kennedy International. There are on-line directions from the airports to the major hotels, together with Central Park, Area, and subway maps.

The easiest way to get to Manhattan is to take a Yellow Cab from any of the airports; however, this is also a more expensive route. Taxi fare from the various airports is as follows: LaGuardia: about $18 + $3 toll + 15% tip = $24 Newark: about $60-$65 JFK: fixed rate $35 + $3 toll + 15% tip = $44

A simple and cheaper alternative is the SuperShuttle. This is a shared van which will take you from the airport and drop you off at a location you specify (including your hotel) in Manhattan. To use the SuperShuttle, follow the signs at the airport to the Ground Transportation Desk near the Baggage Claim area. There you can make a reservation on the next shuttle. The vans leave on demand, so there will only be a short wait for yours. The SuperShuttle will also pick you up at your hotel for your return to the airport. Simply call them with at least 24 hours notice at 212-BLUE-VAN or 212-258-3826 with your pick up location and time.

SuperShuttle Fares from the airports are as follows: LaGuardia: $15-$22, operates 7 AM to 11:30 PM Newark: $15-$19, operates 24 hours/day JFK: $15-$19, operates 24 hours/day

Gray Line Air Shuttle, 212/315-3006. Accessible service between NYC's three major airports and area hotels with 24-hour notice.

Getting Around in New York City
Most of Manhattan's attractions can be visited by using a combination of the city's subway, extensive bus service, one of the thousands of yellow taxis and your feet! A Metro card offers unlimited subway and local bus lines and offers great value.

And who knows? Maybe Willie'll show up in Central Park!!

Willie, you're pretty special, 'n you're invited!!
