JFK Transportation Tip
Last Thursday’s tip was about taking the bus between LGA airport and Manhattan. If you’re flying in or out of New York City’s largest airport, you can take public transportation as well. When I land at JFK, I jump on the AirTrain to Jamaica Station and then take the E train to 53rd Street and walk two blocks (underground and without going out of the subway turnstiles) to 51st Street station. Then I take the subway to the Upper East Side or to Grand Central Terminal for a total cost of $7.50 ($5 for AirTrain and $2.50 for the subway).
You do need to use a MetroCard, which you can get before exiting the AirTrain at JFK (it costs another $1 if you don’t already have one). If you’re going to the West Side or to Long Island, then you can take the LIRR from Jamaica Station. If going to downtown Manhattan, you’ll probably want to take the AirTrain to Howard Beach. .
