I will be coming into JFK tomorrow morning and I would like to know how do I get to our hotel, The Moderne, which is located at 243 W 55th st?? The nearest subway station is 55th St-7th Av Station-N/Q/R/W trains...but how do I get there??? Thanks!!

is there an address for the long term parking lot?
also, is the long term parking lot self park or valet?

Try Lefferts Blvd at intersection of Pan Am Way if you want ot put it in GPS. LT is self-park only.

My son will be arriving at 4:30pm from overseas at JFK. He has reserved seating on the AMTRAK to Providence at 8PM. How much will a taxi cost from JFK to Penn station and is that the fastest way to get to Penn station??

With tip and toll, a taxi will cost about $60. At that hour, the taxi ride could easily take more than one hour. If I were not carrying a lot of luggage, I would opt for the AirTrain to Jamaica Station ($5.00), and then the Long Island Rail Road from Jamaica to Penn Station ($6.25 on weekdays; $3.75 on weekends if one selects the "City Ticket" option on the LIRR ticket-vending machine). Total travel time should be 50-60 minutes.

What are alternative ways to get between JFK and EWR conveniently and inexpensively ?

Olympic Airporter offers hourly scheduled service between the two airports. The trip takes about 90 minutes, and costs $30 per person. (There might be an extra charge if you have a lot of luggage.) Details can be found at:

http://olympic-limo.com/schedule-airport%20transfer-ewr%20jfk.html

1)State Shuttle has service between airports for around $35. Inquire at Ground Transportation for schedule.
2)By train: take AirTrain on track 1 from terminal to Jamaica Station ($5), transfer to LIRR to Penn Station ($8.75/$6.25 off peak), transfer to NJ Transit train to EWR rail station ($12.50 includes EWR AirTrain fare), transfer to EWR AirTrain to terminals.

remark for 1. - Most of the Ground Transportation counters have been transformed into Welcome Centers at JFK.

With the pending construction at JFK are the driving directions/signs cleary label for passanger drop off at terminal 3.

Do Delta flights to MBJ depart from terminal 3

Yes and Yes.

Dear Sirs, I'll land at JFK-Terminal 1 next Saturday and have to reach the Hotel in East Broadway.

It will by my first time in N.Y. so any advice on how to get from JFK to East Broadway will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Take AirTrain on track 1 to Howard Beach Station, transfer to the inbound A subway to Jay St/Borough Hall, transfer to the inbound F subway to East Broadway.

New York, West Side of 9th Ave between 31st St and 33rd St MEGA BUS station how to get there from jfk????

walking or train

AirTrain to Jamaica Station; then, either Manhattan-bound "E" subway or Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station. (The LIRR will be faster; the subway will be cheaper.) Exit Penn Station (or the subway) on the 8th Avenue side, and walk west one block -- on either 31st or 33rd Street -- to 9th Avenue. If you're hungry and arrive in Manhattan before 9:00 PM, you can get an excellent slice of pizza at Pizza Suprema, on 8th Avenue between 30th and 31st streets.
