I am coming from New Windsor NY. What is the cheapest way to get to the Jet Blue terminal at JFK?

Probably by train, approx. $25: go to the Metro North/NJ Transit station at Salisbury Mills-Cornwall (southwest of New Windsor on the other side of the Thruway) and take the Port Jervis line train to Secaucus Jct, go to the station upper level and take any NJ Transit train to Penn Station ($14), transfer to LIRR ($5.75) or E subway ($2.25) to Jamaica and take AirTrain ($5) from there to terminals.

Hi, there,
We all three 2 adults and 1 kid will arrive at JFK early Dec, and rent a car to head towards Empire state building. How would the parking cost around the area?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Street parking is terrible in midtown and you would have to park in one of the underground lots which are very expensive even for just a few hours. Suggest you take public transportation to the Empire State Building. Most major subway lines and LIRR stop within a few blocks. From JFK take AirTrain to Jamaica Station and then either LIRR or E subway to Penn Station, walk two blocks or just look up, you can't miss it!

Hello

We will be arriving in JFK at 13:30 on Sunday, can you advise of the easiest and cheapest way to travel from JFK to our hotel, which is right by the Union St subway in Brooklyn?

Many thanks
Jennifer

Easiest is by taxi, cost would be around $50. Cheapest is by public transportation; take AirTrain from your terminal to Jamaica Station, transfer to LIRR to Atlantic Terminal-Brooklyn, transfer to the Bay Ridge-bound R subway to Union St.

Hello! Pls help - cheapest way from JFK to Central Valley. Thank You in advance for Your advice and time! :)

The NJ Transit/Metro North-Port Jervis line train from Secaucus Junction stops at Harriman which is closest station to Central Valley, about 3-4 miles, fare is $19. To get to Secaucus Junction from JFK take AirTrain from terminal to Jamaica Station ($5), transfer to E subway ($2.25) or LIRR ($5.75/$8) to Penn Station, take any NJ Transit train to Secaucus Junction, transfer to the Port Jervis train. See www.njtransit.com and use the trip planner to see schedules and connections.

Travelling Dec. 26th out of JFK, is there an easy way to get from Philly to JFK without driving.

Bus or train from Philly to Penn Station, then either NYAS express bus ($15) to your JFK terminal, or LIRR ($6~$8) or E subway ($2.25) to Jamaica and AirTrain ($5) from there to terminals.

On a tight budget and need to get 3 adults from JFK airport to Marriot Hotel Lexington ave 49st. Please can you tell me the cheapest option? Plane arrives on Sunday 21st @11:20. Regards
