I will be flying out of JFK on 6/29 Jet Blue and returning on 7/5. I am handicapped and cannot walk any distance. Reading the comments about LT Parking vs ST Parking (where the handicapped parking is) I am getting mixed reviews about the safety of my car in ST Parking. Apparently there is no security in this parking area.

Since I need the convenience of the handicapped parking, will I be sacrificing safety by using the ST/handicap lot?
Should I somehow find a way to use the LT Parking for the added safety? Or am I being unnecessarily overcautious?

Thank you for your help.

Is there a parking garage for short term parking? Or another covered parking area available?

I have a 30 foot class A motorhome that I need to park somewhere near JFK airport for two weeks. Any suggestions?

I leaving for eight days... where can I park? & how much?is it safe?

Use the Long Term lot; it's near the AirTrain for easy travel to/from terminals and cost is $18 per day. It's located on airport property so it is patrolled regularly.

I am picking up a passenger arriving at Terminal 4. Do I need to park and go in or is there an area where I can pull up the car to pick up my friend and her luggage?

If your friend is ready for pick-up you can meet her curbside on the arrivals level. You can also wait in the Cell Phone Waiting Area for her to call you and proceed to the terminal from there. Or park in short term parking and wait for her on the arrivals level inside the terminal.

I am driving a limousine town car from Boston to JFK tonight, May 28, to meet passengers from Terminal 7 flying on Cathay Pacific. Where do I meet this passenger and where do I leave my livery car?

Hello, is the Long-Term JFK Airport Parking the same as SmartPark JFK? Also, is there a way to reserve a spot online for Long-Term JFK Airport Parking? In your experience, which one is better? (Have read some nasty stories about SmartPark on Yelp.com) Thanks!

No, not the same. Long Term parking is on airport grounds and you can access the AirTrain to travel to/from all terminals. No need to reserve, there are always spots available. Smart Park has a shuttle bus but is not very reliable. Use Long Term.

Thanks a bunch for that information. Is there a GPS address available for JFK Long Term Parking or is following directions the only way to get there?

Try intersection of Pan Am Rd. and Lefferts Blvd.

Yes, just follow the signs as you approach the airport area. LT parking is located near Lefferts Blvd.
