Arriving in New York

The three main airports which serve New York City are:

JFK International Airport

Newark International

And La Guardia, which handles largely internal and shorter haul flights.

Of course, the choice of airport when arriving on an international flight will not usually be people's top priority; it will usually have been chosen for you or it will not matter to those who just want to get to New York at a specific time of day.

Well if you do have a choice, you may save yourself a little hassle. Whilst Newark Airport is further away from the action of Manhattan, you may be a little less likely to get caught in traffic.

Whereas, from JFK, the journey can sometimes be slower, along the notorious route 678, the Van Wyck Expressway.

Both though are excellently served by taxis, buses and coaches and are easy to get around.

As you leave each airport, look for the GROUND TRANSPORTATION desks for large choice of companies, all of them usually offering competitive rates.

For those needing to transfer between airports, good transport links exist. Just look for the signs.

Finally, one more tip. If you can't afford the helicopter sightseeing ride around Manhattan you've always promised yourself, consider this. Book a seat on your departing aircraft at a right hand window on an overnight flight from Newark Airport. You're likely to be treated to views of Downtown and Midtown Manhattan that will take your breath away -- and all included in the cost of your air ticket!
