We are travelling from U.K (2 adults and hardy travellers) arriving at JFK (5.15) and looking for directions to use Airtrain and Subway to Brooklyn staying at Ocean Avenue, have travelled in the past using the Path from Newark would appreciate any help. Thanks

I'm coming into JFK airport on Thursday 2/21 around 10am and need to get to the Mariott Marquis Time Square. I have never been to NYC and have no clue what is the easiest or cheapest way to get there. It will just be 2 adults. Also, I will be leaving on Sunday 2/24 at 3pm. Would the same route both way be advised? Thanks.

I would like to know the best way to travel from JFK to Manhattan. Would you suggest Air Train or LIRR to Penn Station? I would prefer getting a taxi from there. Ive been to New York once before but not very familiar with the area. I prefer to stay off the subway as its way too confusing to me:o))) I noticed there is a super shuttle service however after my appointment, Im alittle worried about getting back for my flight at 7:30 if the shuttle takes 90 minutes. Any help is appreciated. Thanks much

The subway from JFK isn't too confusing, take the Air Train to the Subway, A. Take the A train into manhattan. It's not that bad. :)
