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.

how do I get from JFK to Pell Station, and how long does it take?

What is the cheapest way (via public transit) from JFK to ALOFT Hotel in Brooklyn (216 Duffield St.- what station does one get off on ?) I was thinking of getting to the JFK subway station via parking shuttle to the long term parking lot then hopping onto the the subway system. Is there a better way ?? Thanks

Take AirTrain on track 1 from terminal to Howard Beach Station ($5), transfer to the A subway ($2.25) to Hoyt-Schermerhorn, exit to Hoyt St. and walk north on Hoyt to Fulton Mall, turn right one block and then left to Duffield St.

Should I stop by immigration office when I will leave US for departure recorded?

No.

I will arrive in NYC at JFK airport on July 2 and i would like to know how can i do to to go at 891 Amsterdam Av at West 103rd. What kind of public transport (bus, subway...)cheapest can i get? How much 1 will pay for each one? This address is far from JFK?Thanck you very much.

Cheapest is by AirTrain ($5) to subway ($2.25): take AirTrain from terminal to Jamaica Station, transfer to inbound E subway to 50th St, transfer to the uptown C subway one stop to 59th St, transfer to the uptown #1 subway to 103rd St, walk one block east from station at 103rd/Broadway to Amsterdam Ave.

This is bad advice for two reasons: 1. There is no transfer available from the downtown side at 50th Street/8th Avenue Station to the uptown side. 2. Even if there were, it would still be easier to transfer from the E to an uptown D train at 7th Avenue Station, and take the D to Columbus Circle for the #1.

And taking the AirTrain to the subway is NOT the cheapest way. Taking the Q10 bus to the subway from Terminal 4 is cheaper -- but it will take longer.

If going by AirTrain, I would take the AirTrain to Howard Beach station, and then take the A train all the way to Columbus Circle, and make just one transfer there to the uptown #1 train. The cheaper alternative is to take the Q10 or Q10 Limited bus from JFK Terminal 4 to the A train terminal at Liberty Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard, and then ride the A train from there to Columbus Circle, where the transfer to the uptown #1 train can be made.

thanks for the answer!! B2G, you are the best!

hihi jb i will be arriving jfk 6am what time the bus leaves jfk to 42street port Atouratie and what time the 107 leaves for newark nj

I plan to drive into JFK (from Nebraska) to pick up a family flying in on Aeroflot (term 1). Will they be at term 1, or do they have to clear customs at term 4? Is it possible to wait in the cell phone parking are for them to call me, then pick them up curbside at whatever terminal? Are the driving directions given on this site the best for coming in on I-80?
Thanks,
Redtop

how can I get from JFK to Boston?

Take either Megabus or Boltbus, they both depart near Penn Station. You can also take Amtrak train from Penn Station to Boston but will cost you much more than the bus.

Hi,
I have to catch 7.30 pm flight pm 5/26 from Terminal 4. How much time will it take to travel from Richmond Hill, NY to JFK? What will be the taxi cost?
Thanks
