Could anyone tell me if I can spend the night in JFK (Terminal 7)?
I have a 0745 flight to Heathrow and don't want to stay in New York.
Thanks. James

There are a number of hotels surrounding JFK airport. You do not need to go into the city.

I don't think so...the airport closes at night

My husband is arriving from Phoenix on US airways at terminal 7 and connecting to a flight in terminal 1 Sunday the 7th of Dec. He has a 2 hour connection time but will have to check in at terminal 1 as well. How does he get there and will it give him enough time to make the connection.
Thank you


I was wondering if anyone knows if one can find an American Express counter in terminal 7 in order to change my traveller's cheques into money?
thanks for your answer!

i'll be picking up someone at terminal 7..how is the parking situation? is the parking close to where he will be arriving? this is the first time im driving to JFK. thanks!

We are a party of 3 travelling by train from Florida on the 2nd/3rd January 2009. We would like to freshen up with a shower before flying out of Terminal 7. Any thoughts on ease of using VIP lounges? Is it possible to get between terminals after check-in?

I will arrive on Terminal 7 from London, and we will go to Grand Central in Manhattan, is it easy? Because we are with a child.....please tell me how many changes and wich trains because we are italian and we don't know very well english. Thanks Sara

Forget the train or subways - this is recommended for EVERY traveller not just foreigners. Here are your options in order of the best option.

1. Take a taxi anywhere to Manhattan for a flat rate of $60 (it's $45+tolls+tip). If you ever have a doubt, tip at least 10%. They are supposed to drop you off exactly where you ask them to, just give the address. Don't let them drop you off anywhere else.

2. Bus. $12-15. It will either take you Grand Central station or Penn Station. From there you can take the subways to wherever you please.

3. Shuttle Van. The rate depends but it's around $20. They will drop you off at a hotel, Penn/Grand Central, and sometimes even at your hotel (it depends).

These options are available to you right outside your arrival terminal/baggage claim. Look for the signs and ask a uniformed person because there are designated areas to take taxi, bus, or van.

I don't suggest taking any other way, especially if you're a tourist.

Good luck to all of you and welcome to the Big Apple!

Its not easy, but its not impossible.

From Terminal 7 take the AirTrain ($5 US) to Jamaica Station. Take the LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) train (about $7) to Atlantic Center (Brooklyn). At Atlantic Center, transfer to the NY subway (MTA - $2 per trip) trains 4 or 5 heading towards Manhattan which will take you to 42nd St/Grand Central Station.

Good luck!

if you want to avoid the Long Island Railroad you can take Airtrain to Howard Beach ($5). At Howard Beach you can transfer to the subway A train ($2). After about an hour, get off at Fulton Street/Broadway-Nassau Streets, its the first stop in Manhattan. At this station you can transfer (free) to either the 4 or 5 subway train (it doesn't matter which) and ride about another 30 minutes to Grand Central.
Some of the transfers can be a bit confusing but there are plenty of signs and employees to help out...
Good Luck!


how long will it take me to get through t7 after landing on flight from london

With no checked bags, its just the immigration line time so under 30 min. With checked bags allow another 15 minutes.

My boss is arriving Terminal 7 and needs to claim baggage and then re-check baggage and get back to Terminal 7. Does anyone have directions that can help him do this efficiently? He only as one hour in between flights.

Thank you.
