Tales from our travels
PlanesJFK International Airport services most international and west coast arrivals and departures, and is 16 miles away. Several domestic airlines fly into LaGuardia Airport, just 8 miles away. Although close, travel times to and from both airports vary greatly due to traffic and time of day.
TrainsMajor Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Amtrak train routes (www.amtrak.com) run out of Penn Station.
AutomobilesWith an abundance of taxis and public transportation options available, a car is not necessary. However, for those brave enough to climb behind the wheel in New York City, there are car-hire booths at both JFK and La Guardia.
