  • LaGuardia and JFK are both serviced by public transportation, but most people take cabs. To get into midtown Manhattan from either airport, a yellow cab will set you back $45 (flat rate) plus tip. If you’re arriving at Newark, take the Airtrain Newark train to Penn Station in Manhattan. The 35-minute ride costs only $5.50.

  • The subway system is extensive and cheap – you can get anywhere for the $2.25 flat fee. Buses also cover most of the city and cost the same as the subway. Whichever you use, get a metrocard.

  • There are more than 10,000 yellow cabs in New York. New Yorkers complain if one doesn’t stop within 90 seconds – you really can always hail one quickly. And don’t be shy; there’s almost nothing you can’t learn about the city from a New York cabbie.
