Simplify transfers in New York

New York City is divided into five distinct boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan. Manhattan is the most well-known, and the reason some 50+ million visitors visit the city every year. People travel here from all over the world for a bite of the Big Apple. Whether it’s Broadway, the iconic skyline, your favorite sports team, history, food, or just the atmosphere, NYC has a little something for everyone. The city is served by three major airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) just across the border in New Jersey. Of the three, LaGuardia is the closest airport to Manhattan, and takes just 20 minutes with a private airport transfer. However, LaGuardia is mostly used for domestic flights to the rest of the US. If you land in New York from overseas, chances are you will fly into JFK, which is the largest and busiest airport in the city. From JFK, the bright lights of Times Square are just 35 minutes away with a premium car service. Private transportation from Newark Airport to Manhattan takes just 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the easiest way to get to NYC from the airport?

The easiest way to travel from NYC’s three major airports is by booking a private Blacklane transfer, and travel to your hotel, event, or accommodation directly from the arrivals hall. Alternatively, all three airports have public transport routes into Manhattan. 

There are a number of possible routes to Manhattan from JFK, depending on time and budget. The JFK AirTrain connects the airport to NYC’s public transportation network at Jamaica and Howard Beach stations. Here you can find the subway, the Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station, and public buses. Many of these lines run directly to Manhattan, and take just 25 minutes.  The Q70 LaGuardia Link bus service runs free of charge to Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av in Queens, where you can catch the F train to the Rockefeller Center in downtown Manhattan. The journey takes roughly an hour.  Newark International Airport offers a direct Newark Airport Express which runs every 20 minutes from EWR to Bryant Park in Manhattan. The journey takes 55 minutes and costs $18.70 for one way, or $33 for round trip.

How much is a taxi from the airport to Manhattan?

A standard taxi fare from JFK to Manhattan will cost $52-$70, plus an additional $5.50 for toll and tip. From LaGuardia, you can expect to pay between $35 - $70 depending on traffic conditions and location. From Newark Airport, a standard fare will be between $50 - $75 and does not include tolls, tips, or surcharges. When you book with Blacklane, all fees will be included in the final price, so there will be no surprise charges you need to worry about.

What is the easiest airport to get to Times Square?

LaGuardia Airport is the closest airport to Manhattan, and therefore the closest airport to Times Square. Book a direct premium car service from LGA and arrive in Times Square in 30 minutes. Arrive in Time Square in 50 minutes when you take the Q70 bus line to Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av and change for the New York subway to Times Square.
