Probably at Leffot.

The only plan for a direct train ride from Manhattan to an airport....
And it's in Jersey.
And it's 10 years away.
And it's being built by the Port Authority.

a taxi is always worth the extra cash for the airports.

Who takes public transportation from Manhattan to any of the airports?

The bus to or from LaGuardia isn't bad at all if your're above 59th. I think that's why a bunch of those youth hostels are up near Harlem. The Youthz can just bus over on 125th. It's awful taking a bus or train from LaGuardia back to Brooklyn though.

Also, it's disgusting outside.

I feel bad for the confused faces of tourists rolling their luggage around the Broadway Junction station trying to go to JFK.

Its like the opposite of going to a yankees/knicks/nets/mets game (where you excitedly/happily follow other people in jerseys/hats/team-shirts) this time its scared tourists looking around for other people with luggage who have realized that they've reached a very very "urban" part of Brooklyn and probably should've taken a cab.

The train is my preferred route to JFK or EWR because it is very consistent. No traffic jams to worry about. The van wyck is always bumper to bumper. The exception was when I had to go to EWR on Super Bowl Sunday and decided to take the train because they closed a bunch of roads in midtown. ffffuuuu.gif

You must have really large or really small feet, I'm about right in the middle but the ones I ordered won't be ready until March :/ ... which is still practically summer down here but still, I feel sorry for the people who really need them.

No way. E train is best way to JFK. Don't have to worry about traffic. The cheapness is just a bonus. I usually take a cab on the way back into the city out of lazyness.

And NJTransit is fine for EWR, considering cab is ~$80?

i forget how much fun going on a subway with bags of luggage is.

BART to SFO from my stop is $8.50, has a 25-minute transit time (plus the cushion to ensure that you don't miss the train), requires that I lug my stuff down/up our steep-ass hill and several blocks to the station, and then drops me at the international terminal. So, add another 15-20 minutes of walking to that transit time.

A cab costs $40 with tip, takes less than 20 minutes, picks me up at my door, and drops me at the appropriate terminal.

There is no choice here.

my cab from SFO ended up being like $70. Didn't mind paying it since when you're going to a wedding, you inevitably have more crap to carry around.



had my brother pick us up at LAX. Even better.
