Getting There

New York is a top destination for tourists from around the world, so it stands to reason that the transport links are great! If you're coming to town from JFK Airport then the fastest way to get to the city is by cab. This should cost around $65 (including tolls and tip.)

A cheaper option to consider is one of the shuttle buses which don't need to be booked in advance and run from all the local airports.

When you're in the city, the famous NYC Subway will get you from A to B. Or of course, do your best Statue of Liberty impression and hail one of those iconic cabs!
