Concerning travel: all three NY-area airports have reasonable access to Manhattan. For those traveling with relatively little luggage, there is convenient rail transportation from both JFK and Newark airports to NY Penn Station (from which one can use subway or taxi); this option has the advantage of avoiding traffic-related delays (which depending upon the time of day can be substantial). Shared van service (Supershuttle) is another alternative, providing the convenience of door-to-door service. Taxis from JFK use a flat fare (about $53 plus tip and toll, usually approx $70 total). Taxis from Newark (EWR) use the metered fare (about $55 plus toll and tip, usually about $75 total). Taxis from LaGuardia use the metered fare (about $40 plus toll and tip, typically about $55).
