New York is served by three main airports; John F Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark International.

John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) is New York's largest airport located in Queens, approximately 15 miles from Manhattan. A light-rail Airtrain connects directly to New York's subway system while buses, car hire and taxis are also available. The journey time into the centre varies between 30 and 60 minutes.

LaGuardia Airport is smaller than JFK and is located in Queens, approximately 8 miles from midtown Manhattan. It takes approximately 20 minutes to drive by car and a $4* toll must be paid on the road. The NYC Airporter bus costs $13* as does the Express Shuttle bus. Car hire and taxis are also available.

Newark International Airport is actually located in Newark, New Jersey, just 16 miles from midtown Manhattan. Driving into the centre of New York takes between 20 and 45 minutes while the Airport Express bus takes 45 minutes and costs approximately $12.50 for a single journey.

All the airports provide an excellent range of shopping and dining facilities as well as essential services from currency exchange and baby changing to tourist information and car hire.

Practical Information

You need your passport with you when you’re flying out with the UK and a visa may be required for travel to the United States. There are printers in the check-in area of DublinAirport, so there is no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone. Security can scan the e-barcode so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend leaving plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself extra time.

What to expect in New York

New York may be on of the most expensive cities in the US, thanks to its vast size there is a huge variety of eating, drinking and accommodation options for those travelling on a tighter budget. Alongside Michelin starred restaurants there are hot dog stands, pizza parlours, local cafes and restaurants and thousands of fast food options to choose from. Entertainment can be in the form of glamorous high end Broadway shows, spectacular art at the MoMa and dazzling views from the Empire State Building to low budget nights in independent cinemas or just soaking up the New York atmosphere with a picnic in Central Park, a stroll through the vintage boutiques of Greenwich Village or the bookshops of Manhattan. Avoid eating or drinking near any of the major tourist sights as these will have the highest prices and not necessarily the nicest food. Many of New York’s major attractions and tours start from $10*. A budget breakfast costs from $5 to $10* while dinner can be as little as $9*. A coffee is usually around $1 to $2* and a beer from $5 to $7*. Accommodation ranges from five star hotels to super cheap budget sleeps including hostels and apartment shares. Summers in New York are hot and muggy while winters often see snow and bitter winds. Christmas is a lovely time to visit for the lights, festive atmosphere and of course, the shopping! Summers mean boat trips, rollerblading through parks and outdoor festivals and music. Whenever you decide to visit, the city that never sleeps will provide ample adventure!
