New York City 

Getting In 

There are several airports providing convenient access to New York City. The three major airports being JFK International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Smaller domestic airports providing access to the city include Long Island MacArthur Airport, Westchester County Airport, and Stewart County Airport. With plenty of flights serving New York City, it should not be difficult finding cheap flights. However, the cheapest air ticket could mean flying very early in the morning or late at night. It could also mean departing from a different airport than the airport you arrived.

Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan is the hub of the Amtrak train network in the Northeastern Corridor. Commuter trains arriving at Penn Station include the Long Island Railroad (traveling the length of Long Island) and the New Jersey Transit (arriving from the suburbs in neighboring New Jersey). You should not have a problem getting a cab outside Penn Station and the station itself is served by six subway routes that connect to other stations across the city. Grand Central Terminal serves as the terminal for the Metro-North Rail Road in New York City, serving stations in New Jersey and until Connecticut.

Long distance intercity buses are often cheaper than traveling by plane or train. However, buses are not the fastest way to get to New York City if you have to travel 400 miles (640 km). The main terminal for intercity buses is the Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT), located in Midtown Manhattan. Major bus companies traveling to the city include Greyhound, BoltBus, and Megabus. Chinatown buses are small bus companies offering cheap fares and based in Manhattan’s Chinatown.
