New York is the easiest city to access in the world. Nearly every airline flies into one of the surrounding airports. The three majore airports are John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark International Airport (my favorite), and for domestic travel within the United States, La Guardia Airport. Trains also make a reliable means of transport into New York. Amtrak, Metro North, Long Island Railroad, and NJ Transit all make their way into either Pennsylvania Station or Grand Central Station. If you're coming in by car, be sure to travel over the George Washington Bridge if you're coming from New Jersey. The view is amazing. However, the Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, and many more will get you into the city. Another alternative is to travel to New York by ship. Several cruises include New York City on their itinerary. However, this is not the most flexible of travel methods.
Getting around new York is fast and easy. You can use the subway systems, which I recommend. While not the cleanest in the world, they do run quite an extensive network and in an ideal situation, you can reach almost any part of the city with great ease. In the outer-Boroughs (Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island) buses are your best bet most of the time. Cabs are a more expensive alternative. I wouldn't recommend a bicycle to get around. The traffic network in New York is not designed for biking. You can do it, it's just not that safe. Take the time to walk through different parts of the city. There so much you don't want to miss.

Directions: Queens. Can use M60, Q33 busses.
Type: Train
