JFK Airport

Pick this airport if: It is great if you are loyal to Jet Blue – they have a big beautiful terminal there. This is also the place to go if you have a longer haul or international flight.

Getting to and from JFK: It’s farther away than LGA but there is subway and Airtrain access. The subway to JFK usually takes at least 90 minutes (A or E train) from Manhattan but it’s reliable and you don’t have to worry about traffic. You can also use Blade helicopter service from Manhattan (not cheap, but very convenient). Personally, I thought taking the Long Island Railroad from Penn Station to Jamaica and transferring to the Airtrain was easiest. The ride from Penn Station to the Jamaica station is 23 minutes making it faster than the subway.

What to eat while you are there: There are plenty of excellent lounges, especially in the international terminal (Delta, Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways) as well as food options including two Shake Shack locations and Marcus Samuelsson’s Uptown Brasserie.

Laguardia Airport

Pick this airport if: It’s the most convenient if you are going to be staying in the Upper East Side, Queens, or North Brooklyn. LGA doesn’t have international (other than Canada) or longer haul (West Coast) flights. If you need a shuttle flight to Boston, Chicago, or DC this is your place. Delta and American have a lot of flights out of LGA so if you are loyal to those airlines this is your best bet.

Getting to and from LGA: There is no easy public transportation, you can take a bus or a subway to a bus, but Uber or taxi is the best option.

What to eat while you are there: There are limited lounge and food options at the airport. There is an Amex Centurion lounge between terminals B & C but it’s before security. My favorite pizza place, Artichoke Pizza, has a location in Terminal C.
