John F. Kennedy International Airport, commonly known as JFK, is the one of the three main airports serving New York City, United States. It is located in Queens, and is approximately 20 km from Lower Manhattan. In 2014, JFK served over 53 million passengers, making it the busiest international airport in the US. JFK’s premises span across six terminals. Terminal 1 is used mainly by Air France, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, and Lufthansa. Terminal 2 is used exclusively by Delta Airlines. Terminal 4 serves as an international hub for Delta Airlines, and is also a major gateway for international arrivals at JFK. Terminal 5, the newest terminal in JFK, is the hub for JetBlue Airways. With the exception of Aer Lingus, it exclusively handles North American regional flights (within US, and to the Caribbean or Hawaii). Terminal 7 is operated by British Airways, and also handles carriers of the Oneworld alliance (including Cathay Pacific and Qantas) and Star Alliance (including ANA and Air Canada). Finally, Terminal 8, the largest terminal in JFK, is operated by American Airlines and is used by other Oneworld alliance members, such as Air Berlin, Qatar Airways, Alaska Airlines, and Finnair. Terminals 3 and 6 have been closed down. The entire JFK airport complex is connected via the AirTrain network, which is in operation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Rides are free within the terminal area and to the hotel and car rental shuttle buses at Federal Circle. All terminals have extensive options when it comes to dining, shopping, and entertainment. However, Terminals 5 and 8 are the newest and are known to have the best and widest variety of restaurants and shops. Wireless Internet at JFK is free for the first 30 minutes.
The AirTrain is connected to the Long Island Rail Road and the New York City Subway in Queens. The fastest and most convenient way to travel would be to connect to the Long Island Rail Road and stop at Manhattan West Side and Queens – the journey will take 35 minutes and costs USD$15. A cheaper option would be to take the MTA Subway to Lower Manhatten, which will take 1 hour and costs USD$7.75. The New York City Airporter Bus is a service that runs from Port Authority Bus Terminal to Grand Central Terminal for USD$16 one-way. The journey can take up to 90 minutes. Alternatively, travelers can consider van services such as SuperShuttle or Go Airlink Shuttle (shared service) which costs between USD$17-25. Taxis are also available for a flat rate of USD$52 to anywhere in Manhattan. However, during peak periods, you might have to wait up to 30 minutes for a taxi. Within the city, most people walk or take the subway, which is connected to virtually every part of the city.
New York City, also commonly called New York, NYC, or The Big Apple, is an icon in its own right. Famous the world over for being one of the most diverse, cosmopolitan, and vibrant megacities in the world, it is also the global epicenter for film, music, theatre, dance, and art. New York City consists of five boroughs, each with its own culture and character – Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Manhattan is the most populated area of New York, and contains a large share of the city’s iconic landmarks. For example, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square, Central Park, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are just a few attractions that you can find in this area. Brooklyn and Queens are up and coming neighbourhoods that are becoming increasingly popular with the hip and trendy crowd because of its burgeoning artistic community and its cool eclectic vibes. At neighbourhoods such as Williamsburg or Long Island City, you’ll find underground clubs, speakeasy bars, cutting edge art collectives, and independent theatres. The Bronx is the birthplace of hip-hop music and home to the New York Yankees. It has a rough reputation, but also its own unique Bronx identity and an authenticity that may be missing in other more sanitized parts of the city. These areas also tend to be very ethnically diverse with large immigrant communities, which is reflected in its people, music, food, and culture. Gritty yet glamorous, innovative yet rooted in tradition, New York and its inhabitants are energetic, chaotic, and stimulating all at once – no wonder it’s known as the city that never sleeps!
