FAQ & FYI
Q: What airport should I fly into?
A: We will pick you up at arrivals from LaGuardia (LGA) or John F Kennedy (JFK). Newark International airport is an option as well. Though Newark isn't far in distance, it's in another state. That said, you would have to take the air bus from Newark to Penn Station (in Midtown Manhattan) where we would pick you up and bring you to the MNYBA/CCBC.
*Estimated times are contingent on traffic.
