A new way to JFK – say goodbye to NYC with some great views and a cold one.
If you have a bit of time to kill before a departure at JFK and fancy some last minute sightseeing theres a new way to get to the airport. It’s much cheaper than a helicopter and good fun too.
NY ferries now operate a boat which runs from Wall Street to Rockaway for a very reasonable $2.75 once you get there it’s a quick transfer to the A train which is just a few stops from Howard beach which connects to the JFK AirTran. It might not be the quickest way to get the airport but certainly beats sitting in traffic for an hour or a crowded subway.
The boat does get very busy on weekends with the beach crowd but thins out in the afternoon. Say goodbye to NYC with a cold beer and some great views. All for $10.50.
