After all this plane time, get ready for a huge immigration line.
That quick breeze on the way out of the plane give us a boost. While you stand in line, practice your serious face for the immigration folks.

This is the airport map.


After immigration you will easily be guided by a thousand signs to whatever destination you choose. And to decide it, questions:
how tired you are?
how much money you wanna spend?

up to $ 10 -> airtrain and subway.

Look for the airtrain sign and follow it!
Airtrain goes through all JFK terminals and then goes to Howard Beach or Jamaica Stationthis is it. Make sure what side to board. If don’t know, ask.

Your destination is Jamaica Station, the airtrain the terminal, subway station and train station.

The airtrain will costs you $5, plus $1 for the metro card. Buy the$ 7.50 combo: airtrain + subway ride.
You pay on exit. You thought it was for free right? Sorry.

From there you can walk toward the subway station.
Easy and super cheap. It takes about 45 minutes to get to Manhattan.

up to $ 30 -> supershutter

At JFK you find them, but I would schedule in advance.

You can do it here:
There are options for all budgets and sizes: executive car (from $ 70), big cars for groups of 8 people, shared van (from $12 to $23).
Keep this tip for your way back to the airport. It’s a great option, especially if you have a flight on strange hours. They pick you up at home, on time, all right.
If using shared van, schedule in advance, so you will be one of the last picked, staying less time in the van.

over $ 50 -> taxi or Uber

You can take a Uber that should cost you from $60 to $90.

The fixed rate for taxi drivers jfk/mht or mht/jfk is $52 o+ other expenses like tip. The typical bad mood its for free.

so, what will it be?

welcome to new york.
