    For subway access, head to the DEPARTURES level on the second floor (above the baggage claim floor) to catch one of the city busses that will connect you. A MTA card is needed to get a bus ticket.

    Don't wait for a cab! If at main terminal head outside and make a right and keep walking past where you think you should go - all the way to the end. Always cabs. Never a line.

    Fun fact: A perimeter rule prohibits nonstop flights to or from points beyond 1,500 miles from LGA. Exceptions to the perimeter rule are flights on Saturdays and flights to Denver.

    Lots of construction now so be sure to reserve extra time! Many small shops and food court with a pretty decent selection of food. Bin voyage!

    Quite the adventure getting to delta terminal C. Descend down 14 levels that rival a marble game, exchange confused glances waiting for shuttle, enjoy a 12 s bus ride, then arrive at a garage with a/c

    Great food options in a little store near gate D1 if you want something fresh and healthy. Salads, fruit, nuts, real ginger ale (good for bumpy flights)...

    Well the new Terminal B is great. New restaurants, spacious concourse with chargers and seats, big restrooms. Lounges for United and Air Canada. Great signage. From worst to first?

    New terminal B is really nice, very spacious. Easy to get to manhattan, the Q70 bus is free of charge and brings you to Roosevelt Subway station, from there you can take the 7 line to grand Central

    You know those survival-horror video games? The ones where all humanity has been stripped from the skeletal remains of places that once were teeming with life?Terminal B is pretty much like that.

    Here’s what’s good: The Marine Air Terminal (Terminal A) is super cool/retro with art-deco interior and lots of history, worth checking out if you have time. Here’s what’s bad: Everything else

    The grimy walls, the frigid drafts, the dilapidated fixtures, the disgruntled staff, the misdirecting signage: Signs that you're back at LaGuardia. NYC's way of noting that you're not all that.

    Depending on the terminal you are flying it's a hit or miss experience. Recommend taking the express shuttle bus to manhattan when Uber's are expensive and the taxi lines are long.

    The M60 can be a gem. An affordable and efficient alternative to taking a taxi. I often will plan to take it to and from LGA especially when I'm traveling light.

    Five guys burgers over in terminal b before you go through security is great. First time having one and it's in the top 3 of my fav fast food burgers now. Get it with the works

    Central Terminal is under construction. ONLY PRIVATE vehicles can pick up passengers. Passengers with car services must now take a shuttle bus to a remote car service pickup area. Add 30-45 minutes.

    Taking a taxi to Midtown Manhattan? At the rates as of this posting, it will cost about $30 to $37 metered fare—plus bridge and tunnel tolls and gratuity; 20 to 25 minutes. Info: 212-NYC-TAXI

    Born and raised New Yorker who always avoided LGA if at all possible. Now? It’s my favorite airport. They nailed the departure drop off area flow and the inside is beautiful and inviting.

    For an am flight out of Terminal B, get there on the early side so you can grab your breakfast at Dunkin Donuts or Au Bon Pain before security, there's only one place for coffee on the other side

    You could get Shake Shack burgers, coffee at Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, tacos at La Chula Taqueria, books at McNally Jackson & toys at FAO Schwarz, makeup at MAC. All in terminal B of the airport.

    If traveling on a Delta flight and deciding between the red or white wines, go for the red. Although a Merlot, the red is medium bodied and surprisingly tart. The white is barely palatable.

    Delta terminals C & D are really cleaned up with good food options and iPads to use. Try mass transit into the city, Q70 express bus to Roosevelt subway stop, then E train to Times Square/42nd Street

    If you've got an AMEX PLT card, hit the Centurion Lounge, otherwise grab a perch at the bar right before security. It's a wasteland of options after TSA.

    Continued frustration on the length of time it will take for them to fix this airport. So much construction, give yourself an extra 30min just for traffic once in the airport.

    "Empire Tavern" is conveniently located right near gates 15-24. Be warned their menu consists pretty much of cold pre-made sandwiches. If you just want a drink it doesn't get much more convenient

    There are no more taxis at the far end of the terminal due to construction, only buses taking you to a taxi lot; but the uber lot is directly across the street on the 2nd floor of the parking garage

    Great enhancements to the Delta's terminal. Use one of their iPad stations to play games or watch the news while waiting for your flight. Five guys is there if you're hungry. Bon appetite!

    Crust, located in the gate C area, serves excellent breakfast options. Personal iPads are avail for use at each table. Perfect for solo dining.

    Best value + fastest way to get back to manhattan or bk is to take a cab to the N/Q/R station at Astoria blvd ($10, 10 minute cab) then train into city (20 mins to union square)

    The Biergarten in Terminal C belts out indie jams and you can order all the sauerkraut and beer your heart desires via iPad, which is awesome because people suck.

    Bring your phone charger, and plug into the abundant outlets to access the magnificent power supply. Amazingly, there is no extra fee to do this. But don't bring an extra bag, that'll cost you.

    have always preferred LGA over JFK/EWR. a little bit closer and a little bit smaller. it's no nonsense. centurion lounge (even though it's pre-security) is a nice new addition.

    If you have your Amex Platinum you have the lounges covered here. Delta's club is great and the New Centurion Lounge in the other terminal is excellent (and has a better view).

    Bisoux is fantastic food and adult-beverage wise. Just make sure you don't get too caught up in sampling the goods or else you might get paged for your flight. Not that I'd know. ;-)

    Pro tip: in the mornings in terminal D, the main food court's coffee shop can have a line a mile long. There are 2 others deeper in with no line. Same coffee

    There are multiple taxi stands. Everyone from your flight will go to the nearest one and stand in line for an hour. Be savvy and take a 5min walk to the *next* stand which will usually have no line.

    If you're travelling or arriving to LGA factor 2.5x more time to get to and from the airport due to the construction work currently going on.
