    Airtrain it back to Manhattan if you're travelling solo. It takes an hour and it's only $7 compared to a $50 cab where you can get stuck in traffic. Just follow the signs.

    I can't count how many times I've traveled to and from this airport. It's my second home and the starting point of all of my big journeys. ;-)

    The JetBlue terminal has a board w/ menus for all eateries, so you can decide where to go before schlepping up and down the terminal. Or try the long work bar w/ free WiFi. Read more

    Need some rest from New York’s skyscrapers? Go visit “The High Line” in Chelsea! This public park built on a defunct railway that runs 30 feet above Manhattan really is extraordinary and relaxing.

    Air travel can be tough on the knees and joints so while in flight, rotate the ankles in a circular motion one at a time. Then, sit back, relax and enjoy your flight.

    If you're headed to Manhattan, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station, then the LIRR to Penn Station. Costs $10 - $15, depending when you're traveling & takes half the time of the E train.

    The JetBlue terminal has an unrivaled culinary monopoly. Deep Blue’s sushi menu is by Buddakan’s Michael Schulson, and Brasserie La Vie is run by former chefs at NYC hot spots Balthazar and Pastis.

    No matter what airline your fly, make sure you're at the gate 45 minutes to an hour prior to departure. Doors close 10 minutes prior to departure. Airplanes don't wait for you, YOU wait for airplanes.

    Fly JetBlue or Virgin America, nicer planes with more in-flight entertainment and they fly out of the less crowded International Terminals.
