    Would you like to try Obama's favorite burger when your traveling thru NY's LGA Airport? Go to Five Guy's Burgers and Fries in the central terminal before security at the American Airlines gates.

    For $2.25 or one Metrocard swipe, you can get downtown via the MTA M60 bus which connects to the N/R Train, also goes across bridge to 125th . During rush hour, its TONS faster than a cab.

    Grab a taxi from the stand near American Airlines - all the way to the right, around the corner. Hardly ever any people!

    In case of Armageddon, this place will be an obvious target. Avoid. Think. Survive. Maybe.

    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.

    There's a special place in hell for airports who don't provide free Wi-fi.

    Don't come here hungover. Gah! There's no good food unless you feel like throwing up an Auntie Anne's pretzel hotdog.

    Don't ever EVER fly @AmericanAir if you can avoid it. These people are the WORST. Bad customer service, nasty attitudes, total disorganization, and this lady, Pearl, is Satan in a red jacket.

    I can't believe how overall crappy and disorganized this airport is. We need to level it and start over.

    Sit on the left side of the plane coming into and leaving the city. I find that usually gives you a great view of Manhattan.

    Of the seven parking structures at LaGuardia, Parking Structure 1 is the only long-term one. Don't forget your keys and have a great flight!

    Beware - all food places have been taken over by a company called Cibo. No more Starbucks, Smoothie King, or Burger King. Everything is nice and expensive.

    Need a cheap way into Manhattan? Take the M60 public bus ($2.50) to the Astoria Blvd. N/Q subway station. Catch the Manhattan-bound train there. (Buses take MetroCards or coins only; no dollar bills.)

    If you're a misanthrope, order a burger in the Delta terminal by using a touch-type computer screen. You don't have to speak to a person! (Better tip: eat before LGA. Food options here are poor.) -WV

    I hear Delta stands for Doesn't Ever Leave The Airport! Have a few at one of the many depressing places in the Delta terminal. You may scratch your eyeballs a few times

    Follow all the common travel rules and you'll be fine. Don't be a brat. Don't be a complainer. Be nice to customer service - they don't make the rules or control the weather. Would you rather be takin

    the easiest way to get here is take th N train to the Astoria Blvd stop. exit on the east side to the triangle and catch the M60 bus. American Airlines is 1st stop, Delta is 2nd...
