    Best way to fly in and out of new york. It's like a small town airport (if that small town was mostly populated by rich business folks).

    Both the exterior and interior were designated as landmarks in 1980 including a polychromatic terra-cotta frieze of flying fish and central rotunda encircled by a sprawling mural by James Brooks.

    If you've got time - check out the retro cafeteria to the left of check-in (down the hall in the atrium). It's cheap + greasy -- and completely delightful.

    people going through this terminal seem more likely to understand what one is supposed to do in an airport security line (remove laptop, take off shoes, put objects in bins, etc.) it's glorious.

    It's a hidden jewel, you get off the plane your suitcases will be on the baggage carousel promptly, and you'll be in a cab in no time. In less than 10 minutes

    Enjoy the Marine Terminal while you can. The FAA recently approved the DL-US route swap, and the two airlines are swapping their terminals @ LGA too. Soon this will be USAir shuttle flights.

    I know the terminal is small but delta should still put a small sky club in here so we dont have to pay for overpriced drinks during inevitable flight cancellations

    The free coffee tastes like feet... the pay coffee is OK but a large cup (about the size of a Grande) costs over $4. Wait to get on the plane if you can.

    Go like a pro, save time and money. Skip the taxi and hop the M60 bus ($2.25 w/ a metro card) to Astoria Blvd. Free transfer up the stairs to the N/Q train. You'll be anywhere in midtown in ~ 45 mins.

    You can get here 20 minutes before your flight yet still be on time. Not advisable, but it's a super quick security line because of all of the business travelers.
