    He “assumed the burden of seeing LaGuardia Airport & NYC & his life & clothes & body through the disappointed eyes of his parents.” —Jonathan Franzen, “The Failure” Read more

    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.

    Like regular laguardia, but a little less shitty

    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.

    Come in through the old Art Deco terminal. It has a beautiful flight mural.

    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.

    Free magazines on the way to the gates. Nice!

    Check in using your iPhone. 100% paperless! Never need to print a boarding pass or mess with stupid conformation codes again!

    This is the only way to fly from NYC to Chicago.

    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

    Coffee and juice are free at this terminal at the table near the windows. Nonetheless, it is horrible coffee.

    Grab a bagel on the jetway

    Make sure you check to see if you're leaving from this terminal...there's no way to walk from main terminal to here! Take either the free shuttle or a taxi...

    This place is desperately in need of renovation. Looks like something out of the 80s.

    It is HOT HOT HUMID in the atrium. Totally not cool.

    6:00 AM. Alone in unmanned, empty terminal. Security line doesn't open till 7:00 AM. No employees on duty anywhere. Ghost town.

    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.

    Michael Moses · November 9, 2011
  • Rafique J.

    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

    9 times out of 10 your cab won't know what this place is, so keep your eyes peeled for exit 5

    Best airport terminal in a big city. Security is really quick, seats are comfortable and food is good. Nice work Delta!

    Shitty food but not a bad bar scene

    Alexandra Haack · May 17, 2013
  • Deep G.

    hop the M60 bus and skip the cab --You can be anywhere in manhattan within 30-45 minutes.

    A miserable place filled with miserable people.

    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.

    David Feldman · February 25, 2013
  • John B.

    Use the old entrance for checkin while building under construction (Feb 2013)

    The only way to go if flying to Chicago, fast, efficient, the lounge area has comfy chairs with charging stations galore.

    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.

    Michael Moses · October 13, 2011
  • Anthony R.

    Fastest security line in NYC. You can get your boarding pass and be at the gate in 10 minutes.

    Anthony Rallo · September 25, 2011

    Any time your gate begins with SH, you're in this terminal.

    Check out the blast from the past cafeteria, although incredibly greasy, the pizza is kinda good.

    If you fly a lot, the Gogo monthly pass is the way to go. Monthly unlimited Internet on all Gogo equipped flights using any Wi-Fi device. Starts immediately, renews automatically, cancel anytime.

  • Morgan J.

    if youd flight is arriving into this terminal, call a uber instead of waiting on a taxi. Even though they occasionally have an attendant they still have a hard time getting open cabs here quickly

    Morgan J. · June 4, 2014
  • Lenny A.

    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.
