Getting to New York
New York area airports
There are three airports in the New York area: LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy (JFK), and Newark Liberty. Taxi service is available from all three airports; make sure to use the official taxi queues (and do not accept rides from people who approach you outside of the official queue). There is bus service directly from LaGuardia airport to Columbia University (M60 Select Bus Service). JFK and Newark airports are connected to the Long Island Railroad and New Jersey Transit trains lines.
Trains and buses
Several buses arrive in New York at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
Getting around New York by subway
The subway is one of the easiest ways to get around the city.
