    It depends where in Manhattan and how much money you want to spend and how much luggage you will have and how much time you have.

    JFK: AirTrain to Jamaica station, then LIRR in to Penn Station.

    LGA: cab, or at least a cab to the nearest subway station, but you don't wanna do that. Cab.

    I think a cab from LGA will go pretty much anywhere in Manhattan for around $35.

    ...Except don't take AirTran/LIRR with lots of luggage because you'll have to haul it up and down stairs. And if your final destination is anywhere near where the A/C/E stops, you should probably just take the subway and not LIRR.

    ...And if you don't want to pay for a $30 cab from LGA, you can take the M60 bus, but don't take it with a lot of luggage, and it will only take you uptown so if you're going anywhere below W 106th, you're going to have to connect.

    Etc etc etc. It's complicated.

    True. If you have a lot of luggage you should probably not attempt public transportation at all ever in any city. But most especially not in NY.

    I have to say that the Washington DC metro is pretty luggage-friendly. Lots of empty space and escalators and elevators. The downside being that, you're in fucking Washington DC.

    Washington is a great city to jog in. If it's not too hot and not too cold and not raining or snowing.

    Ha. Washington, DC is also a great city in which to get drunk. But that's where my praise ends.

    I love how Titus Andronicus has the power to melt your stony facade. This post would be completely at home in one of the Radiohead wank threads.

    This is the power of Titus Andronicus intersecting with the power of The Replacements. This is like the plasma streams crossing in Ghostbusters. It's that awesome.

    The RS article also implies that there will be an act representing every act in the book. Which means there will be some kind of addition for both Husker Du and Mission of Burma.

    Oh, I should have been more specific.
    No luggage. Want to get into city during the day to wander aimlessly in the city.

    Then at some point, go to Terminal 5. Then later, back to the airport. At that point, I'll have a friend with me, so it won't be so daunting going back.

    I've been to NY before, but I had taken Amtrak, and that took me to Penn Station, which made things a lot easier.
    I'm doing this all on a shoestring budget, otherwise I would definitely take a cab. But I don't wanna do that if I don't have to.

    when i flew into newark there was a bus that i took into the city, think it was around $20 round trip. maybe they have routes out of the other airports? i'll try and find the name of the company

    $25 round trip:
    http://coachusa1.reachlocal.net/olym...arkairport.asp

    here is one from laguardia and kennedy that departs every half hour, $12 and $17 one way, $21 and $27 round trip:
    http://www.nyairportservice.com/

    buses don't seem to run late at night, so getting back you may need to cab/sub.

    no luggage at all? then you could probably walk from LGA to the subway. and the airtrain from JFK is definitely your best bet.

    Thanks. I'll look into these.
    And is it just a simple subway ride from city to get to Terminal 5?
    I just don't wanna get on an "unsafe" subway line, so to speak. I totally look like someone who's an easy target

    I remember being in Harlem at 3.30am one night... That was interesting.

    As long as it's not 3am, you're fine. There are no unsafe subway lines.

    And I think the closest subway to Terminal 5 is probably Columbus Circle, right? So if you're going from JFK, you can take Airtran to the Howard Beach subway station, and then take the A train all the way up. Or alternately, get there a little faster by taking Airtran to Archer Ave and then the E train to 57th St/7th Ave.

    Dude, I live in Harlem, I weigh like 100 pounds, and I'm always walking by myself at around 3:30 AM when I leave the cafe that my school always goes to after classes. Unless you're flashing around your electronics and wandering into dark alleys, there isn't an unsafe place in Manhattan.

    Terminal 5 is by Columbus Circle. You can take the 1 or the A or the C, I believe. There might be a couple others.

    Any suggestions for a good restaurant on the west side somewhere above Houston and below 125th, which would be good for a party of 8 for dinner including one toddler, and has entrees under the $20 mark? I need help.

    So it looks like LGA is prolly the most ideal 'port to fly into, according to you guys.

    So what subway do i take fromt the city to get to Terminal 5?

    I could google all of this, but you guys have been helpful so far...

    And I'm sure Harlem is lovely, but the night I was there was a bit seedy and creepy and weird, and I was just glad when I got out of that area.
