Getting to Brooklyn


Airlines land at three New York metropolitan-area airports. LaGuardia (LGA), in Queens, 13 miles from Park Slope or 7 miles from Williamsburg, is the best option, usually 25-30 minutes by taxi. John F. Kennedy (JFK), also in Queens, 14 miles from Park Slope and 16 miles from Williamsburg, takes about 35-45 minutes. The least convenient option is Newark Liberty (EWR), in New Jersey. Though the airport may be 20 miles on the GPS from Park Slope, it will take as much as an hour to get there. Plus, what you may save on airfare flying into Newark, you’ll make up for in the bridge-and-tunnel tolls and exorbitant taxi fares, which can run you close to $80.


New York City is serviced by all domestic and major international airlines, including major and discount U.S. carriers like American, Continental, Spirit, and JetBlue, as well as international airlines like Air France, British Airways, and Japan Airways.
