I assume you won't be renting a car....so the easiest way is to use a car service. There are some local ones I can get you contact information for if you want.

You can also get to Spring Lake by public transportation...Take the AirTrain from JFK to Jamaica Station. There transfer to the Long Island Railroad into NY Penn Station. There you can get a New Jersey Transit Train to Spring Lake. www.njtransit.com

I don't suppose you can chance your flight from JFK to Newark?

And while the public transit option is possible, it won't be fun after a long flight- it will take four trains.

I think then your best option would be to stay in either manhattan or Queens.

By public transit Spring Lake to Manahattan is two hours each way.

And in July, Spring Lake is not cheap- its high season.

Frankly the only way commuting daily from Spring Lake to Manhattan makes any sense is if you are staying with someone for free

Are you staying in Spring Lake and going into Manhattan every day? Are you staying with someone or in a hotel?

Taking the train will be cheaper than renting a car.

Hey AlexinSalit:-) I couldn't agree more about changing airports.. if you can get a flight to EWR, all the better! FWIW, www.njtransit.com/ will show schedules with train changes at either NJ Penn Station or Long Branch coming to/from NY Penn Station;-) You've got a good 2 hour commute each way.. but a wonderful beachfront Town.. my go-to place during the Summer months prior to my annual Sept Greek isle odyssey;-) Best and enJOY!
