Getting from JFK to Chinatown

Hi all,

Myself and a friend are visiting New York in December and were wondering if anybody could advise us of the easiest (preferably cheapest and most direct) way to get from JFK airport to Chinatown?

Many thanks!

Have you read the FAQ page on airport transfers? It explains all of your options:

As you can probably guess, the cheapest (public transportation) is different from the most direct (a taxi).

You'd have to tell us where in Chinatown you're heading but generally the JFK AirTrain in the direction of Howard Beach and the A train to Canal Street will get you to Chinatown. If you're looking for the other end of Chinatown (east side), you'd take the JFK AirTrain to Jamaica and get the J train to Canal Street.

We're staying at the Hotel 91 in E. Broadway so would that be nearer Canal St? Thanks for the help x

You can map any public transit directions via www.hopstop.com. So enter your hotel address there and you'll get all your options and costs.
