Transport suggestion from JFK to Manhattan

Hello,

We are a family of five ( 2 adults and 3 children) We will arrive Thu July 14 laround 21.30 at JFK for a three week round trip and have to go to Avenue B close to junction East 3 rd street.

On Monday morning we need to go to the airport to pick up a car

Are there recommendations about which transportservice you have used and what would be the price for the 5 of us.

Many thanks in advance

Harry

Many thanks

I assume you're staying with family or friends, since there are no hotels in alphabet city and apartment retals are illegal? I'd ask them if they have a local car service that they like.

Ah, an illegal apartment rental. And I see you've been warned repeatedly in the past that it's an illegal rental? You do realize that the city is actively cracking down on these places, and you run the real risk of winding up in the street with no place to stay? You need to be more concerend with finding a safe and legal place to stay than with getting to and from the airport.

BB - I've warned them that, but they repeatedly ignore it, and still haven't posted a budget. We've got their dates, they've been recommended places that are legal, so what's the point. I'm thinking it's not worth helping them anymore.

You've booked the Best Western but you need an airport transfer to the illegal East Village Suites which may or may not still be there in July? I'm confused.

The City is actively cracking down on these illegal hotels since the much stronger law went into effect on May 1st. The city is cracking down on everything from food trucks in Midtown to illegal hotels. By the way, effective May 23rd there is no smoking allowed in public parks like Central Park - no kidding.
