Booked our hotel (Country Inn & Suites) Long Island City and our flight is coming in via JFK - trying to figure out if there's a way to get to our hotel other than by cab. I tried to figure out if the AirTran was a possibility but got totally confused. Also not sure if there's a subway that we can catch or not. Its all so confusing. Can anyone help? Is the only way to get from JFK to our hotel in Long Island city only by cab or is there public transportation that would be less expensive that will come close to where we're staying?
