So we FINALLY arrive in NYC next Monday!
After 20+ hours of travel time from Australia, we're very likely to just want to jump in a cab to get to our hotel. However on another thread, it was mentioned that being Memorial Day the traffic could be pretty bad so I want to make sure I have public transport directions correct as another option!
This is what I've figured out using the forum and Google. If someone could confirm, or correct, that would be great!!
1) Airtrain from JFK to Jamaica - we don't pay our fare until we arrive at Jamaica?
2) E train subway from Jamaica to Lexington / 53rd St
3) Connect with the downtown 6 train subway (look for the signs) to Grand Central
4) Walk down Lexington from Grand Central to our hotel
