There's nothing direct from the airport. You need to go into Manhattan for a train or a bus. You can take the Airtrain at the airport to Jamaica Queens. Change for either a Long Island Railroad train to Penn station or the E train subway (a bit cheaper but takes longer) to Penn station. At Penn station, you'd take an Amtrak.com

train to Albany. There are Metro North commuter trains that go close to Albany that are less expensive but you'd need someone to pick you up there. I think the stop is Wassaic.

There are also several bus companies (Greyhound, Trailways, Gotobus) that go to Albany for a lot less money. The train is typically faster, more reliable (not subject to traffic) and more comfortable. The buses leave from different locations depending which one you take.

Check Amtrak's schedules on www.amtrak.com

Amtrak connects New York Penn Station with Albany. Trains are fast and reliable.

The JFK AirTrain connects the airport with Jamaica. The Long Island Rail Road (commuter trains) and the E train (subway) connect Jamaica with New York Penn Station.
