Sorry i know this kind of question has been asked a hundred times but i couldnt find any info on my specific situation.
Im travelling to NYC in May and flying SYD-LAX-JFK and my flight arrives in JFK at 7:40PM on a Saturday evening, i want to know the best way to reach the Edison Hotel @ Time square, i know by train will most likely be the fastest but im not sure about the idea of jostling through the streets on a saturday evening with our luggage, i have read a few people suggesting catching the train to Penn station and then getting a cab from there, will it be possible to get a cab from Penn on a Saturday night? Is there a better station to get off at?
I would like to catch a cab all the way from JFK but will the time square area be in total gridlock at 9:30ish on a Saturday night?
Just looking for the quickest but also most conveniet way to get to the hotel (helicopter is out of the question as suggested in another thread hehe)
