I will be going to new york in 7 days and I have not booked my flight ticket or hotel. I've checked out some quotes for flights (I'm coming from Toronto) and it ranges from $400 to $450 (YYZ to JFK). I've also considered landing in LGA or Newark since it seems to be cheaper. But I am meeting a family member at the JFK airport on the day of my arrival, so if I do book a flight landing in LGA or Newark, I will need to find transportation to get to JFK. What is the cheapest way I can get from those airports to JFK?
Any recommendations on hotels and flights that accept last minute booking that delivers is the best deal possible? I have a mind set on hotels near times square just so that it's easier to get around but I'm open to near by locations as well.
If you have any tips or recommendations for a first-timer on how to get around, where to go, essential things to bring, maps/navigation or anything please let me know!
I appreciate you taking the time to read this, have a great day!
