Both JFK and Newark are connected to NYC by train BUT the Newark train is currently not running due to repairs through July 15. So between now and then JFK is better.

LaGuardia is actually the closest airport to Times Square. It only takes 20 minutes cab ride with no traffic. I also tend to think there is less traffic generally on the route from LGA. The downside of LGA is that it has a more cumbersome public transit option (you take a city bus to the subway, whereas at JFK you take a monorail service.) LGA is mostly a regional airport however so if you are flying from the UK, you probably won't have any flights to LGA available. So if the choice is between JFK and Newark, I'd take JFK. But that being said, my primary factor would be which flight costs less!

If you're arriving before July 15th then flyi9ng into JFK would be worth a small premium. After that I'd just choose on the basis of fares and convenience of flight times.

If you are flying in from the UK, your options are EWR or JFK. If you fly into JFK, there is a flat fare of $52 from there to Times Square to take a cab.
