Need to get from Brooklyn to LGA for 7:45AM plane to Toronto

Hi there, my family and I are driving to new york next Monday returning on Thursday, I'll be driving with them to New York however I am taking an early flight back on Thursday because of two job interviews that I was having trouble rescheduling.

We will be staying near 8th Ave and 53th st in Brooklyn and I need help to figure out how to get to LGA for the 7:45AM flight to Toronto.

The only efficient way is to take some form of car service. You can pre-book one through your hotel (they'll know a good car service in the neighborhood - no need to use one of the big Manhattan ones), or download the Uber app on your phone and call it from your phone when you need it (at that location, allow about 15 mins for the car to arrive.) You'll need to be at the airport by 6:45, so I'd call the car for 5:45 just in case.

8th Ave and 53rd street? That is in the heart of Chinatown in Brooklyn and I am almost sure there isn't a hotel there.

Now that I look at it, Samguan has previous posts about attending a family wedding in Chinatown. Pretty sure he's staying with family.

In that case, his family members living there will probably know a local car service. Same rules apply.

Thanks, I've taken flight to Toronto from LGA 6 months ago. It was the same as domestic flight, just clear security and you're in the secured area waiting to be boarded. I think 1.5h is good enough.

Loads of good/inexpensive car services in that area(my mom lives on 49th Street and 10th Ave and I grew up in that area.) Definitely go with a local place.

**hi there, by car service, do we mean taxi?**

Nope. You won't find a taxi at that time of the morning in that area. You can call a local car service and they will pick you up. You can call 15 minutes before you are ready to go.

Yeah, a taxi is something you hail, a car service is something you call. You want the kind you call.

For these kinds of situations I always call the night before and schedule the car. Prevents worry.
