Anyone know how I can get to the city from JFK the cheapest way?
This sort of depends on where you’re going . You can take the AirTrain from JFK to a couple of different subway stations depending on where you need to get in the city. If you’re going to midtown, take it to Jamaica Station and then take the E train. If you’re going below 14th, take the AirTrain to Howard Beach and then take the A train. You can also take buses into the city from the Jamaica station. I don’t know if you’re coming with other people, but there’s a flat fare of $52 to take a cab into the city (plus tolls and tip, etc.).
