JFK International Airport To Parker New York


JFK International Airport is 17 miles (28km) from the hotel. These 17 miles can take 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on the traffic condition! Unlike when you arrive in many cities, we do not recommend renting a car here; it will not serve you well as traffic and parking alone will drive you crazy! Below are a number of ways to get into town:


Corporate Raider/RockStar Style

The Concierge can organize private transportation for you from the airport. The driver will meet you in the airport and accompany you to the hotel. Cars start at $195.59 for a Sedan. These prices include tips, tolls and parking. Should you decide that you would like to book a private car please e-mail your flight details, your credit card number and expiration date directly to concierge@parkernewyork.com. Please include contact information and a mobile phone number to allow us to confirm your arrangements.


A Real Ride

From JFK into Manhattan take a yellow cab for a flat fee of $52.00 plus tip and tolls. Instruct the driver to take the 59th Street Bridge and you will save the cost of the bridge toll. Be sure to give the cab driver our motor entrance address, 119 West 56th St. between 6th and 7th Avenues. This is the most practical way into town, and will get you into the swing of NYC fast!


Lyft. After you land and have your bags open the Lyft app to find your pick-up zone. Once you are at the pick up zone select your ride type and tap request your driver who will find you at the pick up zone you selected.


Uber pick up is available from your app by choosing a ride option then once you have your lagguage head outside of baggage claim on the Arrivlas level and confirm your terminal and door number so your driver can find you.
