Directions from the Airport

The metropolitan New York area has three airports. The closest to the Bronx (Rose Hill) campus is LaGuardia (LGA). Next closest is John F. Kennedy (JFK). The Newark airport in New Jersey is somewhat further, and transportation from there to the Bronx is complicated, time consuming, and expensive. The best (cheapest) option for transportation from LaGuardia or Kennedy airport is taking a yellow taxi or Uber. You will have to pay tolls and gratuity on top of the amount shown on the meter.  The bridge toll is approximately $6. Gratuities are generally 15-20% of the meter total (excluding tolls).
