Getting to JFK From Staten Island
Getting to JFK from Staten Island may be a bit difficult, but not at all impossible. Car services and taxis will be fairly expensive. To take public transportation, hop on a Brooklyn-bound MTA bus, which should go over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. It should let you off in southern Brooklyn, near 86th St. and 4th Ave, where you can take the R train to Atlantic Terminal. From there, take the LIRR to Jamaica station, then the AirTrain. Alternately, if you are in northern Staten Island, you can take the Staten Island Ferry to Manhattan, then use any of the options listed in the ‘Manhattan’ section.
Getting to JFK From the Bronx
Getting to JFK from the Bronx may also be a bit tedious, though not quite as hard as Staten Island, since it has regular subway service and Metro North service. Depending on where you are, make your way to the closest subway or Metro North station and get to one of the major hubs in Manhattan, then follow the Manhattan > JFK instructions.
Getting to JFK From Long Island
Long Island is long, so you may either be right outside of Queens, near where JFK is already, in which case you should just take a cab or car service, or you may be further out. From many of the town centers on Long Island, there are often shuttle buses that can take you into the city and/or JFK airport, but the best bet is to get to the Long Island Railroad and head towards the city. Almost all LIRR service filters through the Jamaica station, which is the JFK stop where you can transfer to the AirTrain for all terminals.
