Heading to NYC in three weeks.  Need to book the airfare... oops! Today! We will not have a car and will only be able to utilize public transportation (rail, metro, bus or taxi).

 

What do Insiders think?  Which airport location provides:

  1. the easiest public transportation options between the airport and Midtown Manhattan?
  2. the safest public transportation options between the airport and Midtown Manhattan?
  3. the most economical public transportation options between the airport and Midtown Manhattan?
  4. the overall best option between the two locations?

 

Additional question.  How safe is the subway in Manhattan?  How safe is Manhattan?  If we walk from the subway station to the hotel with our rollaboards, will we be wearing an implied sign that says, "easy target for robbers and muggers?"  You can tell I know very little about being in NYC.

 

Please and Thanks!
