airport layover
 
Does anyone have advice on what to do on a five hour layover at JFK other then going to the Admirals Club. Appreciate any help you can give. Thanks

Unfortunately JFK is not located in a desireable part of NYC .You might just want to find a place to relax ,have a meal and sleep.

After your 5 hr layover, prepare yourself for the possibility of further delays.

We were there last week,and could not push pack, and had a wait,and then when we did , we had a 45 minute delay for traffic.Given my druthers, I will never fly through this airport again.

JFK is the preferred airport for those of us living in NYC and its vicinity .Its much preferable to LaGuardia ,Newark ,MacArthur and Westchester .Essentially JFK is the lesser of the 4 evils.

I'll take Newark..had no issues there.

The negatives about Newark are that if you are flying to NYC to vacation there you are totally out of the way in Newark.

It is much easier driving around in the JFK complex than Newark .

If you have access to the Admirals club it beats sitting elsewhere.

Newark is not so bad - you can take NJT or Amtrak and be in midtown in 30 minutes.

Last time we had a long layover at JFK, friends picked us up and we went into Manhattan for dinner. We have a great steakhouse in Tribeca (I believe) that we love to eat at when in New York. Five hours might be ok if you can get in the special security lines on your return to JFK.
