There are three area airports—Liberty Newark International, LaGuardia, and JFK International. Be sure to allow enough traveling time when heading to a NYC-area airport, as traffic in New York is always heavy. In rain, snow, or rush hour and during VIP visits to the city, traffic gets very tied up. A good rule of thumb is to depart Manhattan two hours before your flight departs.
Train transportation between Syracuse and New York is provided by Amtrak. Call 800.872.7245 for schedules.
