Really depends on where you are staying. If you are staying in LI or places that the LIRR service, then you can take it into Manhattan. If you are staying in nYc or the other 4 boroughs, then your Metro card will work for the bus or subway. The LIRR and subway/bus lines are really 2 totally different means of transport. You would have to let us know where you are staying for a proper answer...

There are several ways to get from JFK to Manhattan, but it depends on where your hotel is located, how much luggage you'll have, whether stairs will be an issue.

metro card does not work with LIRR. Depending on where you are staying, if there is a station near by, you can use either one to get into Manhattan. Most likely there is a subway station for the use of the metro card to get into the city. Plan your stops is a good idea.

Metrocards are not valid on LIRR, you must buy a separate ticket from a booth or machine at Jamaica station. 7-Day Metrocards do not work on the AirTrain from JFK to Jamaica, either. Fare for the AirTrain is $5, payable only by prepaid Metrocard (there are machines at the fare gates).

Travel Tips for New York City

WANNA SEE A HARDTOP

by caravaggio

its huge and hard to find in tall NY city. its beautiest part (hardtop:) is also very far away although you
were standing in front of the building. Maybe its better to look at it closer in intro of the Sex and the City:)

Ride the subway

by bottleofdoom

What trip would be complete without riding the NYC subway. We rode it to Coney Island which took us about an hour because we had to keep switching trains. Different trains run at different hours during the weekday as compared to the weekend. Since this was Wednesday afternoon, we had to transfer several times. There are maps at the stations that you can look at before you buy your ticket. It looks daunting at first, but it's actually quite easy once you know where you're going. It's also helpful to get a map before you go to the station. Marjorie had plenty of maps for us at the apartment. Once you figure out which trains to take, study the ticket options because there are different passes to suit your needs. Then hop on your train and and let NYC do the driving! You get to see neighborhoods of NYC.

Because the Big Apple is so...

by Sanet

Because the Big Apple is so overwhelming at first I will definately recommend a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of the city as well as a circle line cruise to get yourself orientated Time Square at night! The atmosphere is something you cannot describe. Thousands of people just everywhere with lights all around. Really an amazing sight.

on sucking out the tasty broth

by richiecdisc

We got from NYC's Chinatown to the one in Flushing in something like 20 minutes, about half the time it would take on even the best train connection in town and this was at rush hour!

They dropped us off and immediately we started wondering how we were going to find another one back to The City so kept ourselves constrained to the small sketchy map I had printed out from the Internet in hopes of finding the food treasures we had read about. We headed right for the soup dumplings at Na Shian Dumpling House on Prince Street and readied ourselves for the initiation into the soup dumpling culture we had only read about. Watching the other entirely Chinese clientele bite off the top of the Hersey Kiss-shaped dumplings and suck out the tasty broth was worth the trip in itself but it was only after doing it ourselves when we realized what all the fuss was about: it was one tasty broth! We had a couple bamboo baskets of them and if we were to do it all over again, we would have ordered something else if we could have sorted out what to choose but off we went in search of other culinary delights.

We headed to the Flushing Mall nearby in search of steamed dumplings swimming in red pepper oil and minced garlic only to find it closing for the night. My eyes begged special treatment but the tired looking owner was having no part of my ploy for sympathy. Disappointed but not entirely dejected we sped over to a street vendor we had spotted en route and ordered a couple lamb kebabs from a northern province of China. Delicious at only a dollar a stick and much needed for the freezing walk to the next stop. We descended into the foreboding Golden Mall in search of a cold noodle dish called liang pi but even after numerous trips to Southeast Asia, this grubby mall-in-the-wall was a bit too daunting for us and besides, it was freezing out and looking for cold noodles at this point seemed senseless.

How Do You Pronounce It?

by TexasDave

A main street (and subway stop) near Greenwich Village is Houston Street. BUT... in NYC it is not pronounced like the city in Texas. So if you don't want to be taken for a tourist say it like New Yorkers do...HOUSE-ton street.
