Making your way to New York’s airports

It’s possible to connect to the AirTrain from the NYC subway and the Long Island Railway, which makes JFK reasonably accessible by public transit.

EWR’s three terminals are designated A, B, and C. Newark is also fairly accessible by public transportation. There’s a NJ Transit train from New York Penn Station which arrives at the Newark Airport Train Station. This is where you’ll connect to the AirTrain Newark service.

The public transport options to this airport are limited, often involving multiple buses, and can be awkward and time-consuming, especially for those with luggage.

Arriving in San Francisco

San Francisco is one of those legendary American cities that feel instantly familiar, due in part to the huge presence it has in both movies and television. The city is as lovely as it appears on the screen, though rather more complex. Distinctive neighborhoods with long, lively histories give San Francisco much of its distinctive flavor.

On a first visit, many of the iconic sights and experiences are more than worth the time. A trip across the beautiful red bridge, a long day spent exploring the riches of Golden Gate Park, a burrito in The Mission, a trolley through the Castro, a somber afternoon in Alcatraz.

Art lovers are spoiled for choice, with some of the country’s best museums at your fingertips. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is legendary, while niche galleries and museums like the Cartoon Art Museum and the Museum of Craft and Folk Art cater to every taste.
