Next Up, NYC Airport
JFK International is the airport most tourists use when departing New York City. It is found in Queens, roughly 12 miles to the southeast of Lower Manhattan. Ranked consistently for the highest volume of international passenger traffic and freight transportation, JFK is part of the biggest airport system in the United States and second on the planet.
Equipped with a total of 6 terminals and 128 gates, the airport has undergone many renovations and expansions since first opening in 1948. Layovers are common with the high daily traffic congestion, but fortunately, there is plenty to do for travelers at the facility. Terminal four is the go-to place for shopping; five has live musical performances, and one has a food court on its upper level.
