New York City has two airports located in its city limits: LaGuardia (LGA) and John F. Kennedy (JFK).
Below are instructions on how to get to the Belvedere Hotel from the airport.
You will need a metrocard for all buses and subways (trains). They accept cash and cards. Each ride is $2.75 so get enough value on your card for all people in your group. The system only allows up to 3 swipes on a card so you will need more than one card if you have 4 + people in your group. Children under 44" ride for free up to 3 children. Cost of first card is $5.50 - cost of card and two swipes. You will need to reload at a kiosk if you plan on using it more than getting in/out of the city.
Transfers - One free transfer, when you take either a bus or the train and need to transfer to a bus or a train.
