Arrival by Airplane
Getting To and From Harlem 

Depending on the airport you use, options for traveling to campus vary. For most airports a yellow cab is the simplest way to travel to our office. At LaGuardia, city buses are a viable option, while at Newark and JFK there is AirTrain service that connects to the subways.



When arriving by airplane, the easiest and recommended way to travel to campus is to take a yellow medallion taxicab directly from the airport. We highly recommend that you use this method of transportation if you are relatively unfamiliar with New York City. Taxi fare should be about $30 from LaGuardia, $45 from JFK, and $70 from Newark. You will also have to pay for tolls and tip.



Subway service is available from Kennedy Airport, but the trip takes at least 90 minutes and is very difficult with luggage. Take the JFK AirTrain to the nearby subway station, where you can then take the A subway toward Manhattan. Transfer to the 1 uptown subway at the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station. For schedule and fare information, please visit

From Newark, EWR AirTrain service runs to several Manhattan locations where you can connect with a subway or bus. The most straightforward path is to take NJ Transit to New York-Penn Station, where you can transfer from NJ Transit to the MTA, for a small additional fare, to the 1 uptown subway line.
