Hey all. I'm looking at summer trips for, well obviously, this summer. Only problem is I'm not old enough to rent a car. My question is if I flew into LaGuardia is it relativly easy to get to Manhattan using public transport? Also, got any other ideas for good cities to visit? Boston is on top cause of the ease from getting BOS to downtown. Thanks guys.

A cab ride to Midtown Manhattan will cost you about $28.00. A water shuttle ride (go over to the Delta Shuttle terminal) to Midtown Manhattan will cost you about $22.00. You can also take the subway from LaGuardia (I believe you have to take a short shuttle bus ride to connect), but it's a long ride into the city that way.

I always took the Q33 from LGA into the city. It's about a 15 mintue ride to the end of the route, 74th St-Jackson Heights subway station. That bus runs pretty frequent. On the subway, you have many choices to get to Manhattan, E/F express, R/V local or 7 train. The 7 train is elevated and gives a great view of the city. I'd either take the E/F or 7, if I were you. The 7 train runs to Times Sq, the E runs to Chambers St dowtown (where the WTC was) via 8th Ave and the F runs via 6th Ave.

Take the M60 from your terminal. This bus goes into Manhattan and will get there in about 20 minutes from LGA. Basically, it runs across 125th street, where you can transfer to the 1/2/3/4/5/6/9/A/B/C/D trains which will all take you downtown (you will have to get off at the appropriate avenue for depending what train you take)...
In total, it should take you 45minutes to an hour to get to midtown from LGA by this method, and will only cost $1.50. Cab will be like 25 minutes, but will run you about $25...

Actually, a judge today ordered the MTA rollback the fares to $1.50 after finding the MTA deliberately deceived the riding public of deficits and figures. The MTA now has two weeks to rollback the fares, but then again, this is the MTA, so they'll probably drag this out, and we'll never see the fare lowered...
But in any case, the judge ordered it, so we'll see....
