It costs $11 on NJ Transit to EWR from Manhattan (not $25), the $23 fare is for Amtrak (alot cheaper and nicer than a cab).

Guess what, so are the Giants and Jets. And so is the area's best Basketball team
I still like the Knicks though, my friend Erica from high school has been a Knick's City Dancer for 4 years. I also have a funny story about hanging out with "Herb" Williams down at the Westin Rio Mar in Puerto Rico
The PATH is much better than any NYC Subway, by far. And if it's connected to EWR it would be a huge success, especially since the PATH serves some of NYC's best tourist destinations in the Village and Herald Square. Also the PATH is the center piece to a new $4 Billion transit hub in Lower Manhattan which will draw huge crowds of both visitors and business folks.
"let alone NYS"
On the contrary EWR is very convienent to folks from Rockland and Orange Counties, right down the Parkway. Also when the Seacucus transfer opens it will allow folks from the Port Jervis and Spring Valley lines to connect to EWR, making the trip to EWR even shorter.
And I have my reservations about AA building up JFK, my opinion is I would be very suprised if they had more than 75 flights.
They only have 1 flight to Chicago, and DFW their biggest hubs and the busiest business routes from NY.
When you say NY'ers prefer JFK, you are obviously not including business travelers. Of the largest business communities with service from NY JFK offers the least, DFW, Chicago only have 1 flight each! And they're AA's biggest hubs, business travelers vote with their feet and EWR and LGA are the prefered airports.
EWR gets about 55% -60% of their business from business travelers, LGA gets about 65%, JFK gets about 25% business travelers. Which is why there are almost no flights to Chicago but lots of flights to Florida.
