The New York metropolitan area has three international airports.  We recommend that, if possible, you book your flight in and out of Newark (EWR) - to avoid NYC traffic.  If you can't get a flight to Newark, try LaGuardia...JFK should be your last choice.


Please schedule your flight around the following shuttle schedule:

Tuesday, July 26

Nyack College vans will leave each of the three main airports, Newark, LaGuardia, JFK at 12:00 pm and again at 4:30 pm.


Friday, July 29

The shuttles to the airport will leave Nyack at 8:00 am and noon (travel time to each airport is approximately one hour, depending on traffic?and in New York, everything depends on traffic!).

July in New York will be hot and humid.  Business casual dress is encouraged, except for our banquet on Thursday (jacket and tie optional).
