Will be arriving at JFK on a Saturday at lunchtime mid December with 2 large suitcases. Staying at Hotel Mela on 120 West 44th Street. From research understand we would have 2 options for subway:-
1. Air Train from JFK to Jamaica Stn then E train to Grand Central?
2. Air Train from JFK to Jamaica Stn then LIRR to Penn Station?
If I'm wrong about subway options feel free to correct me.
Also considering more expensive taxi option, about $60 including tips? Just wondering what traffic would like on a Saturday at lunch time to get into Manhattan?
