Transportation from JFK to Waldorf Astoria??

What is the best way to get from JFK airport to the Waldorf, taxi or subway?? I guess I'm looking for easy, but not terribly expensive. How much would a cab cost? If it's over $50, I suppose the subway would be better. Is it easy to take the subway from one to the other ?

Thanks. Is the subway easy or am I better off paying for the taxi?

It's just my husband and me and our carry on bags. We pack lite.

in that case then

subway will work

you'll need to transfer from J or Z to 6

another choice is to take the Airport Express bus direct to Grand Central Terminal then walk 8 blocks north to the Waldorf

another choice without transfer of subway lines

is take the E train to 53rd and Lexington and then you would walk west to Park Avenue and south to the Waldorf
