I´m travelling to New York City with a friend soon. This is our first trip to NYC, so these are beginner´s questions. Our hotel is called Astor on the Park and it´s located at the upper end of Central.
I tried to check public transport option from JFK, but I´m a bit confused.
Is it possible to take the Air Train to Howard Beach and then get on the subway line A or C to go directly to Cathedral Parkway station? (A would be better, because the trains don´t stop at every station, correct?)
The trip planner on MTA website tells me I should go via Jamaica. This route involve more interchanges - not very convenient with luggage.
