JFK in the early afternoon on a Monday to Madison Av @ 45th

Hi

My family and I will be visiting NYC for the first time next month and I'm looking for the easiest and cheapest way of getting from JFK in the early afternoon on a Monday to Madison Av @ 45th St, any help would be much appreciated.

If anyone knows if the city passes are good value for money this info would be much appreciated too.

Only three weeks before we jet in and we are all excited and can't wait.

See you soon.

Airtrain / Subway options here: http://goo.gl/maps/T94nL ($5/person Airtrain and then $2.50/person subway or purchase and use an unlimited subway Metrocard +$1fee/ per new card) Depending on the length of your visit an unlimited weekly card is a good value if you ride 13 or more times: http://www.mta.info/metrocard/compare.htm (Children under 44 inches ride free when accompanying an adult.)

Depending on the size of your group, how tired you are and how much luggage you have, a taxi (which can hold 4 or 5) from JFK to anywhere in Manhattan is a fixed rate that comes to about $70 including tolls and tip. www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/faq/faq_pass.shtml

The value of passes depends on what you want to see, total up the separate admission costs to see if it is a good value for you.

The JFK AirTrain is the way to go. It is the fastest and the best value.
