LaGuardia is about 20 minutes away; JFK and Newark are about an hour away.

I live on the upper west side in the 90's. The meter never reads more than $18 to or from LGA. The toll is $3.50 and the tip is extra. It will be about the same amount to the 60's on the east side.

Can't add much, other than that the 100% clear choice, if you have one, is LaGuardia. Very quick trip to UES.

LGA - close to $25 with Tip and toll (3.50)
JFK - rate is fixed at $35.With tip and toll (3.50) it will cost at least $42 with a 10% tip.
EWR - somewhere between $45 and $50. FAre is based on zones. It is $34 to midtown west so it will be more to the upper east side. The toll is $6

Thanks for your help everyone. Looks like LGA wins handsdown! Wish there was a non stop from SEA to LGA though.

Frankly I would opt for a non stop to Jfk if available. It will cost about $20 more to get to the city and the trip will take about 30 minutes more but I think it is worth the conveniece of not having to change planes
