Times Square Area to JFK Airport

Jump to last reply

What is the best route / way to get from the Times Square area to JFK airport? We are flying out of JFK on an 11:15am flight this coming Friday (Sept 10th). Our hotel is the Wyndham Garden Hotel - Times Square South.

I did a Google directions search and it said it would take the following times based on these two routes:

Route 1: I-495 E and I-678 S
17.2 mi - 26 mins no traffic
1 hour 50 mins in traffic

Route 2: Grand Central Pkwy E
22.5 mi - 36 mins no traffice
1 hour 30 mins in traffic

Those are huge differences with traffic! This is an international flight to Africa so we obviously want to be there 2 hours early. Should we just have our hotel call us a taxi? What time should we plan on leaving from the hotel? I was thinking 7:30am but is that even early enough?

Lastly, any clue on how much a cab ride will cost to JFK from here? I'm guessing pretty expensive especially if it takes 1 hour and 50 minutes!!!

Thanks for any insight!
