Define what you mean by "best" - i.e. most comfortable, fastest, least expensive, mass transit, private transit?????

Also, there have been literally hundreds of posts on these two subjects in recent months - use the seach feature to find them.

Do you mean fastest? How many bags are you schlepping? Are you travelling from Newark directly to La Guardia? There is a direct van service between the two airports costs about $ 30 pp and runs every hour on the half from Newark and takes about 60-75 min. There is train service from the Newark airport transit station to mid town (Penn Station) reached by the people mover Airlink, that costs about $14 per person ow and takes 30-45 minutes.
Also there are shuttle buses that leave from each terminal to mid town manhattan port authority terminal cost about the same and usually makes the trip in 45 minutes.
Taxis can cost $45 plus tolls to mid town.
See: http://www.panynj.gov/aviation/connframewr.htm
for how to connect between airports.

As suggested above, "best" depends on where in Manhattan, how many people/bags etc. If this is for your daughter and her boyfriend and they're staying at that Hampton Inn near Times Square, a bus to Port Authority and then a taxi from there (or a walk) is probably best. This lists all the options

http://www.panynj.gov/aviation/egtsfram.htm

From Manhattan to LGA for 2 or more, a taxi or car service is best since it's close and public transport is either very inconvenient or not that big a savings.

The best way is to hire a car service.

yes, the best way is a car service but it will cost you around $100 bucks.

Wrong. Car services to/from the NYC airports such as Dial7 and Carmel cost the same or less than a taxi.

Hitch-hiking costs nothing.

Should you purchase tickets for the train/bus ahead of time?
