What to do in New York - John Fitzgerald Kennedy International Airport

The John Fitzgerald Kennedy International Airport serves New York and lies nineteen kilometers away of Manhattan city-island, the heart of the New York. It is hard to discuss New York from a touristic standpoint. After all, this is the city that never sleeps. In addition, it never tires! The quality and quantity of its sights is as extended as not to leave a single empty minute in your journey. If you are into art, we suggest Soho Quarter with its trendy art galleries; and some mega-museums such as MoMa (Museum of Modern Art) and Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art). Perhaps you prefer to take a walk in Central Park or on the High Line, an outstanding urban park built on an elevated section of a disused Railroad spur with a view on skyscrapers. If you are lured by New York’s shopping aura, the fifth avenue is your cup of tea. While a rental car is especially comfortable for night movements, it can also be a good way to extend your area of interest beyond Manhattan. The city has very interesting and famous boroughs as well, such as Brooklyn - nowadays perhaps New York’s coolest quarter, because of the number of young artists residing here. Cross the magnificent Brooklyn Bridge and rest in the Brooklyn Bridge Park, situated right below the bridge and in front of Brooklyn Heights. The old piers have been turned into parks with hills and benches from which you can have a wonderful view of South Manhattan. Finally, go to the Bronx to see a baseball match of the amazing New York Yankees.

Driving near New York - John Fitzgerald Kennedy International Airport

You do not need to channel your time on New York only. By hiring a car at the JFK Airport you can let your fantasy run wild and choose where to go to. If it is summertime, go to the Hamptons. In these humble villas in Long Island’s eastern end, rich and well-to-do people spend their weekends. Otherwise, a small trip takes you to Washington where you can see the famous White House; or in Philadelphia, which is even closer and hosts the Amish community with its particular lifestyle. Boston is also close-by. There you can see the fascinating European quarters and the famous Cambridge.
