Situated in the borough of Queens on Long Island, 12 miles southeast of Lower Manhattan, JFK International Airport is New York’s busiest aviation hub, catering to nearly 60 million passengers annually. Travelling to the airport from Manhattan takes around an hour in normal traffic, and you can drive between the two via either the Midtown Tunnel, Triborough Bridge or Williamsburg, Manhattan, or Brooklyn Bridges. The airport’s six terminals are quite spread out, so it’s advised to to leave yourself extra time to reach the right terminal for your flight.
There are a large number of on-airport and off-site options for long term parking at JFK. While on-airport parking is certainly the most convenient, it’s also the most expensive. If you don’t mind using a shuttle service to reach your terminal after parking up, we’d recommend one of the numerous off-site parking lots that are within quick reach of the airport. To help find the best one for you, we’ve picked out three off-site lots offering long term parking along with easy access to JFK Airport.
