Over the years, public transit has evolved to transport millions of passengers to and from the Big Apple’s three major metropolitan airports – JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark Liberty. One example was the iconic JFK Express, which offered limited express service of the New York City subway between Midtown Manhattan and John F. Kennedy International Airport, and was advertised with the catchy phrase, “Take the Train to the Plane.” 

Join Visitor Experience Facilitator Niko Goutakolis for a digital discussion to explore early aviation innovations, the construction of various public transit routes between NYC and its airports, and future projects that are on the horizon.  


Please Note: This discussion will take place online. Upon registration, all participants will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions on how to participate. We encourage you to download the Zoom app in advance for the best user experience.
