Taxi from airports to Manhattan
$45 flat fare (flat rate), plus bridge and tunnel tolls and gratuity; 45–60 minutes to Midtown Manhattan from JFK and LaGuardia.
Just get into the taxi queue and tell the taxi driver "midtown flat fee" and after paying the Lincoln Tunnel toll and tips it is about $70.
Works in reverse back to airports.
