Newark Liberty International Airport
This airport is further away, so we recommend that you fly into JFK or LaGuardia, if possible. However, if you do arrive at Newark, travel via public transportation is possible. Take AirTrain Newark to either NJ TRANSIT or Amtrak, and get off at New York-Penn Station. (NJ TRANSIT is less expensive than Amtrak.) At Penn Station, take the LIRR to the Glen Cove stop; see “Arriving by Train” higher up on this page. If you prefer to grab a ride share like Uber or Lyft, budget $60 – $100*.
