Cool things to do near JFK Airport

JFK Airport.

Spending a short layover lounging around the airport for several hours before the next flight often feels boring and tedious, but venturing outside is a gamble. Luckily, many of the major international transfer hubs, like New York’s JFK Airport, are within arm’s reach of interesting ways to pass time. While flyers with shorter turnarounds may have to forgo a quick pop into Manhattan – an hour one-way – there’s plenty to do around the Long Islandborough of Queens where the airport is located. Grab a map, hop a bus or the JFK AirTrain and see what Greater New York is all about.
