Whether you're traveling the Big Apple for business or pleasure, travelers will find New York is open 24 hours a day. Although located in New Jersey, Newark International Airport (EWR) serves the New York City area as well. In fact, it's closer to Manhattan than JFK airport.
From here, you can be in Midtown, or the Wall Street area quickly and efficiently. Because this airport offers travelers the best transportation into Manhattan, you'll probably be at your meeting, or seeing the sights, quicker than if you had landed at one of the other local airports.
Located right off the New Jersey Turnpike, Newark airport has its own efficient monorail system, the AirTrain. It can connect its travelers to a rental car agency, shuttle or directly to New Jersey Transit. There's even an Amtrak station nearby with service to Washington, D.C., or Boston.
If you're staying in New Jersey, a rental car is a wise choice unless you're planning to make Manhattan your home base. New York City's subway system is one of the most extensive in the world and can take you anywhere you need to go.
A flight from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), to Newark International Airport (EWR), will take travelers about three and a half hours.
