JFK to ASE14
Once you land, follow the Yellow signs towards Baggage Claim and get your checked bag. Then, head to the far right (as you enter the baggage claim area) and follow the Green signs up the escalators towards AirTrain. You’ll go up 2 sets of escalators, then a long walk.
In theory, exit the Southwest Corner then head away from Central Park (big empty space in the sky) down 7th and you’ll be at the hotel. But hey, this is NY, right?
Instead, head up W 53rd St. to Broadway and see the Late Show w/ David Letterman at Broadway and W 53rd. Then make a left on Broadway and wheel your luggage into Times Square. When you get to W 46th you’ll be at the New York Marriott Marquis on your right.
Don’t forget to look for a Walgreens or Duane Reade so you can pick up essentials after you check in.
Of course, if you want the very easy (but pricier) version, get Uber. If you’re not yet using Uber, you can get $30 in free fare with this promo code. UberX, which is a plain car, will cost you $60 for JFK to Times Square, so you can get 50% off.
