    Airport Transportation

    There are three area airports—Liberty Newark International, LaGuardia, and JFK International. Be sure to allow enough travel time when heading to a NYC-area airport; traffic in New York is always heavy. In rain, snow, or rush hour and during VIP visits to the city, traffic gets very tied up. A good rule of thumb is to depart Manhattan two hours before your flight departs.

    Train Transportation

    Train transportation between Syracuse and New York is provided by Amtrak. Call 800.872.7245 for schedules. The Fisher Center is three blocks from Penn Station, where Amtrak is located.
