For NYC Conference – New York City has two major airports: JFK and LaGuardia. Public transportation is available from both via train, Shuttle, Lyft, and cab.
The train from JFK is rather straightforward and costs about $7.50. I would encourage you not to be fearful about taking this option if budget is a concern. There are people at the airport who can direct you.Here is a link to the NYC Subway Map: http://web.mta.info/nyct/maps/subwaymap.pdf
