How to get to the hamptons
As Carol says, you have 2 options. The first is the train. You'd take the AirTrain at JFK toJamaicastation and there get a Long Island Railroad train (the Montauk line) to theHamptons. If you're staying in Sagaponack, you will want to go to Bridgehampton, not Southampton as it's closer.
But the train doesn't run very frequently, so you probably will need to take the Hampton Jitney (coach). You will need to get a taxi at the airport to the pick up spot for the bus near JFK. On the Hamjitney it says:
"Airport connection passengers should take a cab from JFK or LaGuardia to our stop inFresh Meadows,Queens, at the corner of 190th Street and the Eastbound Service Road of the L.I.E. (TakeL.I.E.toExit 25 eastbound, follow the service road to the front of the Fresh Meadows Cineplex Odeon Movie Theatre)."
You should print that info out and have it with you. Don't expect any cab driver to know where the Jitney stop is. You might even want to map it out on mapquest.com and have that with you as well.
It will take about 15-20 mins. to get there from getting into the taxi. You'd then get on the bus and the trip is about 2 hrs. from there. This will be a very long if you're coming straight from NZ. Buses leave about once an hour and the last bus of the day is at 11:50 pm.
Flying to the Hamptons
The major airports that service the area close to Long Island, NY are JFK international and LaGuardia Airport (both in Queens County),Islip/MacArthur Airport(Ronkonkoma, NY in Nassau County) and East Hampton Airport. JFK and LaGuardia are approximately 85 miles from the Hamptons.Islip/MacArthur Airportis 50 miles from the Hamptons. To get to the Hamptons from MacArthur Airport you can use theHampton Jitney ($12-25)orwww.asmlimousine.com(Fares run $90-$120). The East Hampton Airport only services private planes and small charters.
There is nothing scarier to me than a helicopter or prop plane but if youre a high roller and want to be in the Hamptons in 45 minutes from NYC chartering a plane or helicoptermight be for you.
You can expect to payabout $200 to get alimo from JFK or Laguardia to the Hamptons.Asm Limousine and Car Service (631) 703 1662 is a good bet as they are familiar with the area.if you are using the service a group of friends to the Hamptons and it ended up being very economical the company is licensed and insured. www.limousineserviceservicelongisland.com
A friend of ours who lives in Hartford, bypasses I-95 by taking theNew London, Connecticut ferry to Orient Point(1 hour 45 minutes).From Orient Point he drives to Greenport (about 6 miles) takes theNorth Ferryto Shelter Island (15 minutes). From Shelter Island he takes theSouth Ferryto Sag Harbor (5 minutes). His actual drive time is about one hour and 15 minutes. Cross Sound Ferrytakes cars, passengers and trucks from Bridgeport, Connecticut to Port Jefferson, Long Island. It will take you about one hour and 15 minutes to drive from Port Jefferson to the Hamptons. My kids love the ferry. They think we are on a mini-cruise whenever we take it.
So dont let the traffic terrorists scare you away from a beach vacation in the Hamptons. See you on the beach! bridgeahmpton limo in local service in brodgehampton bridgehampton limousine
