INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL INFO
For international travelers, the easiest way to get to New Brunswick is by flying into Newark International Airport. It’s about 45 min train ride away and easily navigable. The second option is to fly into JFK. The latter involves more hassle, including but not limited to several train changes (up to 3 trains) and could take a couple hours to get to New Brunswick. The third alternative, i.e flying into LaGuardia is NOT recommended. To put it bluntly,
DO NOT FLY INTO LAGUARDIA AIRPORT!
