Additional travel info:

John F. Kennedy Airport (airport code JFK) is the best airport to fly into.

From JFK you can:

  • Rent a car
  • Take a taxi
  • Take mass transit: AirTrain to Jamaica Station, then switch to the Long Island Railroad to the Mineola Train Station. Mineola is a stop on the Port Jefferson and Ronkonkoma lines. From the Mineola Train Station, it is a short 15 minute cab, Lyft, or Uber ride to the Long Island Marriott.

Long Island does not have very much public transportation; if you plan on exploring you will need a car.
