Newark Guide

What are the best places to stay in New York?

Greenwich Village

Consider staying in Greenwich Village after booking tickets to Newark if you want to experience an artistic neighbourhood in central Manhattan. The Village has long been home to one of NYC’s best cultural scenes, with art galleries, live music venues, comedy clubs, and a community of people chasing after that New York dream. There’s an incredible selection of restaurants, cafes, bars, and boutique shops around Greenwich Village. Some places to visit in Greenwich Village include Washington Square Park, the Stonewall Inn historic pub, and the famous Comedy Cellar.

Upper West Side

Do you want to stay in Manhattan but would like to avoid the busyness of Midtown? Have a look at accommodation on the Upper West Side when you book cheap flights to Newark. The UWS is tucked between Central Park and the Hudson River and is home to some of the best examples of pre-war architecture in NYC. The neighbourhood is well-connected by public transport and borders the bustling Hell’s Kitchen, but it has a quieter atmosphere than many other areas of Manhattan. There are plenty of things to do around the Upper West Side, including Lincoln Center and the American Museum of Natural History.

Brooklyn Heights

Explore NYC’s alternative side by staying in Brooklyn in between return flights to Newark. Brooklyn Heights is one of the borough’s most popular neighbourhoods thanks to its great shopping scene, cool cafes, scenic cobblestone streets, and views of the Manhattan skyline. Brooklyn Heights is perfect for visitors holidaying on flights to Newark who want to enjoy everything the city centre has to offer, but away from Manhattan’s tourist-heavy neighbourhoods. Top things to do in Brooklyn Heights include the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, view of the Manhattan Bridge from Washington Street, and the famous Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.


When is the best time to book flights to Newark?

There’s no such thing as a bad time to book airfare to Newark! New York City is a year-round destination with something unique to offer in each season.

Summer is the most popular season to visit NYC on return flights to Newark. There’s an endless list of things to do, including concerts in Central Park and open-air markets. Temperatures reach about 29°C with high humidity, but the beaches of Coney Island and Long Island are only a train ride away. The high volume of summer tourists means many hotels increase their rates. Get the best price by booking early for when you’ll be travelling on summer flights to Newark.

For the most part, winter is low season in New York. However, that doesn't include the holidays. December is the busiest month to book tickets to Newark. People travel from all over to see New York’s Christmas decorations and celebrate New Year’s in Times Square. The rest of winter is fairly quiet – by NYC standards. Chilly temperatures of about 5°C during the day make winter a good time for museum-hopping. You might also benefit from lower hotel rates by booking cheap flights to Newark in January, February, or March.

Autumn and spring are New York’s shoulder seasons. Both are great times to book airfare to Newark to avoid the heat and crowds of summer and the winter chill. Temperatures average between 15° to 21°C during both autumn and spring. Take time to explore Central Park if you book return flights to Newark in either of these seasons; the autumn foliage and spring blooms are gorgeous. 


What is the best way to get around New York?

New York is home to North America’s largest public transport network, so you’ll have no trouble getting around while holidaying on cheap flights to Newark. Catch the Express Bus from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to the city. The bus stops at Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, and Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.

The subway is the best way to get around while visiting New York on flights to Newark. There are 36 lines across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. You can get just about anywhere in the city by subway.

The PATH train is another option to keep in mind, particularly if you’ll be staying on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River when you book airfare to Newark. It connects NYC and NJ across 13 stations. Major stops include Hoboken, Jersey City, the World Trade Center, and 33rd Street.

New York boasts the largest bus system in the US with 325 routes across the five boroughs. Most Manhattan subway lines travel north to south, so buses come in handy when you want to go across town.
Taxis, Uber, and Lyft are also widely available across the Greater New York area. All three are available to catch from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
