Another weekend and another opportunity to escape the city for a few hours. If you don’t have a car (which is most of us) Metro North makes these trips very accessible.

Editor’s Note: This article is part of our series “Escape from New York.” Series Overview: Flight times are within 2 hours and 30 minutes of New York City. Spend 48 hours immersing yourself in the culture and feel of the destination city. Flights can depart at 6am on Saturday […]
Flight times from JFK to Buffalo Niagara International Airport will show up as an hour and a half but in reality you are in the air for around fifty minutes.

Full Access NYC, why are you referencing Western New York in your title? First, I probably shouldn’t be questioning myself to set up some type of engaging response.
