  • Well, Newark ain't exactly a spa getaway.

    Of the 3 NYC airports, I'd rank them:

    1. Newark
    2. JFK
    3. Laguardia

    But that's not exactly a ringing endorsement for Newark. Personally I used it the most out of convenience because I live 20 minutes away. However, due to available flights and fares, I have used the other two a bunch as well.

    The best part about an airport? Getting the hell out of it.

    "No...I didn't."
    "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

        Quoted for truth.

        Yea, it's a crapshoot. They all suck lol.

        That being said I've been to a LOT of big airports, and there are many others that aren't nearly as miserable as the NY/NJ ones.

        • When my dad first moved to coastal NC, he bought my brothers and I tickets to visit him one summer, and we left out of LaGuardia and INTO a tiny airport in Wilmington on this 2-by-1-row United Airlines plane.
          We landed and the airport in Wilm.....well, I was like "wait...is this a retirement home?!"....
          Place has like carpeted floors, nice artwork in the halls, rocking chairs.....it was weird, man...

                I'd say JFK is the biggest dump of them all, currently.

                I fly out of LaGuardia most often, just because of the proximity. I feel like I get stuck in traffic any time I need to drive through Queens to get to JFK.
                LGA is the biggest dump and it's not close.

                But not just out of the NY metro airports, out of all airports ever in history

                    Of course.

                    However I will say that Singapore airport is friggin beautiful. Nicer than some hotels I've been in.

                      I remember when I was young my family was going to Florida or something and we're walking by the cafeteria area and I see a bunch of sparrows on a table eating someones left overs.
                      I remember thinking " how the hell did all those birds get in here..."

                        I remember smoking a cigarette in Hartsfield in ATL, and thinking, "man, even this smoke room is nicer than the New York airports...."
