I've never been to the jfk airport but i will be flying out of there on a monday night in January. I'm coming from the Philadelphia area. Is it a difficult drive? Are there lots of signs? Google maps made it seem like it's mostly highway (I-95 to Interstate 278 to the belt parkway to Nassau expressway). any tips are appreciated. someone on yahoo answers suggested an alternative route: Outerbridge Crossing (Route 440) across Staten Island, the Verazzanno Bridge, then the Belt Parkway .
