We are going on a 2 week trip to the UK in 09/18. Our flight leaves JFK on a Saturday night at 9 pm at night. I was thinking of flying into JFK on the Friday evening the day before and stay at a JFK hotel. Can anyone provide thoughts if it is worthwhile to go into the city for 5 or 7 hours on Saturday and still get back to JFK by 7 pm for check-in to our flight? We would love to see Times Sq If possible and just bum around for a few hours before heading back to our hotel at JFK. (NO HOTEL picked out yet) to pick up our luggage and head to JFK for our flight over the pond. Thoughts or suggestion Thanks in advance!
