Transportation to and from Airports for RCMH event Can't Post

I looked online some and felt immediately confused. So I thought I'd ask for help in figuring out options for getting to and from the airports to NYC.

And, I think a couple of people have wondered if any of us were arriving and/or departing at similar times for sharing rides or transit experience.

So, to start with, my hub and I are arriving at JFK and departing at LaGuardia.

Is it unreasonable to try to take public transportation to and from either of these airports? We will probably have carry on bags and at least one, if not two full sized pieces of luggage. (and I just found a site that said: "The New York City subways and buses run to JFK for $2.00. If you have large quantities of luggage, you may find it difficult to manage this long trip."

If public transportation is too onerous a procedure to attempt, other suggestions? Is there anything I should be mindful of when using any of these options?

I am finding these sites but would love some opinions from people in the know.

I'm sure there are more but I have to start running my errands.

I'll post a reply that gives my arrival and departure times so we can maybe get some individual threads going for people looking for transit buddies.
