What is the easiest way for a new private pilot to visit Manhattan?

As a goal, I would like to:

• Limit the difficulty of the class B airspace by staying at uncrowded areas
• Minimize the time it takes to get into the city

• KLDJ in Linden, NJ. It's a 5m cab ride to the train station into the city. Uncontrolled field, tons of news helicopters based here. It's pretty cheap (around $20/night if I recall) and fairly convenient, but the uncontrolled field is under an 800' Class B shelf at Newark and could be stressful. Expect very bare bones facilities - you can get fuel, but there's no terminal building to speak of. • KTEB in Teterboro, NJ is the GA airport for most jets that come into the city. It's the closest airport to midtown, and you'll pay a very pretty penny here, tie-downs are at least \$50/night, and fuel will be around \$9/gallon. This is a hectic option, but it has a tower and is close to the city, so for a quick overnight stop without fuel it may be the best option. Expect to be the only piston on the ramp. • KFRG in Farmingdale, NY (Long Island). Very busy GA airport abuzz with training. Pretty cheap (~$15/night tiedowns), but did I mention that it's busy? You may burn up 1h of hobbes time on the ground waiting to take off if you depart during peak times. You can catch a cab to LIRR which will get you into the city.
