Airports

There are six airports that serve the area. The two closest (under an hour by car) are smaller, so for most people that would involve a plane change. The three main New York City airports (Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK) are further. Of these three, Newark is the closest. LaGuardia and JFK are further and will have worse traffic, since they are in the eastern part of New York City. The Philadelphia airport is a 2 hour drive to the south.

The easiest way to reach East Stroudsburg University (ESU) from the airports is by rental car. If you wish to take public transportation instead, look at the sections below the airport listings.
