I didn’t want to put this in Spotting because I didn’t think it fit the requirements, but if this needs to be moved please do not hesitate to do so. I am curious, for any of you New York-JFK spotters out there, what locations do you recommend to be able to spot? Photography isn’t necessarily a top priority, but I would like to be able to see the planes quite low as they are landing at JFK.
Please keep this in mind:
-It will most likely be myself and my Dad doing the spotting.
-I would like to avoid foresty areas, as I am paranoid with ticks and have heard that some of the recommended spotting locations have many bugs such as mosquitos and ticks.
-I am open to spots both on and off the airport.
For those of you familiar with the area, I have been considering a spot on Rockaway Blvd, north of Runways 22L/R. My only issue with this is that the stretch of Rockaway Blvd that is north of the airport seems to have a lack of parking available. For this spot, does anyone know if there are nearby areas to park? Or should I park somewhere else along Rockaway Blvd and possibly take the Q113 bus?
Thank you all for the recommendations!
