Timewise- how bad?

It's bad, but not LA bad. To get to midtown, 45 minutes probably

Depends on your destination in the city, it can take a long time to go cross-town in midtown for example. It will take around or more than an hour from LGA to PwC's office on 300 Madison.

You can greatly speed up your time to 300 by having your cab drop you at Long Island city- Vernon Jackson station on the 7 and take that one stop to grand central and 300 is a block away

Traffic in/out of LGA has been a nightmare with the construction. Very long cab lines and plenty of reports of people abandoning their cabs on the highway and walking the final 1/2 mile. If you have the option, might suggest you reroute to JFK or EWR until the disaster that is LGA is improved

FML. I don't have any way to reroute. It's going to cost more than the flight I booked and this is personal travel. Ughhhhh

What other train options are nearby? Is the E close somewhere?
