People often ask us what New York luggage storage options are there for a day. In this day in age, storing your luggage in New York certainly presents a challenge; the old anonymous storage lockers in train stations and airports are things of the past.

Storage is safe and secure with Bag Helper and for piece of mind, for each bag, they provide pick proof seals with a unique ID that cannot be reattached once broken.
JFK Airport Baggage Storage: If you have a long layover arriving to and departing JFK airport, you can store your luggage for a small fee. As of January 2014, there is one baggage storage facility in Terminal 1. It is open from 7 am until 11 pm. Bags cost between $4-$16 per piece of baggage per day. Be sure to call (718) 751-2947 to confirm pricing and availability. Check with your airline about baggage storage at the airport. Many carrier websites point to 24 hour baggage storage in Terminal 4, but nothing is mentioned on the official Port Authority website. For Newark Airport, you must check with your carrier. There is no luggage storage for LaGuardia Airport, though it couldn’t hurt to ask your airline to make sure.
