It very much depends where you want to be for the drop. Supernova hosts a party which is technically in Times Square, just high up, and ages 18+ may attend, or 16+ with an adult. The Times Square Family Pass lets a family of any ages, although drinks will differ depending on age. Also you'd need to be with your family, presumably. The Wikihow article also ...

For just watching the ball drop and the festivities taking place in Times Square from within Times Square there is no age minimum. You just show up and go through all the police barricades to the "pen" where they put you. You cannot leave and return to the same place, if you leave you have to go to the latest "pen" the police set up. It's quite chaotic ...

The Northeast Corridor railroad connects Penn Station and Newark Airport, and the train trip is less than a half hour. Options include Amtrak and New Jersey Transit. NJT has more trains and is cheaper, while Amtrak has fewer stops (actually, looking at the map that might not be true -- it appears that the NJT train doesn't stop until Newark). In either case ...

If those times are on weekdays, traffic will be very bad. I would recommend the train, connecting to a NJ Transit train to Manhattan. The reverse when you leave.

Like the other answers here say, there's really no age limit for people to be out on the street, and as the night wears on on it gets so hectic and full of people that Times Square, the busiest, most crowded block in NYC becomes literally un-walkable! So there's no age requirement for just "standing on Times Square" but I wouldn't be surprised if ...

Let me expand on the "train transfer". It's pretty easy. I would say this is the best way to go, all things considered, especially because your hotel is right by Penn Station and so you don't have to navigate the NYC subway. Buses or airport shuttles might be cheaper but are subject to traffic; taxis cost quite a bit more. AirTrain is just an airport ...

Given LaGuardia's location you will have to use Ground Transportation irrespective of where you're coming from at some point of your journey. The simplest way to get from LaGuardia to Penn Station would be to use the NYC Airporter or a cab. Price will vary but would be as close to a door-to-door as you can get. Otherwise if you feel like using public ...

When leaving JFK, get the free Airtrain shuttle to the Lefferts Blvd station stop then get off and get the Q10 bus to Ozone Park Lefferts Blvd subway station where you can get the A train to the city. Transfers are free between bus and subway when you use a metro card. Do the reverse to get to the airport.
