NYC Travel Help: I need some advice about transferring between NYC airports. [+]

I live in Washington, D.C. On Jan 1, I’m flying out of Newark to Israel. I fly back into JFK on Jan. 12. (It’s not an ideal arrangement, but I’m not paying for the flight, so I can’t complain). I’m trying to figure out the best way to handle getting up there and back for the least cost/hassle.
Open-jaw flights were running in the $400+ range when I looked. I can do round trip to Newark for like 150, and take a bus from JFK to EWR on the 12th. There weren’t really any good options for doing round trip to JFK. I can get a round trip to La Guardia for 99, but then I’d have to do some kind of transfer between airports at each end of my trip, which seems like a pain in the ass. I can take a train to Newark, then get a one way ticket from JFK or LaGuardia back to D.C.
It seems like there’s a billion different not-quite-good options. I’d appreciate any advice on the best way to manage this – ease of transferring between airports, cost of different transfers, companies you’ve used, etc. Thanks.
