They generally fly out of Newark.

otherwise, if you can get to Manhattan, you can take a private bus company to JFK for a little more than $20.
An hour? Don't make me laugh. More like 2-3 hours.

The best way by transit would be to take one of those direct buses into Manhattan (they have NYC Airporter and other companies like that), and then take the X1 express bus down to Great Kills. It's much easier than dealing with the ferry.
