New York Gov. Cuomo Unveils Plan for Rail Link to LaGuardia Airport
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has unveiled plans for creating a rail link to New York City’s LaGuardia Airport, according to press reports. The plan calls for an elevated AirTrain that would connect the airport with the Willets Point station in Queens, which sits opposite Citi Field ballpark and serves the Long Island Rail Road commuter rail and the city’s No. 7 subway line. The project is expected to cost approximately $450 million and should be completed within five years. The State Legislature must sign off on the project before the plan can move ahead.
