BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO OVERHAUL JFK AIRPORT – WHAT THE FUCK FOR WHEN THERE ARE MORE PRESSING & URGENT ITEMS ON THE FUCKED UP NEW YORK LIST – DAMN THE BULLSHIT MACHINE IS WORKING OVERTIME

Related imageREALLY, FUCKING REALLY. Billions of dollars to overhaul JFK airport, why the fuck is the norm anymore billions of dollars. AND why does JFK need overhauled, I mean it was already overhauled and fixed up either the late 90’s or early 2000’s, but  I know I was living here in NYC when they did it. And where the hell is this money supposed to come from and when did you ever hear of a project staying within budget or below, NEVER. And what the fuck are they going to actually do. I mean getting in and out of JFK is pretty much a breeze unlike that third world airport LaGuardia.  Getting around JFK is actually pleasant. Great so we can have two fucked up airports that are nightmares to maneuver around. AND what the fuck is with this BILLIONS. Everything is billions now, even a dopey streetcar that benefits a select few has a ticket price of a billion.

And what the hell is the “complete overall” of the Jamaica LIRR/Air Train station. Wasn’t that just overhauled not that long ago too. The only damn thing it needs are much bigger and more elevators as opposed to the crappy three they already have, where one is always out of service and remove all the homeless and other Jamaica shitty elements that hangs out there. BUT if you are going to overall anything, overall the corrupt Albany government, the NYC government and of course the gangsta government of SE Queens.

FUCK, fix the goddamn roads, which resemble a third world country, update the fucking subway so it runs on time and stop making it a homeless shelter, put more police in higher crime areas, stop all the damn illegal conversions that go on all over and fix some of the fucked up subway stations, especially in areas like Jamaica. Finally do something responsible for the homeless. Overhaul all of the corrupt city agencies, especially DOB and DOT. Get rid of wasted tax payer’s money positions like the Public Advocate and the Borough Presidents. Overhaul the community board system which members get picked by the Borough President and the council members of that district. SHIT, no wonder Jamaica Community Board 12 is so fucking useless, you had brain dead Helen Marshall and obese do nothing Leroy Comrie picking who sits on the board. Now we have white lily bitch Melinda Katz and Comrie’s protege, I. Daneek Miller.  There are shitloads of items on the FIX IT list and JFK is not one of them.

One person over at Queens Crap had this to say:

What is in desperate need of an overhaul is NOT JFK, but Albany itself——and, starting with the profligate, wanton waste king himself, Mario’s son (a tired retread of sociopathic diversions that betray public trust)!

Until We the People start punching back TWICE AS HARD, then nothing will ever change. And, as far as Preet is concerned, the powers that be got to him and he chose life over nabbing the scourge at the top!

I am deeply ashamed to be a New York State resident, when there is such an entrenched, never ending loop of Albany (and City Hall) corruption, graft, greed, dishonesty, dishonor, disloyalty——and, a total dereliction of public duty that continues to suck our tax dollars into a vortex of rage and despair, and the only ones who continue to pay a soul-crushing price are the taxpayers themselves.

As always, Mario’s son and City Hall’s Wilhelm are voracious ‘CRIMES WITHOUT CRIMINALS’ in action, for whom everyone else pays the perpetual tab of all grinding corruption itself, as the ‘Delay, Deny——And, Hope That You Die’ credo is in full and open operations for 2017!

In simpler parlance: SAME CIRCUS——SAME UNFUNNY CLOWNS!

Another had this to say:

LGA and now JFK, there is more concern with tourism than with tax paying residents, what about the BQE, the Van Wyck and the cross island highway roads? What about funding to house the homeless and the working poor in the city?

This, the populist pandering offering free tuition (which Andy certainly knows won’t happen) and the recent pardon of that brinks robber adds to infinitely stupid array of dick moves by this asshole governor.

Bottom line:

THIS CITY FUCKING SUCKS. I can feel the move coming up in the near future, either that or my head explodes.

JFK airport renovation proposal unveiled by Cuomo

It’s one high-flying proposal.

Governor Andrew Cuomo Wednesday unveiled a multi-billion dollar plan to rehabilitate Kennedy Airport as well as travel connections to the facility.

The three-pronged plan, completely reimagines the airport while also attempting to address access on roads and through mass transit.

The overhaul would come at the tune of about $10 billion, with around $7 billion coming from private investment.

It was put forth by Cuomo’s Airport Master Plan Advisory Panel, which is also overseeing the redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport, as a way to accommodate projected passenger increases.

“JFK ranks 59 of the world’s top 100 airports. Now remember, JFK was literally one of the first, when it was built, it was ahead of its time! Now time has passed us by and JFK is number 59. That’s bad,” said Cuomo, who introduced the proposal at a luncheon for the nonprofit Association for a Better New York, alongside a panel of transit officials including outgoing MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast and Daniel Tishman, CEO of Tishman Construction Company and chair of the Governor’s Airport Master Plan Advisory Panel.

“Our region deserves a world class international airport fit for the demands of the 21st century,” said Tishman. “We’re calling for the end for the airport’s piecemeal development approach of the past to create a unified, interconnected and modern airport.”

About 60 million travelers pass through JFK annually. That number is expected to leap to 75 million by 2030 and 100 million by 2050.

The proposal would expand the newer terminals to meet growing passenger demands. Older terminals would be redeveloped and relocated to increase connectivity. The roads in the airport facility itself would be reworked create a less-complex circular route.

By car, Cuomo’s administration wants to widen connector ramps of the Van Wyck Expressway and Grand Central Parkway at the Kew Gardens Interchange to reduce bottlenecking. It would also add an additional lane in each direction to the Van Wyck. This would cost anywhere between $1.5 billion to $2 billion.

Cuomo said his administration was still deciding between two options to address mass transit access to the airport. One would focus solely on improving JFK AirTrain service and its links to the rest of the area’s transit network. This option would increase service frequency while also doubling the number of cars per train, from two to four. It would also bring a complete overhaul to the Jamaica transit hub to improve transferring to the AirTrain from the subway and LIRR.

“This transfer is hardly a world-class experience,” said Prendergast. “You’re traversing multiple levels and you could accurately use the word ‘schlepping’ with your luggage.”

The other option for public transit riders would be to explore the feasibility of a one-seat ride to JFK though this option was not elaborated on further.

Owen Gutfreund, associate professor of Urban Affairs and Planning Hunter College, believes that fixing the Kew Gardens Interchange would have little impact on reducing congestion.

Improving frequency and reliability of the AirTrain would be beneficial — but not as much as securing a one-seat ride to the airport from New York City, he added.

“Most of the traffic going into JFK isn’t coming from Jamaica,” he said. “Because of the bi-state nature of the Port Authority, there’s money being spent to improve access and bring that one-seat ride to Newark. We really need to do that for JFK and LaGuardia. The Port Authority must stop thinking as two states and start thinking of this as a system of three airports.”
