Now if only the entire system could look more like that, or the DC Metro

Actually building it northeastward into the Bronx seems pretty interesting to, I might add that.
125th definitely needs a crosstown line, the link to MNR is a great idea. I'd take it a step further and run the 125th crosstown line across the Randalls/East River and link it up to the Q/N so you can transfer to LGA.

I'd also extend the L train to 10th Ave/Highline, and then run the 7 down from 34th to link to the L, and add that stop on 10th Ave that the city pulled the plug on.

That is genius! I took a stab at adding it and updating the map, take a look!:

Have the Green Line going through more of Bed-Stuy, then it'll be perfect

I'd connect the Dyre Avenue Line into the T somewhere around 178th St.

I'd also extend the 6 out to Bay Plaza Mall.

Finally, I'd have the T joining the Concourse line from the East, so that they can run through and loop around back to Manhattan.

Those are my three biggest beefs.

You can take the Newark AirTrain from the airport terminal to the NJ Transit station, then the NJ Transit train to NY Penn Station, then a Queens-bound NYC subway "E" train to Sutphin Boulevard or Rockaway-bound "A" train to Howard Beach, then JFK Air Train to the JFK terminal. The NJ Transit train from Newark Liberty International Airport Station to New York's Penn Station runs at random times throughout the day; the last one leaves at 2:07am and is scheduled to arrive at NY Penn Station at 2:46am; after that there isn't a train until 4:48am (6:04am on weekends and holidays).

A more expensive option if you want to do this by rail is to avoid the subway and simply change trains at NY Penn Station - from NJ Transit to Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). Then take LIRR train to Jamaica and transfer to JFK Air Train.

A cheaper option if you want to do this by rail is to take NJ Transit train to Newark Penn Station, then change to PATH train (cross-platform transfer) and take that to World Trade Center, then board Rockaway-bound NYC subway "A" train and take that to Howard Beach, where you will switch to the JFK Air Train.

This information will be very useful. Thank you very much.

Well you will definitely not be able to travel between EWR and JFK all on NYCsubway let alone a one seat ride.

However there are several quite viable and decently fast alternatives:

What I'd consider easiest and which is infact the cheapest option is to take the AirTrain EWR to the EWR train station and then take an NJT (New Jersey Transit) or Amtrak train all the way into New York Penn Station.
All you have to do there is go down to the Subway station "34th St-Penn Station" and board either the blue (A) toward Howard Beach-JFK or the blue (E) toward Sutphin Blvd - Archer Ave - JFK. From both these stations you will be able to board the AirTrain JFK directly to the terminal. Also, the (A) and (E) run all the time.

Another potential option would be to start over the same way but then change into a PATH train at Newark Penn Station and ride the red NWK-WTC line until its terminus, World Trade Center. There you'd be able to change into either the (A) or (J) train at nearby Fulton Center or the (E) at the NYC subway World Trade Center station. However, you'd need to pay an extra price to transfer between PATH and the subway so this doesn't really make sense.

Hope I was able to help you!

I flew from JFK many times and its hell alot easier to use LIRR than Subway. Less stops and faster. And since Amtrak arrival to Penn station, it was a breeze connection.

The MTA has released a simulated test-drive of Second Avenue Subway, which is scheduled to open in 20_6.

Pretty neat. It really shows just how much faster the subway is when compared to other modes of transportation in the city.
