Maybe not the best thread to inquire about this, but....
I'm going to NYC this June (then on to DC via Acela) and was wondering if La Guardia is as bad as people say it is (for delays). I'm essentially wondering if I'd be better off with JFK - even with the 30-45 minute commute.

I guess Newark would be optimal but it's a little more expensive (and I kinda want to see JFK in person - as nerdy and unpractical as that sounds).

I prefer the design of the new antenna to the old one - it looks functional. Reminds me of the Tokyo Sky Tree.

What's quite interesting is that the only people complaining about the lack of radome are the people that knew radome was going to be put on initially. 98% of the population isn't complaining because 1) they didn't know about the radome to begin with, and 2) the antenna doesn't look that bad to begin with.

i've only flown out of LGA once but from what i hear from the tower guys, it looks like delays happen more often for the departing planes (it could be a case by case basis but that's kinda what i understand)...

unfortunately, Van Wyck Expwy (I-678) is a slow-go almost everyday so the commute to Manhattan will definitely be longer from JFK as compared to from LGA...

you might probably want to go to the NYC Airports thread out in the Aviation section..

Honey? Do you think this tapering makes my ring look big? Huh? HUH?!

If they keep at the exact same pace, minus a few days of weather delay, lets look at the very last few days of May.

The completion of the Cladding, to me and in some ways, is more significant than the completion of the mast. The tower will soon look complete, regardless of what's happening with the mast.

Do you have a Spire on your car? No. Do you have an antenna on your car? Yes. What's the antenna used for?

Spire, antenna, height, radome. It's such odd banter.

New Yorker's don't care about ANY of it. Every day over the past decade, that massive "hole" in the NYC skyline has been a constant reminder of pure evil.

Now, finally, the skyline has been restored and everyone in the NYC area will see that beacon each night and smile. Plain and simple.

It will be nice to look towards the southern tip of Manhattan after all these years and finally smile. Mission accomplished!

That's a good point. I was just unsure whether the ride would be very scenic or not...
