LGA is a domestic and an international airport. They have a few destinations that are international. YYZ, CUN, BDA are some that come off the top of my head. I dont think there are plans to lengthen the runway because that would mean a lot of headaches for planners and the public would reject in heart beat.

If you're interested in feasible variants, the report "Upgrading to World Class, the future of the New York Region's Airports" has a very detailed comparison of many variants and includes a wealth of data. Among others, the number of take-offs and landings possible with the different variants, the estimated cost of construction, the cost of building a brand new airport, the rail alternative, the effects of air traffic control improvements (NextGen), subway access, etcetera.

Quite a good read. It's from 2011 by a group called the Regional Plan Assocation.

I think Terminal 8 of the John F. Kennedy International Airport looks unfinished. They built it on the former site of Terminal 8, but the former site of Terminal 9 remains empty. The new Terminal 8 is supposed to occupy the site of both former terminals 8 and 9. Any reason for the new Terminal 8 being/looking only half-finished, like the late-2000s-decade recession, a funding shortage, etc.?

I thought I read somewhere that they reduced the size in part of because of the decline in air travel after 9/11, and maybe an increase in fuel costs.

Actually, it was built on the former site of Terminal 9, with AA flights using Terminal 8 until it was completed. T8 was then demolished for airside operations. Pity that the giant stained-glass window wasn't preserved, since the airline didn't think it had enough historical value to warrant the cost of saving it. I think some pieces of the stained glass were melted down into jewelry for AA employees, though.

Bump...

For JFK you can go to the nearby Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. For Teterboro & Newark you use the various trails and boardwalks in The Meadowlands for Plane spotting. You could also pay a River guide from the RiverKeeper who might spend a few hrs at Port Newark for you to Planespot EWR. I'm not sure about LGA...

Due to recent security flair ups I will be delaying my upcoming Newark Airport Overview along with LGA to at least January or February.
