For ClearAspect's proposal draw use a ruler and draw a straight line from Rockaway Blvd station on the A line going north to between Woodhaven Blvd and 104th St stations.
Now draw a straight line between the mid-point of Woodhaven Blvd and 104th St, stations and 63rd Dr station. At 63rd Dr station there would be a connection to the already existing belle mouths to the Queens Blvd southern locals and either a new set of tracks that would either bypass or underpin with a new pedestrian transfer station the existing 63rd Dr station on it's way up Junction Blvd.
Next draw a straight line between 63rd Dr station and Junction Blvd Station.
Finally draw a straight line between Junction Blvd station and the Airport symbol at LGA.
North of 63rd drive under this proposal would require new subway construction north of 63rd Dr.
My proposal would only tie into the southern belle mouths once reaching Queens Blvd.
From Metropolitan Ave station draw a straight to 74th Roosevelt Ave. From 74th Roosevelt Ave draw a straight line between 74th Roosevelt station and the number 8 in 82nd St Jackson Heights.
From the number 8 in 82nd St Jackson heights draw a straight line to the airport symbol at LGA.
From LGA draw a straight line to Mets Willets Point and from Mets Willets Point draw a straight line to Flushing Main St.
It's not exact, but neither is the subway map, this will give you a rough idea of how the subway map could look in the future. If you want exact placement use the Queens bus map.
