Looking at some old aerial photos from the 40s, this ROW from Rego Park to Howard Beach was four tracks wide.

LIRR and MTA are unlikely to have given up their precious ROW in the past, so why can't this ROW be rebuilt for 4 tracks again?

Two tracks for LIRR from Aqueduct Casino and JFK /Howard Beach to Rego Park connection (using half of the reactivated ROW) and express to Manhattan;

Two tracks for MTA to run Rockaway service (A) trains as is already being done, and another route from Rockaway to the 63 Dr - Rego Park bellmouths (using the other half of reactivated ROW) to connect with Queens Blvd.
