Re: Why NY Penn Station still sucks

The article does not mention anything about funding such a LIRR connection, only mentions the Port Authority demanded it. There was no funding for such a connection. When construction began on the Air Train to JFK, there was no other readily available funding sources other than the Airport Usage Fee which as mentioned in other threads, could not be utilized for such a connection to existing LIRR or NYCT services.

The Port Authority wanted a rail connection to JFK and figured this might be a good way to get it without paying for it. So they like others mentioned in the article, went to the trough to try to feed and get something for nothing or at least for a minimum amount.
