Re: ''Transit advocates urge Hochul to scrap LaGuardia AirTrain''

That is a battle that Amtrak would lose, not only in judicial court, but also the court of public opinion.

Just extend the Astoria El to the Airport from Ditmars & be done with it. Thats the cheapest & most practical was to serve the Airport.

Why condemn more private property than you need and unnecessarily blight a thriving residential thoroughfare with a noisy elevated line when you can build an AirTrain-style viaduct along the parkway that parallels that street just a block south?

The line down GCP would also require less curvature since it's pretty much a straight shot to LGA from the RFK Bridge, and there's no way that a viaduct down the parkway median would be more expensive than a traditional el down Ditmars.
