Could Union Square Be Your Next Airport?


The Shuttle System

La Guardia, JFK, and Newark would all be linked by the high-speed shuttle circuit (which, since it’d be built from scratch, could be easily equipped with wireless, cable TV, and other forms of information-age distractions). Passengers and their luggage would be screened before entering each secure hub. Having security checkpoints throughout the system would help reduce X-ray-machine bottlenecks. Most important: no more $30-plus cab rides, ever.
