Vice President Joe Biden announced that the New York state would explore new upgrades to improve New York Airports and Long Island Republic Airports. The state will open a design competition in order to bring in potential ideas on how to improve the airports. The objective is to solve main problems such as imperfection of public transportation system, amenities for leisure, flow of business travelers and overcrowding stations.
Ideas have been flown around and one of them is about potentially creating a railroad system beginning at Long Island and stopping at LaGuardia Airport. Ferries will also gain access to JFK and LaGuardia. The city realized that in order to maintain the cities competiveness, they must modernize the Airports.
