Other than LGA, what other airports are there that have a traffic volume of similar size and use intersecting runways in the way LGA does? There is nothing like the feeling you get as you roll down RWY 31 while watching an inbound flight to RWY 22 clearing the approach lights on it's way in. The ATC crew must take ballet lessons for the work they do.

ORD will generally use 27R and 22R for arrivals. 22R will LAHSO (Land and short of) 27R. I'm not sure if they use either for departures though, they might just use the south side of the airport for departures (27L, 22L)

Charlotte-Douglas (CLT) has intersecting runways. When runway 18L and 18R are in use for example, they use runway 23 which interesects runway 18L. The will do takeoffs on runway 18L and do landings on 23 while runway 18R does both takeoffs and landings. Very good system that have. Any more?

ARN had, until recently, ops on both 01/19 and 08/26 simultaneously. They don't quite meet, but the 01 and 26 points are pretty close to one another, so for ATC purposes I believe they are intersecting.
In the morning, it would most often be departures on 08 and arrivals on 01. Since 08 starts slightly east of 01, no problems there. However, in the evening, it would frequently be arrivals on 26 and departures on 19, which of course could slow things down since arrivals need space to go around. To further complicate things, heavies sometimes asked for 01/19 since it is longer.
Since 2003, there are three runways: 01L/19R, 01R/19L and 08/26 so this problem has been solved. Also the new runway is better for the NIMBYs.
this pic shows the layout 01L/19R runs on the left of the pic, 18/26 across the pic, 01R/19L is barely visible on the right (only the end).

MIA's runway 12/30 and 9R/27L (soon to be just 9/27) intersect at the end of each of the runways. I doubt that there is any chance of collision because 9R/27L is +/-13,000 feet but the controllers are still somewhat cautious...

PHL does this as well...takeoffs on 27L, landings on 27R, and landings on 17 or 35 (which intersects (9L/27R)for commuter and small mainline aircraft (717 and 732 are the largest Ive seen use 17/35 for arrivals)

Lately at PHL, 737's and A32X's have been landing regularly on 35 (even with calm winds). It seems like a lot of plane for a 5600' strip, but I guess it avoids 27L arrivals. Runway 35 intersects 27R (mainly arrivals) but not 27L (departures). They had been shifting some landings over to the left side, but not so much anymore. No one wants to taxi that long back from the east end of 27L, nor do departures want to wait for the landings.
