Long time no see! I didn't know if there was ever a third runway at La Guardia. I'm assuming that was a taxiway. There's isn't a whole lot of room to fit another runway with the space they have, nor to to build one!

I doubt the taxiway would be mistaken for a runway.. they're way too close.. if someone did mistake them, then they should be fired, because that's about the least common sense I've seen...
Frankly, I do not see how LGA can afford another runway. Sure it can be done, but it would cost way too much, and the amount of traffic around the airport all scattered would be too much to handle IMO (deps. and arrivals on 2 parallel RWYS., I dunno). It would cost the city way too much money too to fill in the little bit of water remaining with dirt, solidify it etc...
