The Port Authority uses the money from the bridge and tunnel tolls to subsidize the PATH train and the Bus Terminal, both of which operate at huge losses.
Do you have any idea why they operate at such losses? The 'bridge commander' (each bridge has two) each make over $300k per year. This doesnt include the variable 'VP's' of the bridges which the port authority will not release numbers as to how many there are or what their salaries are.

I feel like no one wants to say this, but I'm sure it is on the minds of many.
I feel like the only way to truly improve air travel in NYC is to replace JFK and LGA with an entirely new airport outside the city limits, connected to the city via transit. That is the only way IMHO that NYC can see a world class facility.
No one will say it because it doesnt need to happen. Sure we get flows to EWR/JFK/LGA on a daily basis, they are more than capable of handling the traffic the city gets and that isnt even including TEB/PHL....

Well, I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but I kind of like LGA . . .
No reason for it. LGA is a domestic port and of course people will bitch but no real reason why, it is far nicer than MANY of the airports around the world I have been to.

There are some nice terminals in the United States. DEN, DTW, SFO, have some nice terminals. There are some nice concourses out there sporadically but most countries have superior airports
I challenge you to find a nicer main terminal than DEN.... Open, airy, spacious, easy to understand/access, where?
