New York would do well to take a page out of the Washington D.C. Metro's book on how to intelligently connect major airports and the Downtown areas for the convenience of the riding public. Philadelphia and Chicago are also good examples of the right way to do it.

Actually, most places that have rail access at all seem to have done better: Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco--Los Angeles maybe not so much, no one-seat ride from downtown there.

But only after a bus ride from the terminal.
