Overheard on the 7 Train

As I was taking the 7 towards Flushing this afternoon, I overheard a couple of fans of the St. Louis Cardinals (from St. Louis) comparing the mass transit systems of St. Louis and NYC. They remarked about how the NYC Subway went "just about everywhere." However, they made a key point on how St. Louis' Metro got you to the airport with a new and clean train. Here in NYC, LaGuardia Airport is only connected by buses. (JFK Int'l is connected by the AirTrain, but no one really rides that since you have to get out and transfer to the local subway to head to the city.) If only we had the money...and political will.
