The comfort and convenience of Manhattanites takes precendence over the basic needs of Queensites yet again:
Train to JFK May Lose to Second Avenue Line
If there were an express train from JFK to lower Manhattan, Queens would experience less auto congestion, especially near the airport, as many people would probably opt for the train rather than take an expensive cab ride. In turn, volume in Manhattan would also be alleviated somewhat.
It may also make taking the E train easier, as those with the gigantic rolling suitcases would opt for the lower Manhattan express. If the train made additional stops and allowed others on, it would further reduce overcrowding on the other lines.
But it's more important that Bloomie's pals on the upper east side get a second subway line.
