I’m easily amused

1.9 billion dollar system

construction began in 1998

test train derailed in 2002

opened to the public in 2003

stations heated in winter, air conditioned in summer

free within the terminal

five bucks from the city

50 minutes from 53rd/Lexington on the E

fully computerized

runs 24/7

every 5 to 10 minutes during rush hours

every 15 to 20 minutes evenings and weekends

operates without conductors or motormen

nine connecting airline terminals

over 5 million passengers per year

more fun than Disney

the wonderful JFK AirTrain
