Yesterday's stormy weather brought many transportation delays that will lead to some delays today as well. WABC 7 reported that many passengers leaving via JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark airports had waited 13-14 hours before heading to hotels. Today, JFK and Newark should be able to get their delayed passengers out, but given the small space that LaGuardia has, passengers are more likely to wait for their flights to even come in. It makes talk of the Port Authority possibly buying Stewart Airport in upstate Newburgh seem all the more logical. The Post says the land that Stewart occupies is bigger than Newark and LaGuardia combined.
And Amtrak service between NYC and Washington DC will face delays today after a derailment in Maryland last night. Some people were so desperate to leave DC that they hired a cab to drive them to NYC!
