OUTLINE : Airport Access Program (AAP)
New York City, NY - 1994
Individual Experience

The estimated $2.8 billion AAP rail project was to connect Manhattan with LaGuardia and the John F. Kennedy (JFK) International airports: the scope involves the designed all off-airport stations which included four major intermodal stations.

Knowledge of the socio-political concerns, understanding the ebb and flow of New York City transportation, and appropriate unique design were keys to the success of this large and complex project.

Significant effort in the AAP Neighborhood Outreach programs were also important. The respondent also provided assistance in preparing appropriate design along the proposed rail alignment and attended many neighborhood meetings. The Airport Access Program and its rail station designs were subsquently featured in the Urban Center Museum at Helmsley Palace in New York City.
