"New Yorkers like to think of their city, for all its chaotic energy, as a product of enlightened urban planning, a great metropolis that overcame the failure of most American cities to be shaped by any force other than the automobile. But the lack of convenient rail service to any of the metropolitan area's major airports has long undermined these pretensions...the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey opened its $415 million link to Newark International Airport. It connects the region's extensive railroad system to the existing airport AirTrain, a monorail that connects Newark's passenger terminals and parking areas."
