    The MTA should take this unexpected time to convert one of the middle two platforms in the Howard Beach subway station into a platform.

    This third platform could be used to extend the Rockaway Shuttle beyond Broad Channel into the Howard Beach station. This would immensely improve the Rockaway Shuttle by connecting it directly to the Air Train. It would encourage the development of hotels for layovers from Kennedy in the Rockaways (Air Train + Shuttle), and we know the Rockaways needs all the economic development they can get after Sandy. This could be done concurrent to the repairs and without interfering with train traffic or schedules.
