The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is temporarily ceasing preparatory work on the controversial $2.1 billion LaGuardia Airport AirTrain project.

“At Governor Hochul’s request, the Port Authority is undertaking a thorough review of potential alternative mass transit options to LaGuardia Airport,” the agency said in a press release Tuesday afternoon. “The agency will work in close consultation with independent experts and stakeholders, and will complete its work as expeditiously as possible, consistent with the need for the review to be thorough and rigorous. During the review, the Port Authority will pause further action with respect to the LaGuardia AirTrain project.”

After years of delaying his dreams and then taking them elsewhere, Jason Frazer, who grew up in South Ozone Park, will co-anchor for the Fox Weather app with fellow meteorologist Amy Freeze in the Big Apple on Oct. 25.

“Growing up, I always used to watch Al Roker and a couple of the other meteorologists — Lloyd Lindsay Young on Channel 9,” said Frazer, who now lives in Long Island City. “One of the things that I was fascinated about both of those meteorologists was that they were very really good storytellers. They made you feel as though, even if you weren’t a scientist, you understood what was happening.”
