"Great airport, bad neighbor"

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the busiest international commercial and freight airport in the country. There are close to one hundred airlines that fly in and out of JFK's eight passenger terminals. Terminal 5, the Jet Blue terminal, is gorgeous. AirTrain stops throughout the airport and connects to the city's subway station. A lot of buses also travel to the airport. As JFK is one of the busiest airports in the world, this causes many problems for people who live near the airport. For starters, residents in neighboring towns in both Queens and Nassau frequently complain about the noise from planes flying overhead. In particular, they complain about the noise from overnight flights. Several communities in both counties have banded together to complain about the problem. Other issues with living near JFK include concerns over pollution and the threat of terrorist attacks, as there have been quite a few false alarms in the years since 9/11. Another issue that bothers the airport's neighbors is the traffic on the Van Wyck and the Belt Parkway. Both highways are prone to heavy traffic, which is made worse by the cars heading to/from the airport.
