WOW! New LaGuardia is nice! In the old LaGuardia it would've just been a waterfall of hot piss leaking from the ceiling....


Chem_BPY

Have they finally finished the construction at LaGuardia? Haven't been since 2019 and I'm pretty sure the nicest thing there at that point was an Auntie Anne's.


astralpitch

I think the delta terminal is still sorta in progress but LGA is nice now. Go figure


YesImKeithHernandez

> LGA is nice now What a time to be alive. I never thought I would see the day that those words were ever uttered.


MightyCaseyStruckOut

I fly into LaGuardia for the first time next month. I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks and to find this fountain if it's at my terminal.


WasteBandicoot

It’s in Terminal B.


MightyCaseyStruckOut

Thanks! Too bad I'm flying into Terminal C haha


WasteBandicoot

Terminal C also just opened a few months ago so I’m sure you’ll enjoy your experience there too. Terminal A is the only one not recently renovated since it’s a historical landmark.


Kaoculus

Terminal C is beautiful too.


sprashoo

Left New York 9 years ago, still find this hard to picture. Next you’ll tell me you no longer wish for the sweet release of death as soon as you enter Penn Station


captainwizeazz

Still sucks to get to.


crizznaig

The starting point matters... coming from the throgs, of rather LGA than JFK...


Kaladin_Bridgeless

Lol delta terminal is 100% old school LGA. Shocker.


SavageGreek

Somehow yes! Honestly surprised to see this day, especially since they’ve been doing construction since I was a kid


InterPunct

Spent 30 years of my career (pre-COVID) flying out of LaGuardia every fucking week. The new terminals are absolutely gorgeous. This pisses me off.


TQuake

Been about 6 months since I was there. When I was most things were updated, but I did have to take a stroll through an un-renovated portion on the way to my gate. So I think they're quite close, but still have some work left.


YouKnowNothingJonS

Yes! I think there’s one left to finish renovating. But I flew out of LGA recently and it was so nice I’m trying to get all of my flights out of there now.


Scipio11

Yes and no, they're still working on the garages which are also where Uber/Lyft pickups are.


BlankImagination

They haven't completely finished but their hard work is finally showing. I think this water fall is in the Southwest Airline terminal


soonerguy11

The old Laguardia was a total dump for decades. It was so sad that one of (if not the) most prolific city in the world had such a junky airport to welcome people. They did such a good job upgrading it.


Metalprof

We flew out of Term B a couple of weeks ago. In my mind, LGA would be dirty and cramped. But if was clean, bright, and spacious. Flying on a Saturday probably helped, but it turned out to be one of the best airport experiences I've had in years.


TheSuburbs

The new LaGuardia legit feels like you're in a mall.


otis722

I don't trust this! You can say it is different all day long, but I'll never forget that one layover where I had a warm glass of white wine and then was told that if I needed to take a shit I should wait until I get on the plane.....I remember....


Tugan13

Oh don’t worry it still sucks


NoFairYouCheated

I honestly think new terminal B is the single best terminal in NYC area


tws87294

Lol thats a fairly low bar. Yeah Laguardia is historically the shittiest one but Newark and JFK aren't exactly pleasant But I still agree with you, it really is amazing after the renovation


danielleiellle

EWR Terminal C isn’t bad.


ghostofhumankindness

LGA is still a pain to get in and out of. I don't know if they can ever change that but B terminal is gorgeous. I'll never forget my first time there before the renovation. I thought it was a joke I wasn't in on.


iMoh

I second this, fly every other week from Terminal B, and it's a pleasure of an experience. Great food options, beautiful airport and facilities.


RedFireAlert

…..at LaGuardia? This is my LaGuardia we’re talking about right? What a world. I never thought I’d live to see the day.


Erie-Wackalana

I understand that there’s a spiffing new TWA terminal at Idlewild airport. I shall have to book a flight there on one of Mr. Lockheed’s new Constellation aeroplanes.


juiced911

The centurion lounge is the bees knees.


dnyank1

Flying out of Westchester (HPN) is like flying out of a private airport. 15 minutes from door to gate. Pretty great!


GrapeScotch

Are you high? I used to walk past what looked like refugee tent camps that smelled of stale hotdog water. It’s beautiful now.


soonerguy11

Strongly disagree. LaGuardia used to be an embarrassment. Now it is probably my fav airport in the tristate.


norcaltobos

I flew into LGA in June and was blown away at how nice it has gotten. It's not even close anymore, JFK and EWR are a far away second and third.


norcaltobos

Nothing blows harder than Newark though. Hands down, without a question the worst airport I have ever flown out of.


Meister_Retsiem

Can’t be a New Yorker without complaining about everything


IntrovertPharmacist

I still remember the one time I had a stopover in LaGuardia that there was an actual gate to board a plane ON A STAIRCASE.

Tbh, they likely just copy and pasted code from stackoverflow. Maybe you should target that community with your throat punch threats.


Plantsandanger

Reddit still chose to use any shitty code they copied. They’ve seen how awful it works and how much people hate it and want to fixed. That’s on Reddit.


Weird-Vagina-Beard

Yeah, no excuse for releasing something so shitty, untested, etc, on one of the most-used websites on the internet. But hey, they probably have a 4 year degree.

I use Reddit is Fun on mobile and it always works flawlessly for me, so I find it hard to understand the hate.

ThunderingRimuru

i have a few problems with the player, but the reddit app is worse with how many times it just freezes


MightyCaseyStruckOut

Yep, I use reddit is fun also and have switched to the official reddit app from time to time for various reasons. The reddit video player does have a few issues with lag on RiF, but it is a steaming pile of shit on the reddit app.


crypticedge

Throat punches for everyone!


ok_tru

This is such a brainlet took-a-CS-class-in-University take. Yes, writing software requires lots of research every day, and stackoverflow is a common forum for that research to be discussed, but that’s no excuse for releasing shitty software, just because they “copy and pasted from a common forum”.


water_baughttle

Relax, you don't have to worry about copilot coming for your job just yet. It's just a programming meme. Spend 5 seconds on /r/programmerhumor and you'll see it plenty.


ok_tru

Yes, which is why most people who actually work in software development despise 99% of what’s posted on that sub.


water_baughttle

>Yes, which is why most people who actually work in software development despise 99% of what’s posted on that sub. "Yes, it's a meme, but here's some other random statement to justify taking a joke too seriously". I also work in software development, but I can take a joke. There's some funny stuff there, lots of repetition though just like every other subreddit.


ok_tru

We are all allowed our hills to die on. Mine is seeing redditors cosplaying as devs speaking for a profession that they thoroughly misunderstand.


water_baughttle

"CODE IS CRAFT" - You, probably It's just programming. It's not that serious.


ok_tru

… Ok dude


y0m0tha

exactly lol


water_baughttle

Exactly, what? Programming is such a part of your identity that anyone who casually enjoys it upsets you? My god, some of you guys are such fucking dorks. Imagine if chefs reacted the same way you are about hobbyist programmers. "This motherfucker had the audacity to microwave leftovers. I hope they get food poisoning for disgracing my profession".


THE_GR8_MIKE

It's not Stack Overflow's fault some stupid reddit intern doesn't know what they're doing.


dedasdude

Nah. It reddit app used to work fine before back in 2020 ish. They put some edgy non technical person in charge and they keep adding useless features that break existing crucial features. Or might be one of those nu-age inexperienced devs who belive python is the solution to everything.


dcon1216

Lol its always the worst feeling to hop onto an app for the first time since an update and see what the developers decided to screw up for no reason. That's exactly how I felt the day reddit added the video player that rarely works when I used to have zero issues before. Not to mention not being able to navigate all the comments and other issues I seem to come across more and more.

RedStoneTheWolf

They need to make it to where we can save vids


SEND_ME_REAL_PICS

Right? It's been *years* and not only do people still have to rely on the save video bots for downloading, but also the video player doesn't even work anymore. And all it has to do is play videos! How could they get that wrong? We're de-evolving.


AirlinesAndEconomics

You can't even save photos now! The official app is garbage.


BlackSecurity

Never use the official app. I personally use Reddit is Fun and have 0 issues. I can also save pictures and videos!


Pr0nzeh

Just use a 3rd party app. This is a solved problem.


PM_UR__BUBBLE_BUTTS

It shouldn’t even need to be solved with a completely different app. It’s a video player. It’s supposed to do just that one thing. It was fine until they switched to whatever garbage they developed on their own a while back. We can communicate and receive data still from something we yeeted from earth into space decades ago, but it’s too hard to play a video on the phone when we click the play button?


dandroid126

The third party apps came first, so wouldn't that mean that the official reddit app is the other app? I'm not sure why Reddit decided to make something that was worse than what already existed. And I'm really perplexed why anyone would use the new, worse app over the tried and true apps.


Creepas5

Seriously, I do not understand the appeal of the official reddit app when things like RiF exist. Such a better experience.


Gloomy-Employment-72

Have to admit, I've never heard of RiF. Going to look for it now.


Thraxx01

"Reddit is Fun" by the way if you haven't already found it


FirstSugar7071

Reddit made them change their name because they were the #1 result in Google Play and Reddit was sick of it. It's actually "RIF is fun" now.


Thraxx01

Really? That's ridiculous, I've had it on my phone for so long that I had no idea! Edit: wow, the name is "rif is fun" on the shortcut too, I never noticed before.... my world just got turned upside down lol


Weird-Vagina-Beard

I prefer Joey on Android. But they're both good.


Creepas5

Reddit is fun, might be android only


Anigame01

When I search rif, all I see is an app called apollo for reddit. Is that it? Edit: Cool thanks y’all, Imma try out Apollo then.


blogem

No it's rif. Used to be 'reddit is fun' now just 'rif is fun', I think (trademarks and shit). It's the old reddit interface and just awesome.


Anigame01

Is it an android exclusive? I just don’t see it on ios. I think iOS version of rif is apollo for reddit then, because it’s the first search result when I type rif.


dudeedud4

For iOS you want Apollo.


blogem

Ah, yeah, I think it's android exclusive.


Pikalima

Switch to Apollo, and don’t look back.


Creepas5

Reddit is fun, might be android only


Techiedad91

Apollo is an absolutely perfect Reddit app imo. The dev is always able to answer questions on Reddit. It’s a great app. Aaaand it shows thumbnails of videos so you’ll never get rickrolled again


1lluminist

Same reason why people use the current design of the website over old.reddit.com. I'm not sure what that reason is, though


Matti_Matti_Matti

They bought Alien Blue and employed the creator then threw it out for their completely useless in-house version. That’s when I moved to Narwhal.


Gilthoniel_Elbereth

A lot of third party apps are older than the official reddit app. It’s not even a problem third party apps solved; it’s a problem the first party app *introduced*


Kanjo_bazooieYT

A small tip if your on mobile, if the video won’t play, sometimes if you go to the comments for some reason it will play, and you can close them, and it should work. At least it works for me, I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now


PlanetStealthy

I just click the little "v.reddit" thing next to the text that shows how long ago the post was made


SlippyIsDead

That's what I do. Go to the comments and then refresh the page. Works everytime.


Pr0nzeh

I agree but I don't have the energy to get mad at things that I can solve by downloading an app.


joe1134206

It would be solved a lot sooner if, instead of just complaining, enough of these users actually installed the far better third party app. They would have to actually put effort in if people put the tiniest bit of effort beyond just noting the problem.


PenguinsAreScary

No. It makes new problems. I've used Boost and Infinity and the video players are great but the algorithm is garbage. My posts don't sort properly and I keep seeing posts I've seen before.


DragoSphere

The algorithm doesn't change. Reddit apps are largely just skins. My Boost, Infinity, official app, _and_ desktop all have the same front page right now. You likely have it set to hide posts after having seen them before, while the apps don't have that I don't know what you mean by sorting either. That's a super vague comment without context, which doesn't even make sense since, like I said, unofficial apps are skins of either the official app or the website

Yeah. Pevnick is my neighbor. Lol. Really nice dude and his family is also sweet. He is really proud of all the fountains he has done.


aaaaayyyyyyyyyyy

Does their house have one though?


notLOL

I saw a tiktok of an air hostess or jet setter. Language barrier do not sure. and she passed by this airport fountain in op and in the caption says "when you order fountains like Saudi Arabia on wish". It had a meager amount of views comparatively but the slight regarding these mini spruce ups from young people is ridiculous Not everyone appreciates them but I do. Glad your neighbor is doing well with them


NickLandis

Interesting. I was just thinking that it might not be too hard to program something like this and that it could even work using an analogue signal like a TV signal. Realistically you're just drawing lines of varying intensity whether it's in this fountain or on a TV. (Not saying that's how this fountain works, just how it could work)


rafyy

the LGA one is made by a french company, [Aquatique Show.](https://www.aquatic-show.com/en/)


cookie_kindness

He was my computer graphics professor in the ‘90s. I don’t remember a single project we worked on and I don’t remember him being a good teacher. But he showed us a VHS of some of these fountains he’d worked on and they were so impressive and ahead of their time that they stuck with me.

For real! I was there most of the day recently and enjoyed the shows immensely. Alternates between 2 shows every 15 minutes iirc.

hungry4danish

And I feel like most people's introduction to this tech in a fountain was [this clip from Osaka Station.](https://youtu.be/dhOYRHt2cqM)


xToniGrssx

There’s a similar one in Budapest at Millenaris Park, printing out even the parliament! Take a look [here](https://youtu.be/gzA0bz_y_Kw)! It’s at 1:29. Awesome engineering indeed.


anantarctic

It’s not like for like but there’s a 40m waterfall/fountain that’s similar in Singapore’s Changi airport! Tallest indoor waterfall in the world


KeeperOfTheGood

This is a terrible video, but there’s been one of these at MONA in Hobart, Tasmania for years, that just drops an endless sequence of random words. There’s also a gigantic wall of casts of hundreds of different womens’ vulvas. And a grotto full of glass dildos. And a fat car. And a mechanical digestive system that actually poops. And a heap of other phenomenal things. Highly recommend a visit! https://youtu.be/zYnIrkPFbP0

I’m about to fly out of there next trip I take just so I can see it!!

oh yeah? i went to the airport in Chicago and they have toilet seats covered in plastic that would rotate out

I don’t even have dyslexia and I couldn’t read it. Imo the things fucking stupid. Why would the letters wrap around like that? makes it impossible to read.


Wiggledude787

I'm sure it makes sense for the people who live there, but people who aren't familiar with the areas might have a hard time recognizing it. I got Brooklyn and Bronx, but not the other two areas.

>dose Dyslexia confirmed.


bfandreas

It is weird. I sometimes mix up letters that look similar and also got diagnosed by a guy on reddit. Not entirely wrong. My doctor asked me if it was a problem. I said no. My doctor shrugged with her shoulders. All I need to do is follow the red squiggly lines under my words. But thanks to that forgotten Redditor I know what the red squiggly line under my words is.

Doot_Dee

Is it really an “international” airport? I don’t think it’s a port of entry. There are flights from Canada where passengers pass the USA border in Canada. I don’t think they take any other international flights.


maru-fan

It’s a domestic airport. Only precleared flights from outside the US can have it as a destination (Canada, Ireland, etc)


Dobey2013

Lol when we were there my wife and daughter stopped in awe. I thought they were crazy. I could have farmed karma!


hiroshimarickshaw

You think this is cool wait til you see Changi airport!


cmink79

Sorry but LaGuardia is a domestic airport, not international


Gangreless

I had to fly into Laguardia and then take a cab to JFK when I went to Russia, because for some reason we couldn't get a direct flight to JFK and of course LaGuardia isn't international. Pain in the ass. That cab ride was the wildest roller coaster I'd ever been on, though.


SevenSoIaris

For some reason it just cracks me up that you had a cab ride sandwiched between two plane rides. It's usually the other way around.


Foodtown69

The idea of being stuck on the Van Wyck in a cab makes me wanna barf. Next time, try the LGA-JFK helicopter. It’s only 900 bucks.


Gangreless

I don't know what route we took, it seemed to be all interstate type highway but we weren't stuck, we were flying, bobbing, and weaving lmao


dherling

How have I been flying there from Canada then? :P


itsnorm

From Wikipedia: The airport does not have US customs and border protection (CBP) facilities. As such, international arrivals are only possible from outstations serviced by United States border preclearance. Passengers and crewmembers on these flights 'clear' customs at their departure airport and -- for immigration purposes -- are considered to be on US territory during their entire journey, allowing them to exit LaGuardia in the same manner as domestic travelers.


KeeperOfTheGood

Yea I’ve done that pre-clearance out of Vancouver. It’s really handy!


chuloreddit

There are " American" zones in some airports, when you enter and pass through immigration even before you get on the plane. Little American enclave in an airport in a different country. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_border_preclearance


cmink79

Still considered domestic [source](https://upgradedpoints.com/travel/airports/laguardia-lga-airport/)

It works basically the same as scrolling text on those old screens. The text just scrolls downwards, and you only care about the first row. Then you just switch out the pixels for water valves.

Capital_Pair_7161

Looking at this having a bit of electronics experience that is a very creative yet parts-intensive piece but the programming would be pretty straightforward. It's fairly simple to program opening times in valves to have the letters appear. You'll just have to control... let's say 256 valves (256 is able to be expressed in 8 binary digits). With the amount of work on the valves they'll have to be robust (read expensive) and you'll need 256 of them

I just was there today for the first time since the renovation, and God damn isn't LaGuardia night and day. I'm 18 minutes away and would still actively avoid it it was such a dump. It's wonderful now.

Just a few weeks back I was standing exactly where you are now, like literally the same place. I watched the fountain for almost an hour straight transfixed by it unable to get my eyes off of it. The ultimate satisfaction it sounds like, the smell of the place, the scenery especially in the morning, etc. Make it such a good welcome area in terms of airports

LGA is an abysmal airport. I swear to god it's designed to permanently trap people on its roads to feed some ancient Old God. It's so bad [SNL has a whole skit about it](https://youtu.be/6d7Vk_qaiB8) The fountain is cool, but I hope that place burns down and they build a functional airport where it once stood.
