It would be kind of interesting to see the Trans Brooklyn-Queens-Bronx line become a reality.

Also any reason the M couldn't be made to be a closed loop?

Loops are bad for scheduling reasons, it's why London's Circle Line is now no longer a true circle.

It's true that the current Continental Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue terminals are so close to each other, a loop is conceivable. But that would be taking the whole line into consideration; it wouldn't be running as a circle line in Manhattan (which would be closer in concept to what Chicago has).

LIRR Grand central in 2020 or so...

Whoa! Every time I see a date for this project it moves further into the future
Is it ever going to happen? what kind of progress are they making--if any?

And La Guardia access to Manhattan and anywhere else, Airtrain or whatever, what kind of timelines have people seen for that?

^ The proposal to extend the N line to La Guardia is just that; a proposal. It's not likely we'd see any change in status before the 2 Avenue subway is running (unless something unusual like a lot of pressure from politicians became a part of the scenario).

MTA needs better signaling systems for all lines so they can run shorter headways during peak hours. Also, some sort of public education thingy to persuade people not to be jackasses on the trains by holding them up, being loud and obnoxious, or throwing their refuse everywhere (additional garbage collection services in the stations would be nice, too).
