The neighborhood issue came up because a poster accidentally said Jamaica Center instead of Sutphin and Archer/Jamaica Station. That's when it was mentioned that such a routing would entail a long walk through a so-so neighborhood. On the other hand, from the elevator to the airtrain is not a terribly long walk by itself, but for an older person with a walker, a bus to subway to airtrain, and then the walk to the terminal with luggage is probably a bad idea. direct bus terminal to terminal, where they move your luggage makes much more sense.
