Will a flight scheduled to arrive at LaGuardia at 4:30pm leave me enough time to get to The Met by 7:30pm?

If I'd like to attend an event that starts at 7:30pm at The Met in New York on Wednesday, is a flight that's scheduled to arrive in LaGuardia at 4:35 likely to make me late?

I've booked this flight
from LAX->BWI->LGA -- the earliest flight I seem to be able to get out of LAX that day. Those details I linked say the on-time arrival record is excellent (100%), but the more I think about it, the more I'm worried that:
a) I may not be able to trust Southwest's stats (100%?), and the flight itself may not be on time -- I've heard New York airports have a big problem with air traffic congestion
b) I may be underestimating the amount of time it will take me to disembark, get transportation, drop off bags at a near-ish hotel, and get to the the Met.
Since I'm often not good at judging these things, I'd appreciate some other people's takes on whether Southwest's stats seem plausible, and what kind of travel time I might want to plan for on the ground at that time of day.
