Why not start a movement to import the Statue of Liberty inland? most people do not come by sea anymore, and an airport would really be more sisgnificant tnan an island which New Jersey wants to call its own. or had Minneapolis not heard that argument. My father said when their sip (he was in the Navy) came home from Europe in WW2, they had EVERYONE,even the men in the infirmary, up on deck, and they ALL saluted Lady Liberty. ALL of them had quite a lump in their throats, too. He said at the end of the war, that meant a lot. BUT that was seventy years ago! Soldiers and Sailors come by air now.If you intend to be the new City that Never Sleeps, you'd better start learning how it's done. I live in very rural upstate NY, and even WE are Open ALl Night!
