Governors Island International?

New, 3 comments

Picture our dear, beloved Governors Island with a big ol' airport on top of it. That, the Daily News reminds us, was what former Congressman and Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia wanted to do with the place in the '20s and '30s, before he dropped the cause and started looking elsewhere. A five-minute ferry ride to catch a plane does sound kind of nice, right? The Daily News adds, "As for Governors Island, these decades later it's still the case that no particularly good use has been found for it." Um, hello, prison? [NYDN]
