HUH ? Why do people who have no idea what They are talking about state things like they are fact ? I bet you didnt know that NASA has offices i nNYC, The united nations has its ofices here (There were astronauts from other countries also). JFK was one of the shuttles emergency landing sites.
They could ship the shuttle by barge to nyc and make it easy to transport. Would be a lot cheaper and safer then by jumbo jet.
