Could you land at Rikers Island going on a trip to La Guardia?
There are some big proposals for a new La Guardia Airport. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden have been talking about them and announced things are moving ahead.
Official renderings from the Governor’s office can be seen here.
The idea to use Rikers Island is from a group called Rethink NYC. They’re creative professionals based in New York. Jim Venturi admits the cost of his team’s ideas may be significantly higher than the $4 billion proposed by the Governor.
He says it’s time to think even bigger.
