    I've been to NYC, felt like an ant in an ant farm....... not interested in ever returning, now I will make it a point.

    The Smithsonian will have Discovery at their new National Air and Space Museum, it's a mere 200 miles from New York City.......... I would think that tourist on the East Coast will go there if they are interested. The shuttle sitting out on the deck of an aircraft carrier in a place that was probably more against it than most makes, no sense. Most of the widows of those lost in the 2 shuttle accidents still live in the Houston area. One of the most famous quotes having to do with space is "Houston, We have a problem".......... they didn't call New York to solve their problem. Houston personnel have been the brains of the NASA's space program from the beginning, giving the shuttle to New York City is a slap in the face to Houston, to Texas and Texans and to all of the incredibly dedicated personnel that directed every launch and recovery.

    Chucky Shumer's a twat and can't pronounce an H, what an embarrassment he is.

    How creative of you. Yet, nothing to do with the subject of the thread.

    NYC, while the cultural heart of NYS, as well as the financial hub of the country, is not ALL of NYS. We have mountains and farms and enough wide open spaces to cause one to wish for closer quarters at times.
    Not THAT close, mind you, but still.
