(New York City) -- Governor James E. McGreevey
along with New York Governor George E. Pataki, today proposed
re-naming Newark International Airport, “Liberty International
Airport at Newark.”
The Governors made the announcement during the
unveiling of plans for a state-of-the-art viewing wall at Ground
Zero that will permit visitors to both pay their respects and safely
view the World Trade Center site.
“The events of September 11th
shattered our domestic tranquility and threatened us all,” said
McGreevey. “Governor Pataki and I agree that it would be appropriate
to commemorate the memory of the heroes of that day by this proposed
name-change for Newark International Airport.”
Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversee Newark Airport,
will review the Governors’ proposal.
