Should We Turn Central Park into an Airport?

An idea so bad, it’s hard to see how Robert Moses didn’t come up with it first: a group calling itself the Manhattan Airport Foundation has suggested that the most “underutilized” parcel in Manhattan be turned into a central, conveniently located airport. The only thing stopping this prank proposal from becoming reality is that it involves planes instead of cars. If we could turn central park into a cloverleaf cum parking lot, now that idea would take off.
