It’s about time we renamed La Guardia airport! With the proposed (long-overdue, much-desired) top-to-bottom renovation of La Guardia, the New York Times ponders this question:
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has declared that the $4 billion rebuilding planned at La Guardia Airport in Queens will amount to replacing the airport “in its entirety.”
So is it time, after 76 years, to replace the name, too?
It was the first airport in New York City proper and a marvel at the time of its opening. Today the airport is dated, crowded and inadequate.
Is there any gay iconic name that might make sense? How about Amelia Earhart? Or perhaps Ed Koch? Maybe name it for the grandfather of gay travel, Hanns Ebensten. Or maybe something else. Let us know if you have any ideas in the comments section below.
