Liberty International Airport?

The Star-Ledger reports that Governors Pataki and McGreevey yesterday announced their intention to change the name of Newark International Airport to "Liberty International Airport at Newark". Governor Pataki said:

Governor McGreevey and I both believe that it's appropriate that we change the name of Newark Airport to Liberty International Airport to pay tribute to the heroes we lost on Sept. 11, and recognize that the metropolitan region has been the gateway to liberty and the gateway to America for millions for centuries.


  • Did anyone have any idea that this plan was even being discussed before the announcement?
  • How does the name "Liberty International Airport" specifically evoke memories of the victims of September 11?

The main reason we might object to the name "Liberty International Airport" is the ambiguity of it. But, the announcement came as such a surprise that it's probably too early to take a definitive position on the issue.
