New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo laid out an ambitious five-part agenda for Long Island when he delivered his regional State of the State address at SUNY Farmingdale State College on Tuesday.
Originally the ancestral home of Native Americans and later settled by Europeans during the 1600s, Long Island is rich in history and loaded with folklore, myths and urban legends. From ancient Native American burial grounds to remnants of the Revolutionary War to Gatsby-era mansion estates, Long Island is hallowed ground—the stage for countless triumphs and tragedies throughout the centuries.
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) this week called on the Federal Aviation Administration to increase local airport safety checks following a recent string of small plane crashes on Long Island. The senator said FAA ramp inspections, which determine if airports are in compliance with federal regulations and safe operating practices, have dropped 70 percet at New York airports in the past decade. He urged the FAA to reverse that trend during a news conference Monday at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, the site of the eighth small plane crash on LI so far this year, the most since 2012. Schumer noted that the crashes and inspections aren’t directly linked.
