I wish we got it, that Stadium looks so much nicer than the tin can we have now and it would have been great taking trains to the game rather than sitting in traffic.
We (we, as in NYC resident), almost did. If memory serves me right, it came down to the final hour. Funny thing was that the Olympics, not so much the Jets, was the reason why it almost was approved. The Olympics in the city would have been insane!
I was actually rooting for the stadium to be built in Manhattan, as were the New York Olympic committee. They needed that stadium there to be in the running for the 2012 Olympics. But the community did the right thing to veto that proposal. It would have been a logistical nightmare for something so big with so little room!
Manhattan is congested enough. Thought it would've been kinda cool, a new stadium there would not make much sense. You see how crazy 34th st is on nights when the Knicks play, and that's just an Arena. Imagine a 75,000 seat stadium.
