Upcoming Events Calendar
Happy New Year. Yes, it is another
New Year. And what a great year it is
anticipated to be. Governor Cuomo
set upon a vast endeavor to redevelop
LaGuardia, Newark and JFK Airports.
Never before have all three airports
undergone the metamorphosis that
they are experiencing and will do in
2020 and years beyond. There are
unparalleled minority and small business
opportunities in the construction,
concessions and supportive services
that in part can be found in the
community development centers near
each airport. See Redevelopment
In 2019 retrospect, there were top
level personnel changes at JFK and
LaGuardia (LGA) airports. Charles
Everett was appointed GM of JFK
Airport. Lisa Scully retired after years of
dedicated service at the Port Authority
and most recently as GM of LGA.
She was replaced by Tony Vero who
was Deputy for her at LGA. Christine
Callahan came aboard as Deputy GM
at La Guardia. Terry Rizzuto became
Deputy GM at JFK after then Deputy
Tony Vero moved back to LGA as GM.
Chinese New Year is January 25. The
Chinese cultural influence has grown
in the U.S. and is exemplified by the
number of airlines now servicing the
NY area, moving tourists, and business
people from China’s growing industrial
cities. Some terminals at the airports will
hold cultural events and celebrations.
