Right, I was only thinking in the sense of unlimited money. Probably would take $5-10B to do a "Dubai style" artificial peninsula off Manhattan that included a stadium.

Again, the NIMBY's. People who live in NYC already complain massively about overcrowding and traffic, both foot traffic and vehicle traffic. Just know it'll be a bigger fight than World War II trying to build anything that massive in Manhattan. There's a reason Westside Stadium was shot down. There's a reason no outdoor sports team plays in Manhattan and two play in a much less glamorous state across the river.

I'm mildly surprised the Knicks still play in the heart of town.

NIMBY's are at least consistent. In NYC, there is this weird coalition between preservationists, conservationists and modernists and their respective visions of Manhattan.

It's why it's impossible to modernize JFK, but throw crazy money at LGA even though the airport is too small to improve. They want to tear down MSG to and create a new Penn Station.

Manhattan and San Francisco (city proper) are great places to visit. I can't possibly imagine living in either ..... probably because I'd only be able to afford a 50 sqft basement storage room.

Anything is possible if you put you mind to it. I found a $1, 000/month apartment across the river in Jersey. I'm sure you find something relatively cheap in Harlem, which has begun to lose some of its historic identity as being African American-only.

Well, I guess in my mind I thinking mid to lower Manhattan, but of course you're correct.
