The early planning once included a home for the New York Jets football
team. A vote by the Public Authorities Control board required unanimous
approval for the state's share of contribution to the stadium. Sheldon Silver,
concerned about lack of progress at the WTC site, decided to vote No on the
state's aid. As a result, though a relatively small part of the overall pricetage
for the stadium, it proved too costly for the JETS, who will now share a new
stadium in the Meadowlands with the New York Giants.

The Hudson Yards redevelopment meanwhile, continues to move forward.
