Bipartisan bloc working to keep air traffic control facilities in Garden City and Ronkonkoma

Driving past 1515 Stewart Avenue, there’s a non descript fenced-in compound with a tower, that upon first glance resembles a cable television outpost. But inside, directions are being provided to a steady stream of incoming and outgoing aircraft from four of the largest airports in the tri-state area.

At a recent press conference held at the front of the aforementioned Stewart Avenue address, a bipartisan Long Island congressional delegation laid out its plan to keep the facilities in their current locations.
