WILL THE NEW YORK FOOTBALL JETS (as Chris Berman always describes them) actually be returning to New York? BusinessWeek says they could be movin’ on up from the Meadowlands in North Jersey to a dee-luxe stadium on Manhattan’s west side, where former a Penn Central railroad yard currently resides.

But considering how many times developers have tried to tackle this area and failed (Donald Trump planned to build condos there, and the article mentions that former mayor Rudolph Giuliani “championed a west side stadium in the 1990s as part of the city’s bid to host the Summer Olympics.”), I’ll believe it’s happening when construction starts.
