FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM STATEMENT ON
From Susan Marenoff-Zausner, President, Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum:
We are excited and honored to have been chosen as a home for the Enterprise, and to help perpetuate the legacy of one of our country’s greatest technological achievements. On behalf of everyone at the Intrepid, our thanks go out to NASA for recognizing that New York City will be a great home for her.
We are grateful to our elected leaders who worked tirelessly on our behalf, including Senators Schumer and Gillibrand and the New York State Congressional Delegation; New York Governors Andrew Cuomo and David Paterson; New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg; Council Speaker Christine Quinn; George Fertitta and NYC & Co.; Bill Rudin and the Association for a Better New York; and the 19 Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients, 12 Distinguished Marines and the many others who wrote letters and signed the petition to NASA.
We are gratified that NASA has recognized that New York will be an outstanding home for Enterprise, and that the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will create an amazing exhibit to showcase her. Our congratulations go out to the other museums and institutes where the Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavor will have new homes. We wish them great success.
