United States Senator Charles Schumer, Representative Jerrold Nadler, NYS Assembly Member Michael DenDekker and other New York City elected officials and civic leaders will join NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver at a ceremony presenting the title for the Space Shuttle ‘Enterprise’ to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on Sunday, December 11th from 1:00 PM-1:30 PM at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.  Media check-in begins at 12:30 PM.
