The Manhattan Airport Foundation
The Manhattan Airport Foundation is a hoax site purporting to promote the conversion of New York's Central Park into an airport.

Clues that the site is a hoax: a) it's registered anonymously; and b) the foundation lists its address as "233 Broadway, 58th Floor, New York, New York." 233 Broadway is the Woolworth Building, which only has 57 floors.

Apparently, the Huffington Post didn't realize the site was a joke, and posted a link on its front page about the plan to build an airport in Central Park. (via gawker)

Hmm, too bad it's a fake. An airport just north of midtown would be kind of handy.

Well, I'll point out that the Huffington is almost as heavy satire as The Onion...

They ought to make a trans-Atlantic dirigible port there instead.

I'm surprised noone suggested turning it into a parking lot, because it's called Central Pa- nevermind
