Feds - NYC Has No National Icons to Protect

In connection with the 40% cut in funds to New York City for homeland security, the federal government apparently feels that New York City is not a prime terrorist threat, finding that the city had just four major financial assets at risk, and no national monuments or icons.

Financial capital of the world, the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve, (heck, the entire Wall Street area), the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Yankee Stadium, the United Nations, Ellis Island, the Staute of Liberty.

No national icons in New York City?
