    Fun fact: the French wanted to have the Statue of Liberty finished and delivered to the United States by their Centennial in 1876, but they didn’t finish it. So instead they shipped just the hand and torch which was displayed in the public arena until the rest of the statue could be delivered years later.

    Can New York and New Jersey at least share The Statue of Liberty? Use equality and reason. Who the heck wants New York and New Jersey together for a new combined state New Jersey York?

    I have a suggestion that I think will make everyone happy.
    We create a new state, one that consist of the entirety of the New York metropolitan area and nothing else.
    That way Newark will become part of the state of New York City, while Upper New York will be a landlocked state ruled from Albany.
