Cortland's Economy Thriving

The Jets are doing wonders for Cortland's economy.

Bars and restaurants, banks and gas stations, houses of worship and even the local ice cream joint, Footie's Freez, are adorned with signs and marquees with messages welcoming the Jets.

The Jets' presence has, indeed, injected some fiscal energy and life into what is otherwise a region hit particularly hard by the poor economy.

Among the many businesses here that are grateful for having the Jets, who were off yesterday, there's one epicenter where a veritable shrine to the team in green exists.

I'm sure the town of Florham Park, which gave the Jets their state of the art facility, is thrilled to hear this.
