LaGuardia Aiport is spelled incorrectly. It should be "airport".

I typed Donna Karan New York and it didn’t respond. Same with kennedy airport. Maybe widen the parameters of what spellings you allow?

Just FYI - it is NOT "north of madison park" it is "north of madison square park" as "madison square park" is the park's name - as a real estate agent who sells there, this drove me nuts and slowed me significantly. At least allow the proper answer, even if you keep "north of madison park".

Oh, and kudos on "Newark Liberty International Airport" - you caught me! Entered "Newark International Airport" 5 times before I remembered the official name, but it was too late by then and I missed that and Port Authority Bus Terminal which would have been easy for me had I gotten too it, but spent too much time forgetting "liberty" (and including "Park" which is correct - look it up: https://madisonsquarepark.org/ )

Thanks for a New York quiz that was finally CHALLENGING for me! Much appreciated!

Got them all except NoMad, with which I'm not familiar, and EWR, because I typed "Newark Airport" like thirty times and it wouldn't take it. I've also never heard anyone say "FiDi," but I was able to figure it out from the clue. This quiz really makes me miss home.
