At the SIEDC Conference this week there were many ideas presented for the redevelopment of the North Shore of Staten Island.

I found it very interesting that the possibility of developing a seaport was not even mentioned.

The reason I bring this up is that the planned expansion of the Panama Canal in 2014 will allow passage of much larger cargo ships and super tankers.

Unfortunately these ships will be too large to pass under the Bayonne Bridge and the New Jersey ports will lose this business.

If we converted some of the unused space on the North Shore we could facilitate these ships and connect to the Howland Hook terminal with the rail system already in place.

For that matter we could do the same with the Home Port.

I donít know if either of these are feasible ideas but I thought that they should at least be discussed.

It seems that if they were possible it would bring many new jobs to the Island and utilize what is now wasted space.
