In 2002, Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro set out to give Tribeca new life after the events of 9/11. Their creation, the Tribeca Film Festival, was not only a smashing success its inaugural year, drawing in more than 150,000 visitors and raising more than $10 million, but since has grown to become one of the most respected film festivals in the industry. Making headlines this year was the announcement that Shrek Forever After will premiere as the opening-night film—the first 3D movie for the festival. To participate, touch down atteterboro Airport (TEB)
• Technically in the New Jersey Meadowlands, Teterboro is only 12 miles from midtown Manhattan, making it a favorite among the famous. Everyone from Donald Trump to Paris Hilton to Oprah Winfrey to Sting has been spotted taxiing down the runways at Teterboro.
• FBOs include Meridian Teterboro, Jet Aviation, Atlantic Aviation Services, Signature Flight Support, and First Aviation Services.
• It is such a prominent airport for private aircraft that when Gulfstream considered the design of the new G650, weight restrictions were put in place to keep the plane at 99,600 pounds, just enough to fly in under Teterboro’s 100,000-pound limit.
• Claiming 827 acres, Teterboro offers 90 acres of hangar space and offices and 408 acres of runways, while the remaining 329 acres remain undeveloped.
