Letter: MacArthur Airport shops are off-limits

How many people know of the shops at Long Island MacArthur Airport ["Piece of the action," News, Aug. 19]? If you are not flying in and out, you have no access to most shops. Most are beyond the security checkpoint. The Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame exhibit is also beyond the checkpoint. The corridor that displays all the photos of sports stars is desolate. Who benefits? Not the public. We have a friend whose husband's picture is on the wall and she has never seen it. How sad is that? The airport needs another large carrier that goes to places Southwest doesn't.
