2008_10_chuckhil.jpgThe other day, Senators Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton were thrilled with securing $18.55 million in funds to build an Army Reserve Center complex on Staten Island. However, today the Staten Island Advance reports it's improbable the complex will be built on Staten Island: "The Army Corps of Engineers has told the Advance that the three-building training complex for 300 Reservists likely will be built in Caven Point, N.J., in Hudson County, because there wasn't enough federal land available to accommodate the project here."
