It's finally over! The New York Jets have officially ended their bid for the West Side Railyards and their quest to put a football stadium in Manhattan. Now, the MTA will be free to bid out the land to whomever they please while the Jets try to figure out whether or not they want to share another stadium with the Giants in Jersey or if Queens politicians will bend over and offer them the Fountain of Planets site in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. In all honesty, Gothamist hopes that the excitement coming from the Jets this season will be from the football field, but we'll take what we can get.
