I didn't have a dog in the fight but I think a case could have been made for cutting one or two of the shuttles into two pieces. Yes, it's good to see an entire shuttle but save that for KSC and the Smithsonian. The other two could have been "doubled" and more people would have access to them. Houston, Dayton, and two other locations could have been served.
I'm on the side of what's up with New York? That one certainly should have gone to another deserving location. Plus with New York in the mix that puts three on the east coast. Yeah, I know the population density is highest along the eastern seaboard, but New York?
