They've been talking about a NYC-region tunnel for years. Never gets past the "gather the investors" stage. Last time it was supposedly to be near the Meadowlands. Never happened. Note how their website acknowledges they haven't even determined their location yet.
Rule of thumb: unless you actually see the foundation has been dug and poured, and the construction workers are actively busy on-site, don't hold your breath.
Until the foundation is in place and the motors are ready to be installed don't believe anything is going to open. I've heard talk of tunnels in NY, NJ, Chicago, and even second tunnels going up near existing tunnels and none of those have happened yet.

Agreed. Before they can get anything in in the Meadowlands they're going to have to replace most of the exposed electrics, and stop the parking garage from sinking into the swamp. Don't look for a tunnel there anytime soon.
is there some political, or regulatory reason that tri state area doesn't have a wind tunnel near by? i know there are a lot of skydivers in NYC. and a lot more would want to work on their freeflying techniques if it didnt involve the cost and travel. so what are the biggest hurdles?
