Whoever was working JFK final around 1945ish was pretty dern funny.  We were "cleared for the veeeeezual approach."  What a pleasant experience.  NY air traffic controllers are awesome.

Not much the faa can do about NY atc.  Staffing is horrible and no one wants to work there.  Once you certify in one of the big facilities up there you are garanteed to be stuck there for awhile..

A guy who just retired was noted for saying that & some of us copy that as an homage.
