MINEOLA, N.Y. (August 10, 2012)--New York's Montauk Airport, which features a 3,200-foot landing strip, one small hanger and an office, is up for sale.
A listing with Prudential Douglas Elliman shows an asking price of $18 million for the airport on the far eastern tip of Long Island, about 120 miles from midtown Manhattan.
Over the years, airport manager Helen Gil says she has seen celebrities from U2's Bono and Paul McCartney to such locals as Billy Joel and Paul Simon coming and going.
Businessman and state lawmaker Perry Duryea, who later ran for governor, opened the airport in 1957.
He died in 2004.
Because of its size, it's too small for jets to land and can handle only propeller planes and helicopters.
