Neat article. Probably the first time I've ever seen a Jepp plate from a mainstream media source.

They built the new stadium (Citi Field) literally right next door, so it may not be "Shea" anymore, but it's only been moved a couple hundred feet or so.

A name change and slight displacement on the chart seems to be all that's needed.

The Maspeth red and white check towers?

yeah, they've been gone for several years.

Yep, those are the ones... I remember flying into there and missed the NOTAM saying they were gone... we were a little confused when we were looking for them.. :)

You should watch the History Channel more. They had a show about the demolition of the tanks. They looked a lot bigger from ground level, until they brought them down.
