    error

    Please find an error (errors) in the next sentence.
    Note those bolded "at" and "in".


    In the current state of things, George will be responsible for drawing up and implementing the stricter security regulations at New York's three premier airports: JFKennedy, La Guardia and in Newark.



    1. Must "at New York's three premier airports" be changed into " in New York's ~"?

    2. Must "in Newark" be changed into "Newark"?


    Please answer the questions one by one and if there are more errors in the sentence, tell me.

    This is how I read it,

    at New York's three premier airports
    ==> at the location sites

    : JFK, La Guardia, and (the airport) in Newark
    ==> "in" seems odd to me, too. That is, I have no idea what the name of the airport is in Newark, NJ, but if it's called "Newark", then 'in' definitely sounds odd.

    All the best, :D
