New York: Is restricted airspace necessarily the answer?

With the recent tragic death of Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor, the calls for restricting airspace over New York will probably only increase. I have mixed feelings about this issue, but I am leaning towards supporting restriction. I just really don't think that the freedom of a few tourists wanting to fly around the skyscrapers in helicopters matters that much. The cost of the aircraft and the damage to the buildings will always be many times the price charged by the charter services.
