Governor Carey was elected by a landslide in 1974, becoming the first Democratic Governor in twenty years. Carey considered running for President in 1976 and 1980. Carey is best remembered for his successful handling of New York City's economic crisis in the late 1970s. As Governor he was responsible for building the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center; Battery Park City; the South Street Seaport and the economic development of the outer boroughs of NYC. He also helped provide state funding for the construction of the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University.
