As virtually all the nations 50 busiest airports are, New Yorks were built for an age of propellers, before jet planes weighing 800,000 pounds needed over two miles of runway.

A. As virtually all the nations 50 busiest airports are

B. As with virtually all of the nations 50 busiest airports

C. Like virtually all of the nations 50 busiest airports

D. Like the cities where virtually all the nations 50 busiest airports are

E. Like other cities where virtually all the nations 50 busiest airports are

I assume that there is an ' after NewYorks i.e. it is New Yorks'.

Since the sentence is comparing airports (nouns) the best choice IMO is C

IMO C)

We are comparing airports so D) and E) are out. "Like" makes more sense than "As" for comparison so A) and B) are out
