the inspection station at JFK airport - which receives all the seeds from
Europe - is in Jamaica, New York (printed "Jamaica, NY"). 
So, you can imagine the problem!

FYI --
Jamaica, is not a city in New York; rather it is just a section in the borough of Queens in the city of New York, so the airport is really in New York, NY.  But, just as the people in Brooklyn use Brooklyn, NY not New York, NY, as their mailing address, so the folks in Jamaica, Queens, New York City, New York, may use Jamaica or Queens in their mailing address.  However, the airport is actually in a section known as Idlewild, rather than Jamaica; in fact, before the Kennedy assassination, the airport was known as Idlewild with call letters IDW, not JFK.
