The executive director of the agency that owns the New York City-area airports and the World Trade Center site told senior aides on Thursday that he has resigned.

In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, Anthony Shorris said he expects his successor to be named next week at a board meeting of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Shorris told his aides that his resignation was submitted to the agency’s board chairman. Shorris was appointed by former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer last year to take over the agency, which also operates the harbor and the bridges and tunnels connecting New York City and New Jersey.

Spitzer resigned last month amid a prostitution scandal. Gov.David Paterson’s office isn’t immediately commenting.

Shorris told his staff that he has advanced every goal he tried to set for the agency _ including growth at the ports, upgrades to the PATH commuter rail system and buying a fourth airport for the region.
