Yesterday the Roosevelt Islander published a post regarding a conversation he had at our local Starbucks with a couple of folks who were dissatisfied with living at the Octagon. The long commute, ease and proximity to Manhattan etc. Anyhow these individuals mentioned they want out and were considering Hoboken. The Roosevelt Islander suggested they look at Riverwalk before contemplating Hoboken as they may find living next to the Tram and the Subway may ease their transportation burden and change their outlook on living here.
Well apparently Craig over at NJ.com took this as if the Roosevelt Islander was dissing Hoboken and felt he needed to compare our Tram to an amusement park ride etc. I tried posting a comment there but it did not take. I had wanted to point out the focus was not on a comparison of this island to Hoboken. We are a little neighborhood bedroom community. We just got our first chain drug store. No comparison. The focus was on living on the North end of Roosesvelt Island compared to Southtown.
End of story. If NJ.com wants to continue and pick on a fellow Roosevelt Island blogger he 's got two of us to deal with.
