NYT: Letter to Editor - Nov 6, 2007

In response to yesterday's New York Times editorial that there isn't much to do on Roosevelt island the below letter was submitted and published today:

The View From Roosevelt I.

There’s more to Roosevelt Island than a tram ride to and fro.

There’s a quiet East River walk with spectacular views of Manhattan, highlighted by the United Nations and arresting river traffic.

A historic lighthouse opposite Gracie Mansion on the north end and preening cormorants on a rocky island on the south end. Traffic sounds are distant.

Occasionally there are lovers by the river railing. Seagulls seem tamer. And on a sunny morning Manhattan seems marvelously manageable.

Thank you Robert! Why we did not write ourselves I cannot say but I am sure glad you did.
