George Gurley loves the concept of Roosevelt Island so much he thinks they should create 20 more of them and believes someone may steal his idea and make a fortune. For the entire 4 page article link HERE.
DR. SELMAN: It seems like moving to Roosevelt Island was a big upgrade.
GEORGE: I come into Manhattan every three days, and it’s such a culture shock. The other day I couldn’t believe all the people, and someone walked by me on his cell phone jabbering away like an idiot, like a savage beast, and it’s like, I can’t believe I used to live there. They should make more islands around Manhattan. Can’t you make islands these days? Don’t they do that in Dubai? They should make another 20 Roosevelt Islands around Manhattan. Watch someone steal this idea and make trillions.
HILLY: One of the things that I love about Roosevelt Island is coming home after a long day of work and to have—
DR. SELMAN: And to have the apartment a mess and George in his pajamas.
GEORGE: I guess one of my biggest problem is, I don’t have a social life there. Really wish I knew a couple people I can say hi to, even the local pot dealer—then I’ve got someone to say hi to.
HILLY: Why don’t you put a notice up, on the message board?
GEORGE: Just say, ‘I’m lonely, need a pal’?
HILLY: Just be like, ‘I work at home, I’m looking for someone who would be willing to play the occasional spur-of-the-moment tennis or pool.’ What’s wrong with that?
