British Comedian Tweets Never Met A New Yorker Bragging To Be From Roosevelt Island - Residents Respond We're Few But Many Of Us Love It
Comedian Chris Williams tweeted today that he never met a NY'er bragging about living on Roosevelt Island, though he says we do have a cool cable car.
@Rooseveltisland people go on how they are from Brooklyn etc..but I haven't meet anyone who brags about RI. You have a cool Cable Car!The Roosevelt Island Twitterverse quickly responded.

@thatbritguynyc @rooseveltisland that's a statistical bias. You haven't met many people from RI because we're few. Many of us love it!

@notSoJunkDNA @Rooseveltisland @thatbritguynyc RI has only been residential for 30 or 35 years and so little tradition (yet) of lving there.

@thatbritguynyc @Rooseveltisland RIers are less insufferable than the people who insist you know how cool they are b/c they live in Bklyn.UPDATE 9:40 PM:

@notSoJunkDNA @thatbritguynyc @Rooseveltisland - We are very few, and it is a great place to live! We do need better restaurants though.
