Why are you promoting this? Because he owns a store on the Island that took him more than 20 years to renovate and change his pricing scam only after he would have lost his lease? Sorry, don't get it.

He's a Roosevelt Island business owner with an interesting radio show discussing important issues. I would do the same thing for any other Roosevelt Island resident, business owner, or stakeholder.

I also thing it is entertaining.

Huh? He happens to have a store (one of hundreds in NYC) on Roosevelt Island and that makes him a "Roosevelt Island business owner"? Would you do the same for Nigel Travis, the CEO of Dunkin' Donuts? Just saying.

Yes, Catsimatidis is a Roosevelt Island business owner for many years and is directly involved in the management of the Roosevelt Island Gristedes (one of about 30) which has improved alot since the 2013 renovation.

Dunkin Donuts does not have a store on Roosevelt Island but if Howard Schultz, the owner of Starbucks, had a personal involvement with the Roosevelt Island Starbucks, and had an interesting radio show, I would certainly do the same thing.
