Thanks "Mr. Roosevelt Islander" for the fine coverage of the Hack Roosevelt Island activities. Further thanks to Ms Swanson, Ms Levitt, Mr. Smith, MBA'er Takaki, and Council Member Kallos for their support. I am sure the PS 217 IS staff and students as well as Ms Green and others at the Senior Center enjoyed it all. A slight apology for the limited number of folks named as it required many others to make this happen for those who benefitted from the program. I look forward to Cornell's commitments and substantive contributions to this lovely Roosevelt Island continuing well beyond this program. By the way, how do I get one of those "Hack Roosevelt Island" t-shirts?
