Is Roosevelt Island Part of Manhattan or Queens - Daily News Thinks Queens

Image of Queens Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Park from Streetsblog

Roosevelt Island rarely receives any newspaper coverage from the three major daily New York City newspapers so I am pleasantly surprised to see that this week the Daily News covered three Roosevelt Island stories - two of news value and one a human interest story. The two news stories are of great importance for Roosevelt Islanders.

On April 1, the Daily News reported on the Town Hall meeting for the Louis Kahn memorial with an article entitled "Time Running out for FDR Memorial". We can all hope this is true. Also on April 1 was a story about Roosevelt Island resident Judy Berdy's new book celebrating the Queensboro Bridge and today there was a news article on the impact of Elliot Spitzer's resignation and replacement by David Patterson as Governor for appointing the winners of the recent election for nominees to the RIOC Board of Directors.

I think it is great that the Daily News is covering Roosevelt Island but why in the Queens section of the newspaper and not Manhattan. Roosevelt Island is part of Manhattan - isn't it.

Not that there is anything wrong with Queens - to paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld

I think Roosevelt Is land is part of Manhattan but it's so difficult to be sure, because geographically it's almost in the middle.... Anyway, the place is excellent and I think really no matter where it is.

Yes, you can do this IF your Christmas card listing has database style AND you know the best ways to team
up with Mail Merge in your word processing program. Or else, this is the drive
for my tip. Yes, it takes some time in advance the initial year, but afterward it is cake.
