An Oasis in New York City - Roosevelt Island Profiled on NY!

Roosevelt Island was profiled on my favorite local TV news channel, NY1, being described as:
an oasis in the middle of the big city.
But nothing is as unique as the view – Manhattan to the west and Queens to the east. From Lighthouse Park on the northern tip of the Island, you can also see the Bronx. From the other end in South Point Park you’ll find a 360-degree view that includes the United Nations and Empire State building:
Unfortunately, the report failed to mention that the wonderful 360 degree views are in danger of being destroyed if that boondoggle of a memorial to Louis Kahn , disguised as a FDR memorial, is ever built at Southpoint Park.

“It’s a good place to fish,” says Garces. “I catch big fish here.”

And, says Garces, the fish are good enough to eat.
I don't know about eating the fish though. Good luck with that.
