Governor's Island vs. Davids Island
My former colleague Noreen O'Donnell visits Governor's Island and then asks in the Journal News why Davids Island, in Long Island Sound, is so decrepit in comparison. She quotes our friend Barbara Davis:
"What they're doing that didn't happen on Davids Island is getting people out there to understand it, appreciate it and therefore protect it," said Barbara Davis, New Rochelle's historian. "That's what we were missing. Once it closed, it was abandoned, there was no access and it was lost to public consciousness."
Read the whole thing. Excellent job, Noreen.
