Roosevelt Island

"Unfortunately there are still people in other areas who regard New York City not as a part of the United States, but as a sort of excrescence fastened to our Eastern shore and peopled by the less venturesome waves of foreigners who failed to go West to the genuine American frontier."
Robert Moses, Working for the People: Promise and Performance in Public Service
