Subject: Re: Islands
Hi Ziners,

In 1966, on our first trip camping across the U.S., we arrived in the California to see the following ad on several billboards:

Visit the islands: Manhattan, Staten, Fire and Long

I don't remember which airline ran the ad, but it has stuck with me ever since. I grew up on Manhattan Island. There is so much to see, do and eat there, that I guess it is my favorite. However, since Mayor Bloomberg has made it impossible to park there and the public transit from my area is not that great, we don't go into the city nearly as much as we used to.
