Memo to Guvs Island Lady: Not Just ‘Little Boys’ Like Demolitions


Did you know that not only is this the last weekend that Governors Island is open to the public but also that they’re demolishing ten buildings there today to create more parkland and you can go there and watch the destruction? That way “all the little boys” who love it when big buildings implode and fall can come and watch, says Leslie Koch, who seems to run the island’s activities for the public. Leslie, girls like this stuff too. Can’t you see a young Sarah Palin jumping up and down with glee watching this, the tail on her raccoon cap bobbing and her toy rifle jangling on its strap? Anyway, we’re bummed that the island’s closing this weekend, especially because we vowed back in June we’d finally make it there this summer. Next year on Governors Island! [Downtown Express]
