Yeah. But it would be a package deal with Staten Island… And NJ doesn’t want that


The waters are still disputed though and every couple of years some water warfare is engaged by the two parties. These “battles” aren’t officially condoned by either side and almost never have any casualties resulting from direct attacks. However the “patriots” of each side do succumb to drowning, heart failure and alcohol poisoning during these skirmishes


I still regret my decision to visit that statue.


We need to start adding on to Manhattan and other islands. The housing crisis will not solve it self. This is the only way it will work.
