NYC's New Incredible Eco-Island

The City and www.omroepgroesbeek.nl State of New York bought an old island off it's coast from the federal government for a whopping $1 in 2003. Since then, they've been struggling to turn the once dilapidated island into a tourist destination. But now, with a plan from West 8, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Rogers Marvel Architects, the Governor's Island is going to become one of New York's most interesting and greenest tourist (and local) destinations.

The park will be traveled only by pedestrians and bicyclists, and everyone will have access to a huge bank of wooden bicycles for use on the island. The designers will create a huge amount of artificial topography using fill from construction projects in the cialis australia city.  The focus of the attractions will be in local nature. A floating restaurant will serve seafood straight from the Hudson, a marine center will open the eyes of young ecogeeks to the splendor of generic viagra canadian our ocean and several rubber bubble buildings will contain botanical and aquatic research centers.

Not very Green

So, it's an island.... which means that every visitor will have to arrive by boat. I hope those boats are yachts or powered by solar cells, otherwise there will be a lot of pollution just to ship thousands/hundreds of thousands/millions of people to this 'green' theme park. Maybe kayaks could be provided and people could paddle across themselves....

We are not so sure that a non-economical eco-Island - a gigantic black hole - is going to make it despite all the press releases. Our economically self-sustaining Tolerance Park (i.e., Tolerance Island) is more likely the ultimate winner. It takes some time as you can see on http://216.187.52.48/gi/giproject.pdf

Wow. That's really amazing. Can't wait to see more.

However, it seems like it's sort of the Disney World of the Green Trend. Which.... could be for good or ill...

It will have to be watched closely.

Tolerance Island? Sounds like the usual lot of boring American rederic. yea liberty, woohoo name a park after it, call it "tolerance" this time. Won't change the buy levitra generic fact that internationally the US is far from tolerant and that our every day "liberties" are continually being snatched up from us. Yes the US has a history of freedom and cost of levitra tolerance but our current foothold in the world is how can i buy levitra in canada far from the radical thinkers who started this nation.

well i mean it is enriching the idea that this eco friendly things are good but it seems a little in a way ironic. if the people are promoting being green then y r they making people come across on a ferry!?!?! wats up with tht? then its just hurting more of alternatives to cialis the Earth by leaving behind our carbon foot print. why not just fix a part of new york, save the island for habitat to animals (they need homes to) and still have the same effect? stupid yet smart. however im not goin til they change the ferry thing. (=

PEACE!
