Sorry if you don't like it if people "bitch" (I prefer the word reminisce) about how the Island has gone down hill since we left. But whether you admit it or not, it has. I grew up as the island was growing in the fifties,sixties and early seventies. I remember how it was before the bridge and saw what it became after. I miss the before. Every time I'm on the Island, it gets more congested, not only with people and cars, but with houses. Is there an empty lot left anywhere on the north shore? Beautiful old houses are torn down and a dozen condos put up in its place. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any zoning regulations so the Island will continue to go down hill and you'll be the one here bitching in a few years.
