Why we come here Charlie Joseph CharlieJ Some of us are often asking why we come here. Displaced Staten Islanders and current residents alike. Many of us (including me) have tried to explain it, and in so doing, define 'nostalgia'.

Every once in a while the turn of a phrase catches my mind's eye as being particularly appropriate to something. This morning I came on one that seems to explain why we come here.

It brings back memories. Memories that are "Too beautiful to be true, but too true to be forgotten."
