Longtime City Islander “mussel sucker” Virginia Gallagher, who is best known on City Island for her devotion to the retirees at Pilot Cove Manor, fell down there, broke her hip, was rushed and operated at Jacobi Hospital. fellhttp://www.nychealthandhospitals.org/jacobi/?nycGovRedirect
Virginia tells CITY IMAGES that she is in a lot of pain but wants to go home. Virginia is and has always been a real trooper. She took over the Presidency of the City Island Senior Citizens Residence, which had been trying for some time to build senior citizen housing on City Island.
After patience and determination, she secured Federal and State funding to purchase the property next to Consolidated Shipyard and made Pilot Cove Manor a reality back in 1981.
Her management and people skills have improved the quality of life for countless individuals. She is praying and we invite all of you to join us in wishing her all the best.
