NYC Councilman Jimmy Vacca is out of the country on a well deserved summer vacation with his wife and his daughter. I was assured that he was not in Bermuda. Someone else we know likes to visit Bermuda.
City Island Images was told that the councilman went on a sea cruise, touring our northern neighbors in Canada. You too could be enjoying one of these cruises from NYC. The Queen Mary 2 and two Princess Cruises ships sail from NYC in 2011 and 2012. The terminal in Brooklyn is large enough to handle these mega-ships.
Our vision is to establish a popular 24/7 news and information service dedicated to implementing sustainable long-term solutions to some of our greatest challenges.
By fostering partnerships with individuals, community groups, government officials, businesses organizations, as well as nongovernmental organizations, City Island Images will build lasting systems that will change many of lives for the better.
We certainly hope that all of you are proud of what we have been able to accomplish together so far.
