Not on My Island


Grand Resorts is dead.  Thanks a lot, FMB leaders and NIMBY’s!  Your voices united: “NO, not on MY island!”

We had an opportunity to work with Mr. Torgerson and build something great, but your negativity blew it.

We could have had tens of millions of dollars of investment in our community:

  • Boardwalk by the beach
  • Times Square expanded four-fold
  • Escalators to safely carry pedestrians over the boulevard and alleviate traffic

Now we can keep the awesome portable toilets at Crescent Beach.

We can look forward to a few new private hotels up on stilts that will have minimal benefit to the community.

We will remember all you great visionaries when a storm surge destroys Times Square.
