New York City is an interesting town. Oh, sure, you’ve got the sprawl and awe-inspiring vistas of Times Square; however, then you’ve got some of the parts of the city that aren’t so pretty. One of those places would be the aptly named Rat Island.
Now, mind you, there aren’t any actual rats on the island itself, but more a gigantic amount of rocks.
Well, now it’s time for that pile of rocks to be renamed into something else! A New Yorker has purchased the island for a mere 160 grand. The owner, Alex Schibli, can do whatever he likes with the land mass. We’d suggest naming it something other than Rat Island, if only to take back that horrid name from the animals. Symbolic victories can count just as much as physical ones at times.
