Nantucket and Manhattan are both small islands (Nantucket is 4 times bigger, believe it or not). And we have many of the same problems, but on a different scale, of course. Transportation is always an issue. Parking is never easy unless it is incredibly expensive. People have trouble finding affordable housing. And, perhaps most importantly, the trash and sewage issues are ones for which we need the best thinking and smart people working every day for the sake of our own health and that of the environment. Here’s a great episode of the podcast Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin called “Brilliant Minds of Trash and Sewage” that we can all learn from, even if we live on an island without a single skyscraper.
