Roosevelt Island is a place of unspeakable evil.

It is a place where men, over time, have done terrible things. The place itself is not evil. What is frankly missing is a better history that ensures we don't forget what was done here; lest we fail to ensure other such places do not come into existence.

you inspired me to look up Roosevelt and was shocked to see that one of my favorites (Mae West) was in jail there for 8 days. i was outraged!

I'm glad my shot helped motivate you to check. That's a purpose in itself. Thank you.
