Gallagher Hospitalized


Longtime City Islander “mussel sucker” Virginia Gallagher, who is best known on City Island for her devotion to the retirees at Pilot Cove Manor, fell down there, broke her hip, was rushed and operated at Jacobi Hospital. fellhttp://www.nychealthandhospitals.org/jacobi/?nycGovRedirect

Virginia tells CITY IMAGES that she is in a lot of pain but wants to go home. Virginia is and has always been a real trooper. She took over the Presidency of the City Island Senior Citizens Residence, which had been trying for some time to build senior citizen housing on City Island.
