Rosslyn similar to Shinagawa, but special and unique
more like Manhattan or more like San Francisco, the leading vote-getter is the write-in candidate "other." Among the write-in selections are Buffalo, Newark (New Jersey), Des Moines, Lima, and Rockville (Maryland). The diversity of these write-ins suggests Rosslyn's cosmopolitan ambiance. One voter wrote in "stalinist Russia," evidently recognizing that Teddy Roosevelt Island is part of Rosslyn. Another voter insightfully wrote in Shinagawa, a suburb of Tokyo pictured above. The similarities in deeply reflective buildings are obvious. But the most common write-in, with a full ten instances, was "Rosslyn." As these voters indicated, Rosslyn is unique, special, and truly beyond comparison.
