Roosevelt Island Transportation Meeting Tomorrow at Community Planning Board 8

There will be a joint meeting Tomorrow night of Community Planning Board 8's Roosevelt Island and Transportation Committees concerning Roosevelt Island transportation issues including the F train subway service, Tram renovation, ferry service and proposed pedestrian access to Queensboro Bridge from Roosevelt Island. I hope they also look into the horrible state of the Roosevelt Island subway escalators as well!

Roosevelt Island 360 has some thoughts on topic, particularly on access to Queensboro Bridge.
