According to the MTA there will be regular F train service to and from Roosevelt Island this weekend and RIOC reports no interruptions in Tram service either.

Looking for things to do this weekend? Remember Roosevelt Island's Southpoint Park was deemed one the best places for group outings and picnics by Time Out New York, so try it out!

Or you can take a ride in an aerial balloon high above Central Park. Hey, maybe we can use aerial balloons to replace the Tram when it goes out of service next year undergoing its modernization program.

Here's a list of other things to do in New York City the weekend from NY Times Urban Eye, NewYorkology and the New York Post weekend calendar.
