Roosevelt Island Tram Service Cancelled During Rush Hour Due To Snow Storm, RIRA Town Hall Meeting Cancelled & Southoint Park Closed Today

RIOC Plowing Roosevelt Island's Main Street Snow
RIOC issued the following snow advisory at 3:20 PM regarding the Roosevelt Island Tram:
The Tram has canceled the rush hour schedule due to the weather and service will be intermittent until further notice.
I am also advised by Roosevelt Island Residents Association President Frank Farance that tonight's RIRA Town Hall Meeting has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for next Wednesday, February 17.

I had planned to go down to Southpoint Park today. I am sure it is beautiful with all the snow. Fortunately, before I made the trek, I asked the Public Safety Department if it is open. I was told that it is closed today. Not known yet if it will be open tomorrow.

RIOC and Roosevelt Island building managements have been doing a good job clearing the snow from the streets and pathways so far.

I don't understand why I have to learn this off this blog instead of the rioc website. Thanks for the update!

Welcome to the Beaurocracy that is New York City (and Roosevelt Island). This blog is great if you live on the island, it has all sorts of good info and the nitty gritty drama that is going on with all the powers that be. Yesterday I tried out the website that was noted on the blog, it works great for the redbus if you want to time your departure out the door. Thanks.
