Roosevelt Island Christmas Trees On Sale Saturday At Motorgate Plaza and Tree Lighting Ceremony Tonight 7 PM At Blackwell Plaza

A Roosevelt Island resident asked yesterday:
Do you know if cub scouts r selling Christmas trees this year on R I?
By coincidence, after receiving the question I saw the Roosevelt Island Boy Scout Troop Leader and asked him that question. He told me that yes, the Boy Scouts will be selling Christmas Trees starting this Saturday in their usual spot  at Motorgate Plaza.

Christmas Trees are already being sold by street vendors near the Tram including this one on Second Avenue and 61 Street.

Also, don't forget Santa Claus will be arriving tonight

If anybody is interested in buying a cheaper tree have a look at the place across from Costco. $20 for any tree. I haven't looked, yet, but will definitely do this week.
