Roosevelt Island Tram On Steroids Speeding Across East River - How About Extending The Tram To Queens Suggests Silvercup Studio Owner, Ask Cornell During Tomorrow Night's CB 8 Task Force Meeting

Have you ever wished that the Roosevelt Island Tram would speed up a bit on its trip across the East River? Your wish is now granted.

How about extending the Roosevelt Island Tram to Queens? During a meeting of the Long Island City Partnership, Alan Suna of Silvercup Studios asked that very question to George Fertitta, President of NYC & Company. According to the Queens Gazette:
... At question time, Alan Suna of Silvercup Studios asked Fertitta if he knew how many passengers the Roosevelt Island Tram carried annually. Fertitta said he couldn’t answer the question at the moment but could find out. Suna called the tram “iconic” and said he would like to see it extended from Roosevelt Island to Queens, which would allow traffic back and forth to the Cornell/Technion science campus when it is built at the south end of the island. Fertitta found that idea “cool” and quickly made reference to the ferries that have come into existence fairly recently, using the East River shoreline in Queens as a docking point to and from the other boroughs. He said that venture is “unbelievably successful”. The bike share project that is near launching in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn will, among other things, be a “tremendous tourist opportunity”....
Cornell will be presenting its latest plans for the Roosevelt Island Cornell Technion technology campus tomorrow night during Community Board 8 Task Force meeting to be held at the Seniors Center (546 Main Street). Perhaps one of the transportation items for Cornell to consider is building a Tram extension to Queens.

As reported in this previous post, the answer to Mr. Suna's question on Roosevelt Island Tram ridership statistics for 2011 is: 
... RIOC is excited to announce that a record 2,109,878 people rode our Tram in 2011, the first full year since the Tramway modernization project was completed. That’s over 5,700 riders per day!...
The Roosevelt Island Tram is more than just for transportation - it's also a ride as Jerry Seinfeld explained in 1977.

A tram to silvercup/queensboro plaza or somewhere near the Vernon Blvd 7 train stop would go a long way toward rounding out our transportation options.

The girl would not relent about the price and in short time the GI walked away spewing epitaphs of his disdain for what the called "slopes". The biggest obstacle could be regulatory concerns.  The program is very user friendly and makes it easy to lay out work. Another problem was that certain Ebay buyers were frauds, and the longer I sold to that market, the more of them there were. The preferred coin for the miners was the silver dollar and mintages went through the 1 million mark in 1871 and 1872.
