Lights Out For 3 Weeks At Roosevelt Island Octagon Tennis Court For RITA Lessons - Why Is Tennis Court Fence Covered Blocking Views Of Play?

Received the following message from a Roosevelt Island tennis player on Saturday:
For more than 3 weeks, TWO lights are out on tennis court no 4, the one used by RITA for tennis lessons in the evening.

I reported this issue TWICE on SeeClickFix, it was acknowledged by RIOC engineering, than closed with the answer that the lights will be replaces the week of 8/20.

The week is now over, the lights were NOT replaced.

This is NOT acceptable, and RIOC should be told that. Not to mention this year price increase for the tennis courts permits.
RITA is the Roosevelt Island Tennis Association. The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) has more information on Octagon Tennis courts at their web site.

Does anybody know why the fence surrounding the public tennis court is covered blocking anyone from watching those playing?

That's not the case for the baseball or soccer fields, why the tennis court?

Those are windscreens, used to block the wind & make playing easier. The fact that windscreens block the view of the courts from the outside is simply a side effect of windscreen design. We're lucky to have windscreens b/c they make playing much easier on windy days.

It shields the wind. Wind Screens!

In Japan, it is called mugicha, in China, dmich and, in Korea, boricha. These devices are practically plug-and-play and may be managed by using remote controls. If your dryer is electric, meaning it uses electricity instead of flame to produce heat, step one is to verify that the breaker to the dryer's electrical circuit is fully on. Encased in a titanium chassis, the gaggia titanium espresso coffee machine is truly made to last.
