Reported last September that:
... Flooding at the Cultural Center in Roosevelt Landings last July forced the RIJC and Main Street Theater & Dance Alliance to seek out temporary space until the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) and/or Urban American returns the space to a clean and safe condition (Urban American is the the landlord for Roosevelt Landings)...

During the November 7 Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Meeting Public Session, the Main Street Theater & Dance Alliance (MST&DA) Board of Directors President Nina Wintringham reported that as far as she can tell, no repairs have yet been made to the premises and they are unable to use their damaged space although MST&DA has found temporary space at other Roosevelt Island locations.
A meeting with the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) is scheduled for today to discuss the matter added Ms. Wintringham.
I have asked RIOC for a comment on the situation and will update if answer is received.
Here's what Ms Wintringham had to say during the RIRA Public Session.
More on the flooding at the Theater and Jewish Congregation from earlier post.

We had a productive meeting today with the Main Street Theater Group and Jewish Congregation. We look forward to working collaboratively with both groups in our continuing efforts to restore the premises.I replied:
Thank you for the reply.No reply from RIOC yet.
Can RIOC describe what efforts are being undertaken to restore the premises?
