I noticed that renovations appear to be starting at the Roosevelt Island Gristedes supermarket this week
so asked Gristedes owner John Catsimatidis:
what is the latest status on the renovation of the Roosevelt Island Gristedes? When will it begin and what changes are being made?Mr. Catsimatidis replied:
I understand that the entrance will be moved from the side beneath the garage to Main Street near the Post Office entrance. Is that true?
Paperwork all signed and submitted to the building dept for permits. Due to hurricane a little behindadding:
Entrance moved correctReported last month that a representative from Main Street Master Leaseholder Hudson Related told me that:
New deli and produce
... Gristedes will soon be undergoing their promised and long awaited complete store renovation. Included in the renovation will be moving the gloomy and depressing store entrance from beneath the Motorgate RampI also asked Hudson Related's David Kramer for an update on Main Street retail stores. Mr. Kramer replied:
to the light and brightness of Main Street next to the Post Office.
Interestingly, the suggestion to move the Gristedes entrance came from Roosevelt Island resident Deborah Beck during March 12 Town Hall Meeting with Gristedes owner John Catsimatidis...
We have 3-4 pending negotiations. The ice cream store is almost complete, which will be followed by the natural foods market and then the wine store. Trellis is developing their renovation plans.

Also, here's recent interview of Gristedes owner John Catsimatidis from the Stoler Report.
Mr. Catsimatidis talks about Roosevelt Island at the 12 minute 30 second mark. He says the Roosevelt Island Tram "never really worked right".
Not sure what he meant by that.
