Just hope that it doesn't rain.
UPDATE - It didn't rain last night and the Roosevelt Island Public Viewing of the Olympics Opening Ceremony was a wonderful event. The Riverwalk Commons was full of lots of people enjoying the evening. Roosevelt Island resident Jonathan Kalkin shares this photo of the evening.
Good job by RIOC Director Margie Smith in suggesting the idea and RIOC Staff in implementing on short notice.
