Cold, Frigid NYC Temperatures Bring East River Ice Underneath Roosevelt Island Tram And Kid Has Fun In Snow Hitting Our Slope
It's cold outside today. Right now the temperature is 12 degrees but with wind chill it feels like -6.
It's so cold that ice is heading up the East River passing Roosevelt Island today. The Roosevelt Island Twitterverse shows the East River ice underneath the Queensboro Bridge and passing shadow of the Tram yesterday.
I've never seen ice this far up the East River #brrr @Rooseveltisland pic.twitter.com/CwM4ZykehZDespite the frigid temperatures, a young Roosevelt Islander had fun in the snow by hitting our slope.
