NY Daily News Reports On Roosevelt Islanders Falling And Slipping On Icy Sidewalk At F Train Subway Entrance Following Snowstorm
As previously reported, the Roosevelt Island streets and sidewalks were mostly shoveled and plowed following last week's snowstorm except for the area next to the Rivercross Lawn.

Commenting on that post, reader rilander noted today an article in the NY Daily News which shows photos taken by a Reuters photographer of people slipping and falling yesterday on the frozen ice at the Roosevelt Island F Train Subway entrance, another area that was not sufficiently shoveled. According to rilander:
Sure enough, since the sidewalk on the west channel outside the train station was not completely and properly shoveled, it iced over and someone fell:According to Reuters:
A woman falls while slipping on ice during freezing rain on Roosevelt Island, a borough of Manhattan, in New York January 5, 2014.

Mark Lyon commenting on the photo asks:
That's an excellent photo, but I have to wonder if the cameraman should have warned people about that icy patch.and a Wall Street Journal editor tweets:
Can someone get the story behind the great Reuters photo of a woman falling on ice on Roosevelt Island? http://t.co/Pn6KQ2SnVWDoes anybody know the story behind these photos?
