Scenes From Another Roosevelt Island Snowy Day This Morning - It's Beautiful Says Resident Walking On Main Street


Walking


and shoveling


Roosevelt Island's Main Street at 10 AM this morning.



How was your commute to work or school today?

UPDATE 1 PM - Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Department Director Jack McManus shares this advisory from the NYC Office Of Emergency Management (OEM):
OEM ISSUES TRAVEL ADVISORY FOR Thursday and Friday

For Motorists
If you must drive a vehicle, monitor weather and traffic reports for the latest road conditions. Use mass transportation whenever possible.
Use major streets or highways for travel whenever possible as these roadways will be cleared first.
Drive slowly. Vehicles, including those with 4-wheel drive, take longer to stop on snow and ice than on dry pavement.
Keep the name and phone number of at least one local towing service in your car in case you break down or become stuck in the snow.
If you get stuck on the road stay with your car and contact a towing company.

For Pedestrians
Exercise caution and avoid slippery surfaces; some ice may not be visible.
Wear layers including a hat, gloves and scarf to stay protected from the cold. And, keep clothes and shoes dry.
Keep fingertips, earlobes, and noses covered if you go outside.
Have heightened awareness of cars, particularly when approaching or crossing intersections.

Tips for Staying Warm
Exposure to cold can cause life-threatening health conditions. Avoid serious conditions such as frostbite and hypothermia, by keeping warm.
Wear a hat, hood, and scarf.
Wear layers, as they provide better insulation and warmth.
Keep fingertips, earlobes, and noses covered if you go outside.
Keep clothing dry; if a layer becomes wet, remove it.

Sincerely,

Roosevelt Island Operating Corp Advisories Group

No Bill right now people are focused on ski houses. We start thinking about the summer in March.

I recommend you check out Whalebone Village at 147 Boatheader’s Lane, EH, NY 11937. They have one, two and three-bedroom units, accept section 8 and allow dogs.

Bill Blass said...

Thanks. I am looking for something on the beach.I am willing to walk to the beach as long as its less than one block I want it from may 26 to labor day. Its great that they take sec.8. I Will be checking it out

Bill Blass said...

See if you can find me something in south Hampton or sag harbor.as I want to enjoy the life of a rich hipster for the summer.thanks

KTG said...

Bill You have to keep up with the times Hipsters are really on Fire Island or Montauk. Sag Harbor & Hamptons are more an older crowd.


You may want to think about the Cape or Nantucket.

Bill Blass said...

Well .where are the hipsters from south town and octagon. Renting this summer.

KTG said...

There are no hipsters in either building, they rent in Bushwick & Greenpoint feel free to join them there

KTG said...

But personally I prefer a destination vacation to a summer rental. We went to Tuscany & the Italian Riviera last year.

Bill Blass said...

Really. Give me a little idea of what your incomr is .

Bill Blass said...

I was watching this program on cnbc and there was a black guy named Goldberg.really

Bill Blass said...

Mark you are from down south. So can you please tell me why is it that every time I watch the jerry Springer show when there are white woman from down south they are always frighing over a black guy. But i never see black woman frighing over a white guy.can you tell me why

KTG said...

not enough

KTG said...

same as everyone's

Westviewer said...

KTG, you are using "hipster" in the normal sense. BB has his own unique definition -- anyone he perceives has more money than he does, so he can resent them.

Westviewer said...

I'm sure that by BB's standards, the residents are rich hipsters.

CheshireKitty said...

Whoopee-do!!

CheshireKitty said...

Naah.. I imagine Hawaii is more their speed. Or Fiji.

CheshireKitty said...

That's pretty good Mark. Do you get a discount renting there for plugging the fleabag place?

CheshireKitty said...

Hahaha... we can only wonder how "great" Mark's recommendation to BB is.. probably a dank, 50s motel, complete with a Bates-like proprietor.

CheshireKitty said...

Obviously, they have no taste. White guys are just as filling as black guys - plus they usually pay their own restaurant tabs.

CheshireKitty said...

No - you need a place that was destroyed by Sandy. There, you'll find the real deals this summer..

CheshireKitty said...

KTG - I just don't see BB on Fire Is. The fun folks there might find him too much of a drag.

Bill Blass said...

Well do you know any black people with the name Goldberg.really I can understand rufus wilson but not Goldberg

CheshireKitty said...

Indeed - now with de Blasio being Mayor, they're probably really circumspect about their summer plans, so as not to appear *too* affluent! Maybe they're all making plans to move to Jersey or Connecticut or even somewhere else in NYS other than the 5 boroughs before the tax on the wealthy kicks in.

CheshireKitty said...

Hear that BB? KTG suggests you rent a closet in the newly-hip sections of Brooklyn since that's all folks like you could afford to rent there.

CheshireKitty said...

Normal "hipster"? Isn't that a contradiction?

CheshireKitty said...

Just find anyplace that's in turmoil such as the Ukraine or Thailand and go there. You'll undoubtedly get special deals on airfare/hotel and also be treated to non-stop live theater in-the-round!

CheshireKitty said...

I bet. Lemme guess: 100K?
