I've been out of town for a week and came back to see a massive tree limb torn away from one of the maple trees on the Southtown lawn near the subway station. Does anyone know what happened?...The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) advised yesterday that the damaged Roosevelt Island Southtown Maple Tree
is being cut down today.
According to RIOC, on:
Here's what the damaged tree looked likeThursday June 12, contractors will remove a damaged tree located to the west of 465 Main Street. Main Street and the adjacent sidewalk will be closed to pedestrians and traffic between 475 Main Street and 455 Main Street from 8 AM and 2 PM. Signs and workers will be posted to redirect direct foot and vehicle traffic.

I asked RIOC if they knew what caused the damage to the tree. Have not heard back yet but will update if any new information.
