Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Mother's Day Crafts For Kids 5 - 6 PM Friday May 8

Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Coordinator (RIPN) Eva Bosbach reports:
Dear RI parents,

Mother's Day is coming up this weekend and we hope you can join us for the next free event in the "Crafts with Kids" series by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network!

Our Mother's Day craft will take place this Friday, May 8, at the Senior Center, 546 Main Street. The children will be painting with acrylic paint on wooden picture frames. We will take a picture of the mother and child/ren or just the child/ren, whatever the parent or caregiver prefers. We will print the picture out while the child is painting so that you can have a picture to go in the frame as well. To round up, there will be a little story-time in the end. Please bring smogs for the children and some extra wipes.

Special thank you goes to HOPE RI Church for sponsoring the event supplies, and to Wendy Hersh for booking the room for us.

How you can get involved: We could use a few more helpers for this one so if you have time to stay the entire hour and help with the crafts, please let me know. Also please let me know if you have great theme related books for the story time or for our little kids book shelf during the event. Finally, if you have craft event ideas you would like me to include in our series, let me know! :)

Please RSVP to by Wednesday, May 6.

Looking forward to seeing you!

I get your point but in reality they hesitate to use those power, they are generally pretty out of shape, and appear to be easily intimidated.

As someone who lives over behind courtyard of 2-4 River Rd, PSD needs to go over there and clear people the f@#c out consistently. I have called multiple times after 11pm and nothing happens.

I also notice a frequent comment from residents is that all psd wants to do is write tickets and I think that because its less intimidating.

So is it wrong to push for increase of presence from local precinct so they can more actively assist PSD. This way PSD can make more arrests rather than filing incident reports.

Thats a joke, ,get hold of one of those letters and post it on this site..

I agree, we don't need the boys in blue with 9mm's blazing away..but PSD can certainly step up their you say

AshleyMcCormick said...

Thank you for making the point clearer! The fact that PSD are trained law enforcement officers doesn't make them police officers and that's a fact. Proof: the drug-dealing, noise-making, obscenity-shouting, trash-ignoring crowd has no respect for or fear of PSD, who looks the other way more often than not.

AshleyMcCormick said...

Thank you! I'm confused as to the delay in taking any action by either UA or the PSD: are they that busy that they don't find the time for a meeting? We, residents, all seem to think this is an urgent and important issue.

Rest assured -It is being handled ...

Would you really out your life in danger by stopping and arresting people everyday with no gun?

Can YA also blame them by having a standing hands off order from rioc president? Who in turn told chief McManus to do no preventive enforcement.

Basically just take report and keep it moving.

Request the activity report for the past 10 years. You will see a rapid and immediate decline for the past 2 at least.

NotMyKid said...

It's not about blazing away. What is this guy who was shooting,mactualky went on a mini rampage and there were more victims, innocent victims?

Psd can't do anything except hold their crotches.

At least give the guns to supervisors.

"Most peace officers in New York are UNARMED..."


"Some departments allow their peace officers to carry a firearm through their employment with the permission and licensing of the local police department for on duty use ONLY, such as the Co-op City Department of Public Safety and the Sea Gate Police Department. In this case, the officer can carry the firearm while on duty only, however when they go off duty, they must either give the firearm to a supervisor or fellow officer who is on duty, or lock it up in a locker at the department."

I agree that even if a PSO had been on the scene of the shooting, how could they have prevented it, since they are unarmed.

CheshireKitty said...

If the buildings had doorstations, the visitors would have to sign in and be announced.

In a complex the size of RL, there should be doorstations and tighter security.

But that does mean a substantial commitment of cash by the owner..

CheshireKitty said...

NYPD patrols could be stepped up.

CheshireKitty said...

I suppose the WIRE will run a story. There have been other shootings on RI - in 2013 there was another non-fatal shooting outside the bodega on July 4th.

CheshireKitty said...

The RIOC PSD can't do much in case there is an armed perp. Maybe there should be 24/7 NYPD presence, at least one NYPD, on RI at all times.

NotMyKid said...

Nypd can barely fill the seats in cars for regular sector patrols.

This is a very easy fix by psd training and guns. Very easy.

Let psd to do their jobs. Stop tying their hands.

That's so unnerving :( Did anyone go for the committee meeting on the 6th? How did it go? Did anyone voice out our concerns? Unfortunately I couldn't go.

CheshireKitty said...

I was there: RIRA is organizing a community meeting so NYPD, PSD and reps from all of RI's building management cos can discuss their response to the crime and receive feedback/ideas from members of the community.

♫n.i.a♀ said...

Ok thanks so much for the update! I hope there will be visible action taken to eradicate this.

I am very pleased with Island Wines and Spirits. The store has a wide selection of delicious wines from various regions at reasonable prices, so that it's possible to buy a bottle on the spur of the moment to enhance dinner -- or to order several bottles or a case to have your own wine "cellar" at home. I usually find something to complain about when it comes to Roosevelt Island retail, such as it is, but the new wine store is the best store we've ever had.

Westviewer said...

The AVAC in Westview has not worked in several weeks. Is it working in other buidings?

CheshireKitty said...

It's working in Island House.

I urge other RI-ers support this nice store.
