No Rocketship Needed To Get Off Roosevelt Island This Weekend - F Train Service To And From Manhattan Again This Weekend Says MTA

Good news. A Rocketship is not needed to get off Roosevelt Island this weekend.

Oh, that? They closed the Roosevelt Island F stop for repairs this weekend.
According to the MTA Weekender, there will be Roosevelt Island F train service

to and from Manhattan this weekend.

Kudos go to Paul Arnold, a visitor to Roosevelt Island from Indiana, for suggesting the caption to New Yorker Magazine cartoon at top which captures Roosevelt Island residents F train weekend frustrations.

Mr Arnold experienced Roosevelt Island weekend F train disruptions while staying with a friend who lives here. Mr. Arnold explained to his Roosevelt Island friend:
Your little chunk of paradise is on my mind just now, I guess. This is my entry for the NYorker caption contest.
Mr. Arnold submitted the caption to the New Yorker Cartoon Contest in July but did not win.
