The Roosevelt Island Explorers report:

We have another large-scale project for the Fall for Arts this Saturday – building vehicles that take us to/from/around RI today, and will try to invent some new ones for the future (the festivals theme is – celebration of RI history & future)…

All that from cardboard boxes (if you remember, we had built the Renaissance City last year)
Here's the cardboard box Roosevelt Island Explorers Renaissance City from 2014 Fall For Arts Festival at Southpoint Park.

The Roosevelt Island Historical Society (RIHS) is seeking volunteers to help out at the Fall For Arts Festival.

The 2015 Roosevelt Island Fall For Arts Festival was postponed from last Saturday to October 10 due to rain.
