Manhattan Park Gives RIOC Permission to Install New Roosevelt Island Red Bus Bench At 10 River Road - You Can Sit On It Today

Ever since the Roosevelt Island Southbound Red Bus Route stop was moved across the street from Gristedes which had a bench, to 10 River Road without a bench, residents have asked for a bench to be installed at 10 River Road.

As reported October 28:

... To date, Manhattan Park refuses to allow a Red Bus bench to be installed on Main Street in front of 10 River Road said RIOC's Cy Opperman. Ms Smith suggested having Roosevelt Island Seniors wait for Red Bus in the 10 River Road lobby if Manhattan Park will not allow a bench outside the building....
Good new today for those that need or wish to sit while waiting for the Red Bus after shopping at Gristedes.
