All 8 Roosevelt Island F Train Subway Station Escalators Out Of Service This Afternoon For Approximately 90 Minutes - Elevator Working But That's Alot Of Stairs To Climb

Earlier this afternoon, all of the Roosevelt Island F Train subway station elevators

were out of service

The MTA Escalator crew was dispatched to Roosevelt Island

and service from platform to street level was restored after approximately 90 minutes.

2 escalators

are currently out of service.

According to Wikipedia, the Roosevelt Island F Train subway station:
... is the fourth-deepest station in the New York City Subway at about 100 feet (30 m) below street level (approximately 10 stories deep) behind 34th Street–Hudson Yards, 190th Street, and 191st Street stations, also in Manhattan
That's alot of stairs to climb.
