Regular Roosevelt Island F Train and Tramway Service This Weekend Plus Things To Do

For those who forgot what it is like to ride on the tram,here is a You Tube Video

The Roosevelt Island Tram has been up and running since Wednesday night and will be available for normal service this weekend. Hurray. Also the MTA is reporting regular Roosevelt Island F train service to and from Manhattan for the weekend as well. Double Hurray. Now the MTA needs to get their act together and finally fix the broken Roosevelt Island subway escalators so that they work on a regular basis.

There are plenty of things to do this weekend including the start of the Roosevelt Island Outdoor Movie series on Saturday showing the Neverending Story, Roosevelt Island's RIVAA gallery will be showing a film about the sounds that Roosevelt Island makes called A Necessary Music on Saturday night and the Coney Island Mermaid Parade is set for Saturday afternoon. For more ideas on things to do check out Newyorkology or the NY Times.
