on June 13 as well, from 9 AM - 2 PM.

Clinton campaign officials tell me they do not anticipate their event, taking place at the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, interfering with Roosevelt Island Day taking place in the middle of Roosevelt Island. They are expecting crowds of several thousand people.

As of today, campaign officials say there are no plans for Ms. Clinton to attend Roosevelt Island Day or visit any area other than the FDR Four Freedoms Park.
