Roosevelt Island @NYPD114Pct Build the Block meeting tonight - come discuss your concerns. 25 people social distancing limit. http://rooseveltislander.blogspot.com/2020/08/youre-invited-to-nypd-114-precinct.html
Hi all! I hope its okay that I share a post of some outdoor classes that I am starting on behalf of Gugu Gaga Gymboree. Although the business was scheduled to open its doors this summer, we havent been able to do that because of Covid-19. However, we figured we can bring the fun to a safe outdoor space as long as we practice all safety measures. I hope you'll try out the classes and soon give our business a visit.
I'm trying to better understand the posters around talking about 320 trees being cut down in Southpoint Park to make way for more walking paths. There seems to be plenty paths down there already. Do you have more information on this plan?
Please join in this important town hall on Thursday evening about Coler and Covid, with the electives as well as Coler representatives. Please show them that we care about our fellow islanders in the hospital. Register for the link https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ir7W-0-FSi-cjw50pSI39w
Cool 😎
I know some people are upset about the closing of Southpoint but I have to say- I took a walk last Saturday in that nice weather and at least 30 ( i lost count after 20) joggers ran past me without any face covering. Some were running in the middle of the street- so ok.... I saw one with a facemark at her throat that she lifted up when near someone-so ok.... but the rest just had nothing. A few ran past me no farther than 2-3 feet...one even turned and laughed at me when I yelled at him to either stay away or wear a mask.. There were 7 people who were jogging with face masks....JUST 7...inexcusable. I'm sorry, but I blame you unmasked joggers for my loss of a place to walk. I have many friends who regularly jog with a mask on and they aren't passing out for want of air, so NO EXCUSES!

Hello Island Friends! I am looking for volunteers who can make drop-offs to Island Seniors Monday through Friday from 9a-10:30a; and on Saturdays from 11:00a-1:00p The Island Senior Center closed its doors due to the Corona Pandemic about two weeks ago. Many of our elderly and disabled depended on the center for their weekly meals and socialization. The Roosevelt Island Disabled Association and Mosaic (Hope) Roosevelt Island Church have joined forces to provide weekly breakfast meals, bags of food and fresh produce on Saturdays to serve about 100-125 seniors and disabled community members. Please reach out to myself or Wendy Hersh if you're available to assist! First breakfast drop starts tomorrow, April 6th. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!
