The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) communications team issued a Parking Advisory last night and earlier today of no traffic or parking south of the Roosevelt Island Tram Station tomorrow morning. According to RIOC:
Please be advised that the East and West Roads
south of the Tram Plaza turnaround will be closed to traffic and parking on
Thursday, April 22nd from 6:30 AM to 9:30 AM. These areas include:
- N. Loop Rd.
- W. Loop Rd.
- S. Loop Rd.
- E. Loop Rd.
- Cornell Tech Parking Garage
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your
patience and cooperation.
Several residents asked about the reason for the advisory and I asked RIOC yesterday. No response.
This morning, I learned from a very reliable source that one of the morning TV shows, believed to be NBC Today Show, is broadcasting live tomorrow morning from the Roosevelt Island Cherry Tree Blossom Grove next to Cornell Tech.
I asked RIOC for confirmation of the Today Show live broadcast from Roosevelt Island tomorrow but have not received any response yet.
Will update when more info becomes available.
