    Gorgeous day. Crowds,bikes,etc. Having to squeeze they a tiny gate while the large one remains locked? Really?

    So are the barricades a suggestion or a rule? If the former, please remove the eyesores. If the latter please enforce!
  • Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge & East 60th Street & Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge Exit & 2nd Avenue New York, NY 10022, USA - City Council District 5
    9:15 pm, one tram running, next tram still 8 minutes away, people still packing in behind me. Why can't 2 trams be running? PLEASE EXTEND "RUSH HOUR"!!!!

    625-631 West Road New York, NY 10044, USA - Roosevelt Island
    Red bus way too crowded. Need to add buses in the evening to service both crowds coming off subway as well as tram.

    Please work on the waiting areas! It's getting too cold now, waiting for the tram without heat lamps. Where the workers are currently working - cant that wait? Priority now should be the waiting area!!!!

    E Rd Manhattan, NY 10044, USA - Roosevelt Island

    The park just opened a year ago. But the plantings are so unkempt the look like overgrown weeds and so so ugly.

    IDEA: let green-thumbed island residents do the gardening. Or better idea: parcel out plots to be used as urban gardens like the one at the north end!

  • South RI park Archived
    43-82 Vernon Blvd Queens, NY 11101, USA - NYC District 5

    What is supposed to be gardens and something to enjoy has become all weeds and ugly.

    IDEA: let's let some of the freen-thumbed islanders try their hands at planting their individual gardens!

  • Bike pump Archived
    543 Main St Manhattan, NY 10044, USA - Roosevelt Island

    So, I've heard that a bike pump is available at all times at PSD. But every time I try to use what they have - a flimsy manual one - it's broken and they always send me to the bus garage where I can never get access.

    Why don't we make RI more bike friendly? Why can't we install good ones - perhaps at the visitors center, another one at the lighthouse an another one at the gardens?

    PLEASE don't make these steps "exit only". Please make things easier by giving us better access to the platform.
  • Tram Acknowledged
    549 Main St New York, NY 10044, USA - Roosevelt Island
    On a blazing hot day PLEASE leave the exit door on tram open. A littl cross ventilation will really help in keeping the tram cool.

    In the dead of winter you would leave the exit doors open, causing a freezing cross ventilation. Now in summer when a little cross vent would be welcome, you close them, causing stifling conditions. Any chance of keeping them open to give us a little air?????
  • Red Bus Archived
    415 E Rd New York, NY 10044, USA - Roosevelt Island
    Literally thrown under the red bus! On this blustery wet Sunday, as tram was descending for arrival on RI I noticed an unusual sight. The Red Bus picking up passengers at the Subway! Great, I thought, they've added a new bus to accommodate Southpoint, and another bus will be waiting to pick us up. Wrong. Acc to NextBus the next bus was 17 min away. Leaving a tram full of passengers (incl elderly & low mobility folks) thrown "under the bus" to weather the storm or fend for ourselves to get home. Please explain, & correct the prob. Thank you.
  • Roosevelt Island Bridge & Main St New York, NY 10044, USA - Roosevelt Island

    Parents & dog owners! A little sensitivity and some rules needed! dogs going wild, barking, raring their teeth, and jumping up on the food have no place at the green market. Dogs of shouldn't be that close to food sales. And kids on Razor scooters, bikes, skates, etc. are a danger and a nuisance. Please take some responsibility.

    RIOC, would u kindly institute some rules:
    - no pets allowed in vicinity of food
    - no scooters, bicycles, rollerblades, etc. beyond this point?

    Thank you!

  • Tram at 9pm Archived

    The manhattan platform is packed. PLEASE extend "rush hour"!

    Why empty express buses at 10 am when there's a huge number of people waiting at the RI local bus stops? Why not discontinue the Express as of 9:30 or earlier even, and accommodate the rest of the island more appropriately?
  • Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge Manhattan, NY 10022, USA - City Council District 5
    Really, one tram after 8 is insufficient. Please extend "rush hour" until 10, or at least til 9.
