    Has this service been cancelled? It hasn't worked for a long time; if so, you should advise residents.

    I've seen a supervisor on site. Are those people really qualified for the job?
  • 20 River Road New York, NY - Roosevelt Island
    The water coming to my apartment, as well as at least two other tenants, is dirty and bitter tasting. Management is very poorly responsive, tonight blaming it on the NYC water. 311 told me the problem is not city water. A sample was taken by management on 12/22/10, at my insistence, without results. The water is much worse again today.
  • Road 5 Roosevelt ISland, NY - Roosevelt Island
    Please provide some shelter at the Tram, the wind is brutal, and there is no shelter during the wait. At Minimum provide a shelter so that rain and sleet falling directly on passengers is reduced. The tacky heat lamps are no use at all. why not put a roof over that area and add more heat ?
  • Red Bus Acknowledged

    Pavers are coming apart in front of Nonno's pizza.
  • 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!

  • 465 Main St New York, NY - Roosevelt Island
    There are three areas within this playground that are built to contain woodchips for both safety and play purposes. All three areas have been empty for some time (8 weeks at least). One poses a safety hazard for children (around the bridge between the fort area and the swing area) and the other two are no longer functional play sites. Please replace the woodchips. Thank you.
  • 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?

    I live at the octagon. I came downstairs at 8:28 this sat morning and the bus had already left. On tues I was waiting at the bus stop a full 2 minutes before it was supposed to leave and no bus. I own an iPhone, I think the time is accurate. Plus, I'm not the only one waiting, so I know it's not just me Please tell your bus drivers to wait till the scheduled time. Them leaving 2 minutes early means I arrive 15 minutes late to work.
    Thank you.

    Can something be done to manage the families and children blocking the sidewalks outside of PS/IS 217 in the morning at 8:30 and in the afternoon at 2:45-3:15? I've asked the principal before, and I've offered solutions, but the school seems unwilling to touch this problem.

    There are a lot of cars at Motorgate that park outside the parking lines and as a result take up more than one space. Some cars park in the small car areas that are very big and this makes it difficult to get around the turns. Most of the parking lot lines are old, not clear or bright so a solution might be to paint these with a bright reflective paint. Also the rules should be enforced or penalty system agreed to make sure people parking follow the rules.
