Briefly

  • A Public Safety Officer managed to reunite a confused 90-year-old inadvertent Island visitor with her son last week. The RIOC Column has the story.
  • The 2015 Roosevelt Island Calendar is off the press and ready for delivery, featuring Islanders’ photos of the Island.
  • Soccer has taken off among the Island’s kids. Adib Mansour has a full report in this issue.
  • The deadline looms (all deadlines loom) for decisions to run for election to the Common Council of the Residents Association. See The RIRA Column.
  • The Hands-Only CPR campaign has now trained over 250 Islanders in the lifesaving technique, and it’s seeking translator volunteers to put its fact-sheet into other languages.

The RIOC Column

Before addressing Fall for Arts and other upcoming Island projects, I would like to commend our Public Safety officers for a job well done.
