On Saturday, June 8th, the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation hosts a day long community celebration (details here), kicked off with cleanup/beautification projects followed by family fun, a petting zoo, pony rides and, at day's end, a lively, free concert in Good Shepherd Plaza. Some important changes and opportunities you may want to know about...

  • Our popular Farmers Market goes retro, relocating to its longtime home under the Roosevelt Island Bridge Helix. Same great produce, same vendors.
  • Nearby, in the Motorgate turnaround adjacent to Gristedes, Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright and Senator José Serrano host a shred-a-thon in keeping with the green-theme. Bring any and all paper you want to securely dispose of or just get out of your cramped apartment. Watch it be torn into unidentifiable, recyclable bits.
  • Big Reuse, New York City's Department of Sanitation composting program will be accepting food scraps in Good Shepherd Plaza, starting at 9:00. (They won't be relocating with the Farmers Market.) No meat, fish, dairy, oil or grease, please.
The weather should be fine, maybe cloudier than we like, but no rain and pleasant temperatures in the 70s.
