Service Targets Roosevelt Landings, 2/4 River Road

Package Haven: Problem Solver for Roosevelt Island?

Updated 43 weeks ago

"I have a business idea that would solve a huge problem for a large percentage of Roosevelt Islanders. Particularly, residents of Roosevelt Landings and perhaps 2 - 4 River Road," Rece Reid wrote. He's talking about the challenge of package deliveries at buildings lacking staffed door stations.

"As a resident of Roosevelt Landings for 25 years, I know first hand the massive problem with package deliveries. We do not have a doorman or concierge so packages are left in the lobby or in front of our apartment doors leaving them vulnerable to theft. Getting our packages in a timely manner is a major issue," Reid elaborated.

Roosevelt Landings is, by far, the communities largest housing complex.

The solution: a storefront facility on Main Street that will receive packages on behalf of residents (who choose to sign up) so that they can pick up their packages at a convenient time.

"I am hoping to lease the space at 559 Main Street. Before I make this massive investment, I want to gauge interest from the community."

To that end, Reid asks interested residents to complete a survey designed to determine if Package Haven has future here.

Answer just a few questions online: Package Haven Survey. It's simple and should take only a minute or two.
