There's something else special about Roosevelt Island. Today - January 3rd, 2018 - "...was a snow day for all school children in New York City, all after-school programs were closed also, except for one, the Roosevelt Island Youth Program," brags Executive Director Charlie DeFino.

"For the past four decades, the Youth Program has provided services for youth on every school snow day except for one and on every NYC emergency.

"The program takes pride in providing these special services for the youth and families of the island," added DeFino.

"Today our clients feasted on grilled cheese and hot chocolate, watched movies, had access to computers, played video games and cards with their friends in a safe and loving environment: Roosevelt Island."
