It's was a big day for Roosevelt Island as a community that's waited for Kaie and Alex Razaghi to reopen for over three years welcomed them with an upbeat ribbon cutting, organized by RIOC. Council Member Ben Kallos did the honors as an eager crowd waited to be the first customers. Here's what we saw.
