10,000 people visited Roosevelt Island yesterday.
on Roosevelt Island, on a beautiful Sunday morning.
Today, Roosevelt Island hosted the 3rd edition of the annual Cherry Tree festival. I was there for just a few minutes at the end of the day, and here are a few images.
In 2011 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp started to organize a cherry tree festival, to celebrate spring and the beautiful cherry tree promenade on Roosevelt Island. It also honored the victims of the of the powerful earthquake and tsunami which struck Japan in 2011. It was a nice warm afternoon, combining spring beauty with Japanese traditions. See images below.
