RIHS Visitor's Center to Open Officially - 7/27/07

Tomorrow, Friday, July 27, 2008, is the official opening of the Visitors Center on Roosevelt Island. Judy Berdy of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society will get to officially open the former Trolley Kiosk. The RIHS has been manning the center, Noon to 6:00 pm everyday, since its debut just prior to the July 4th weekend.

I expect to take some video of the official event and post it here by Saturday morning.

I just realized while writing this post that I missed their tearing down or removing the old dilapidated booth that RIOC maintained by the Subway station that once acted as the “visitor’s center. Does anyone have a picture of it anymore? I guess it was so ugly and old that its removal went unnoticed by all but a few.

Photos of the Visitor’s Center in action can be seen via the RIHS photo page on Flickr and be linked to
