The Rolling Seas of East 60th Street

As I stood this morning on the Roosevelt Island Tram, heading into Manhattan, I was struck by the wind that was making the cabin swing so much today . I have been on the tram on windier days, as many residents have, but with a half empty cabin you tend to feel it in your feet more. Makes that bump when we platform all the more exciting.

Supposedly when the new tram cables are strung the guide cables will be father apart, perhaps even ten feet on either side of each cabin decreasing the amount of swing. It will not be the same.

Amusing start to the day.
