Each year, thousands of visitors stop in the Kiosk. Some swoop in, grab a map, and leave, while others are extremely interested in Roosevelt Island and spend time chatting with our staff. Two recent visitors were so pleased with their experiences that they took the time to follow up with e-mails to Judith Berdy.

“[…] thanks so much for remembering to send that!  And thanks for chatting with us on Saturday.  Another really enjoyable visit to RI!  Hope to see you there again soon – have a great week and all the best, Tom.”

“I want to thank you for taking time to help me understand and appreciate Roosevelt Island.  I spent more than three hours walking around, taking photos and visiting with people there before taking the tram back to Manhattan. The map was an incredible help.  Something else I got from you was the yellow Archtober brochure.  I attended four interesting tours and lectures which I would not have known about had you not told me about the annual event.  Anyway, now that I’m back in Portland, OR I found your card among my NYC papers and now you know that your presence at the information center on Roosevelt Island made a difference to my NYC experience.  Thank you.  YT,  Corlene”
