Blackwell's Island, then Welfare Island, Roosevelt Island has changed a lot
With Judith Berdy
Join Judith Berdy, President of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society, on a walk through the northern part of the island. Visit the interior of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, and hear the story of the landmark building that has served the religious congregations since 1889. Stroll up Main Street and learn of the original 1970s Roosevelt Island development, the new plans for Main Street, and the communities that came later. Explore the wonderful interior lobby of the Octagon. Bring a picnic dinner for enjoyment in Lighthouse Park.
