Roosevelt Island Cherry Blossom Festival

The cherries blossomed late in 2018. But once the did, they were glorious.

To celebrate the cherry blossom season, every year, Roosevelt Island holds a Japanese cultural event with music, dance and performances. I loved the Taiko Drumming, and I wasn’t the only one. That long line you see above, was to catch the aerial tram to Roosevelt Island. I’d never seen such a long line at the station before – nor such crowds on tiny Roosevelt Island.
