Huge lines at the Roosevelt Island Tram Station this afternoon.

 

 Waiting To Board The Roosevelt Island Tram This Afternoon

According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):
 

The Roosevelt Island Tramway is experiencing higher than usual passenger volume due to the Roosevelt Island Cherry Blossom Festival. This has caused some overcrowding on the platform. The Public Safety Department is limiting the number of passengers allowed onto the tram platform at any one time until such time as the passenger volume decreases.
