Roaming Roosevelt Island: Cherry Blossom Festival

Roosevelt Island held its annual Cherry Blossom Festival today at the southern end of the island.

Elliot's reaction to seeing the crowds (4,500 people are said to have attended): "Wow, Daddy, those people must really love cherry blossoms."

Of course, there was Japanese food as well — along with yo-yo balloons and the requisite "sake garden."

There were lots of kids in the sake garden, but parents may just have been confused by the "and/or" wording.
