Sledding Through a Construction Site

One of the best spots for sledding in Roosevelt Roosevelt Island (Southtown Hill) is now basically a construction site.


They're building a new tower for the island's Riverwalk complex.


I guess I could rail against the overdevelopment/gentrification of New York and how it's depriving us of good sledding. But I'm always in favor of building more housing (even if we probably won't be able to afford to live there).


Plus, there was still enough room to have fun — though Alice did end up barreling into a wooden fence and smacking her forehead.


Fortunately, there's nothing hot chocolate can't fix.
