A Very Big Day for Roosevelt Island

There was a lot of excitement in the air yesterday, with Hillary Clinton holding a historic rally at the southern end of Roosevelt Island. Even Gristedes, a chain owned by a Republican, got into the spirit.

For the kids, though, Saturday was Roosevelt Island Day — an equally thrilling event. The festivities (including a petting zoo, bouncy castles and balloon animals) occurred in their usual spot near the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, about a mile from where Hillary was giving her speech.

Despite the heat — and the disappearance of the spinning apple ride (where did it go?) — everyone had a great time.

Hillary should have stopped by for some free cotton candy.
