'We Are Family' on Roosevelt Island

I was excited to discover today that the 1979 video for Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" is set on Roosevelt Island.

It was filmed at Southpoint Park, which was quite a bit different back then (the skyline is a lot less crowded as well).

The kids know "We Are Family" as the ringtone on their Grandmama's phone, so they were pretty excited to see this too.
