RIHS Returns The Elevator Storehouse Plaque Home On Roosevelt Island

Efforts by the Roosevelt Island Historical Society (RIHS) paid off yesterday when an original plaque from the Elevator Storehouse came home.

RIHS president Judith Berdy made room for the Elevator Storehouse plaque in the Visitor Center.

The plaque, identifying a building providing elevator service to Roosevelt Island from the Queensboro Bridge, arrived by car. Historical Society leader Judith Berdy arranged it.

She promised a good home, but until a crew mounts in reserved space on the wall, it rests in a comfy corner on the floor.

An unexpected reference on the plaque lists Bird S. Coler as Commissioner. Decades later, a hospital on Roosevelt Island would be named after him.
