A Rainy Day for New Year’s, Blessings for Roosevelt Island


A rainy day for New Year’s? Tradition says that’s a blessing because it bespeaks renewal, fertility and rinsing away the past. While 2021 wasn’t all bad, there’s the promise of better in 2022.

Blessings come as surely as disappointments. 2021 had more challenges than most, but a whole lot of good stuff too. From the completion of Cornell Tech, Phase One, through The Girl Puzzle, the community stood up and made the best of every situation.

Now, we tackle 2022 with hope for renewal and fresh starts as a rainy New Year’s Day sends a message ahead to the next 364.
