This weekend, art and “Near record high temperatures”


Coming up, this weekend, get ready for some subway changes, an annual art event and “Near record high temperatures” on Sunday. Snow marked recent weekend weather, but this weekend, snow seems a long way off.

What’s happening, this weekend?

In fair weather, subway shutdowns can mean long lines for the Tram.

Starting with the basics: “Jamaica-bound F trains will be rerouted via the E after 47-50 Sts to Queens Plaza because of structural maintenance,” the MTA says. In short, you can take an F Train into Manhattan, but you’ll have to find a different way back. You’ve got the Tram, of course, or you can take an E out to Roosevelt Avenue and come back on an F to Roosevelt Island.

Console yourself with art

Saturday evening, the Roosevelt Island Visual Art Association (RIVAA) opens Vernissage 21, its annual group art show, and it marks the 20th anniversary of the day its 527 Main Street gallery opened.

Everyone’s invited to a public reception from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday. Meet the artists and appreciate the art.

But weather is the big news…

Not so much on Saturday, when clouds prevail over a mid 40s high. But by the time some passing showers dampen the overnight, Sunday’s high heads toward a predicted 70. That day, March 6th, is the average date of the last snowfall of 1″ or more in New York City, but not this weekend.

Shirtsleeve weather for a single day gives us a bit of promise during troubling times.
