The first big cherry blossom wave swamps Roosevelt Island

After a modest start in March, the first big wave of cherry blossoms opened in April, from one end of Roosevelt Island to the other. There are delightful newbies and exquisite oldies.

The first big wave…

The first big, pink wave of blossom season on Roosevelt Island swept in as March turned into April. The center point, for now, is Riverwalk Commons where the community sports the greatest traffic.

But it all started early in March as our first blossoms opened on the East Promenade near Capobianco Field. That’s our first, local harbinger of spring. Cooler weather followed, but that just promises a longer, fuller season.

The march into spring featured newcomers as young trees planted, last year, by Judith Berdy and the Historical Society sprung their first ever buds, increasing traditions along both shorelines.

To the south, the cherry tree row below the Queensboro bridge also made their 2022 debut.

As this season continues, expect more visitors, warmer weather and more breathtaking breakouts in pink.
