Unmitigated Gall: RIOC Thanks Itself for the 4th of July

Start

In an act of unmitigated gall, RIOC thanked itself for the 4th of July celebration after blocking residents from using Southpoint, the public park they pay for. The tweet embraces the “planning committee,” consisting of Altheria Jackson, Mary Cunneen, Kevin Brown, Anthony Amoroso and Wanda Coleman. Roosevelt Islanders are never mentioned.

RIOC’s 4th of July Tweet:

July 4th Celebration Recap! We wanted to sincerely thank our RIOC team, our partners and stakeholders for your commitment and assistance. A special thank you to the RIOC planning committee: Altheria Jackson, Mary Cunneen, Kevin Brown, Anthony Amoroso and Wanda Coleman

Originally tweeted by RIOC NYS (@RIOCny) on July 5, 2022.

While much of the video shows people crowded together in shadeless meadows on Cornell Tech’s Campus, one sequence includes a view from the Shelton J. Haynes/Langan Rock Farm in Southpoint where no one else was permitted.
