A few weeks ago the Roosevelt Island Operating Cooperation began testing the new trams that were supposed to be up and running September. That date got pushed to "early November," and now RIOC VP of Operations Fernando Martinez says "our best estimate is the 3rd or 4th week of November." However, the community doesn't seem to be getting their hopes up; one Roosevelt Islander said, "I expect the tram to be back in Jan or Feb next year. Anything sooner would really surprise me." For now, we can just watch that scene in Spiderman and remember better times. [Via Roosevelt Islander]
