As of August 9, Hudson/Related is the official operator of the retail corridor on Roosevelt Island. Hopefully they will help us bring more store options to our residents. They have created an online survey and want to get as much feedback as possible from Roosevelt Island residents about their retail needs, priorities, likes and dislikes. To make sure the residents' needs will be addressed, please fill their survey by September 12, 2011: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RooseveltIslandRetailSurvey2011
You can find more information at the Roosevelt Islander blog.
