Radio Rookies partnered with the NYC Salt teen photography program to create multimedia stories documenting Roosevelt Island’s Main Street. Many New Yorkers know little about Roosevelt Island besides that the tram takes you there. Over the course of a 6-week intensive workshop, the Short Wave Rookie Reporters found all kinds of fascinating stories on this island that's so close, yet so different from the rest of the city.
Their stories are part of a collaboration with the Mapping Main Street project which aims to collect stories from all of the more than 10,000 streets named Main in the United States.

Short Wave Radio Rookies went to Roosevelt Island's Main Street to report multimedia stories. On the north end of the Island they found a colony of cats and a whole community of people who love them.
