A quiet little suburb nestled in between midtown and Queens. Dog friendly, peaceful, park happy and easy transportation this hidden suburban gem amongst the massive concrete jungle goes unnoticed by most. For Many Manhattanites Roosevelt Island doesn’t exist and at best a sense of mystery for few. I, myself occasionally thought “who lives out there? ”
Abroad the each tram to Roosevelt island is full of tourist snapping pictures left and right. They are correct to be snap happy as you are suspended in mid air over the east river. The little glass box tram offers some of the coolest and aerial views of our beloved Manhattan.
My question is. How do so many tourist know of this cheap sight seeing thrill, yet so many hustle and bustlers pass right by. Pretend to be a tourist, get your camera ready and prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
