We headed over to the park on the tramway and had a great morning - the views back to Manhattan are excellent and it is a unique way to see New York.

It is just a pleasure to have places, and green spaces that are open and accessable for us all; even if we don't get to enjoy them daily, its wonderful to know that on the occasion when we do have the time...there is the space...It used to be the notion, that the only open spaces and natural habits were the exclusive venues of the wealthy.

You can’t really do wrong when you’ve got the views of Manhattan to play with, but this is still a very nice park that suitably marks ones trip to the island. Standing at the top and looking out at the river is an experience one can’t easily beat.

I’m a typical NY’er who only gets to places like this when guests come from out of town and that’s what finally got me to this elegant place at the tip of Roosevelt Island floating serenely in the middle of the East River. The tram ride over with great views up and down the river is the first fun part of the trip and then the walk to the memorial is amidst beautifully landscaped paths and interesting buildings both Old and new. This is a great memorial to not only FDR but also Louis Kahn, it’s ground breaking architect whose vision is beautifully expressed here. This is a lovely respite from the hustle of NY and reading the words of FDR carved into stone reminds us of the important freedoms and principles our country was founded on and how we must vigilantly strive to maintain them.
