We used the Aerial Tram to get to the Island and then back to Manhattan. The best part of Roosevelt Island are the views back to Manhattan over the East River. It was a cold October mid week day, so it was quiet. We had...More

Caught the train to the Island, and traveled up the huge escalators, then took a short walk to see Manhattan from a different view. Then took the Cable Car/tram Way back and it was great.

I missed out on going to Roosevelt Island when I first visited NYC, so it was top of my list when I visited this year. I wasn't disappointed either. Having learnt the type of president that Roosevelt was, this dedication really suited him. And it...More

This is part of the city you have to see. A memorial to a very deserving man. It makes you think, "A four term President!" Please, do yourself a favor and visit!
