"The Roosevelt Island Experience" Roosevelt Island by VinTolucci
Roosevelt Island Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 42 photos
Roosevelt Island recently slipped into our cultural consciousness. Spiderman was filmed here. The river flows smoothly into NYC harbor, perfect for swimming.
Roosevelt Island is tiny. Once you reach the northern end of the Island you will see Queens county on the right, Randalls Island to the north, and Manhattan to the left. And in the middle of it all the gentle waters of the East River, not a true river by the way but an estuary.
This is the bridge and tram as seen in the first Spiderman movie.
- Pros:Easy to get to, Manhattan skyline from a different perspective
- Cons:You can't spend the night here
- In a nutshell:Perfect for taking pictures of NYC
Getting to Roosevelt Island is easy. From Manhattan take the tram at the base of the 59th street bridge on the east side... more travel advice
