How to get there? Take the Roosevelt Island’s cable car on 60th et 2nd Avenue (it’s worth it, only for the cable car ride and the view there!) or the subway F (stop: Roosevelt Island.)

Which weather conditions? In fine weather.

Price? $2.75 one way, to pay with your metrocard

What to do?

  • See the various points of interest on the island (Blackwell Island’s lighthouse (north of the island), the ancient and shutted down “Smallpox” hospital, …)
  • Walk in the parks, especially the “Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedom Park”, open in 2012, and admire its gorgeous architecture, designed over more than 40 years and the huge Roosevelt sculpture.
  • Enjoy the view of Manhattan’s East Side and Long Island City.
  • Walking “in the middle of” East River

For who?

  • Everybody. Kids will run riot in the large parks, adults will enjoy the view and elderly will love the quiteness on the island. This is a walking visit.
  • Photographers.

Infrastructures? A Starbucks, a few restaurants and grocery stores.

    1. Hello Catalina, effectivement, je pense que quelle que soit la durée du séjour, c’est impossible de tout voir à New York! Merci pour ton commentaire et à bientôt!

  2. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous, Amy! I live in upstate New York (couple of hours from the city), but I don’t think I’ve heard of Roosevelt Island. Next time we make a trip down to the city, I totally want to check this place out!

    1. Ravie de t’avoir fait découvrir quelque chose de nouveau, Letizia! Je vais essayer de proposer un peu de tout, mais en privilégiant les endroits “moins connus”! A très bientôt!

      Amy
