Get to know Roosevelt Island

Sitting in the middle of the East River only a short distance from both Manhattan and Queens, two-mile-long Roosevelt Island can feel surprisingly distant from the rest of the city—like its own self-contained world. This character is unquestionably amplified due to Roosevelt Island being the only New York City neighborhood you can access via an aerial tram. It's actually impossible to drive there from Manhattan: You must either ride the tram, or hop on the F train to the island’s lone stop. From the Queens side, you can take a car or bus across the Roosevelt Island Bridge, or make use of the ferry. For much of its history, Roosevelt Island was known as Welfare Island, and was home to several early hospitals. Redevelopment began in 1969 in the form of apartment towers, with contributions from noted architects such as Philip Johnson, John Burgee, and Josep Lluís Sert. Today, it's home to thousands of New Yorkers.
