After multiple visits to Manhattan, I was finally able to add this to my itinerary. It was convenient since we were able to use our Metro Card. We waited for a quick 15 minutes as it made its way back to Manhattan from Roosevelt Island. No big deal, I was able to take pictures and video of the tram as it made its way in. It was a cramped and crowded tram ride, (mostly tourists). I didn’t care, I stood toward the front and I was able to snag great pictures of the scenery. Honestly, there's not much to do at Roosevelt Island. I did however enjoy the quick stroll down the few shops. It was peaceful and silent . A much needed rest from the busy Manhattan noise. We sat at the small park adjacent the Starbucks. We snagged great pics of Manhattan from there. I would love to return at night to see the skyline. We took the subway back to Manhattan.
