“Join the doctors as they head home from Manhattan! Take the Tram!”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

The most scenic way to travel to Roosevelt Island...take the Tram...anyone can catch the train! Besides, it's only had one accident in the past 75 years!

“An Expensive Trip to Nowhere”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

This particular mode of transportation is not part of the MTA system, so a metrocard won't work. The views are not even interesting. Unless you have reason to go to Roosevelt Island...forget it.

Reviewed 1 March 2012

A nice Sight seeing trip for the price of a subway ride. Don't miss it.

“One of the unexpected gems of the holiday”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

This will sound crazy for what is a ride on public transport but this was one of the high spots proably because it was so unexpected and free!!
The views are incredible and anyone who has watched Spiderman will recognise it at once.
Dont miss this when you are in New York
