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!

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.

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

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
