New York NY (20) – Views from Roosevelt Island
We came across Roosevelt Island by accident. I knew of its’ existence but had never intended to visit the place. We were on our way to Queens when we decided to get off the subway at the Queensboro Plaza, and take a closer look at the Queensboro Bridge. Our closer look ended up with us walking across the bridge back into Manhattan and catching the Tram to the island.
Here are some photos of the Manhattan skyline (Midtown East) from the island.
Underneath the Queensboro Bridge. The overhead tram cables can be seen to the right.
Looking south down the walking path. The East River to the right.
The UN Building. An unidentified boat is being checked by the River Patrol.
