    Great views and more reliable than the F train.

    If you are visiting with a large group, taking the tram from Manhattan and the F train back to the city OR visa versa gets you a free transfer so you only pay once for a roundtrip

    Great scenic views of both Roosevelt Island and Manhattan East

    On a bright clear day there's no sight more beautiful than the east river from the tram. All for the price of a metrocard swipe!

    You have to pay for your way back, you can't stay on the tram even if you're there just for the ride. So go explore the island.

    Ana Carolina Miranda · March 11, 2014
  • Elaine H.

    Good view today

    Please respect that this is public transportation for many of us, and not a tourist attraction.

    Check out Riverwalk Bar & Grill at 425 Main Street (2 blocks North of the tram station) when you visit Roosevelt Island. Coffee, sandwiches, burgers & cocktails. Outdoor patio too!

    The view from the north side, night or day, is almost unbeatable.

    This is definitively one of our favorite spots in NYC. The tram is accessible with your metro-card and gives you amazing panoramic views.

    Its a fun ride with great views to get into the city rather than taking the boring subway

  • Jonathan H.

    If u ever see me on the tram, yell "Boogyman! Boogyman, tell me your secrets!" to earn a free drink at Riverwalk Bar & Grill.

    Jonathan H · February 12, 2012
  • Norman E.

    Without a doubt the most picturesque and fun commute home in NYC.

    Norman Ellis · January 15, 2012
  • Jonathan H.

    One of the coolest but most overlooked views is AS you cross OVER 2nd ave. Look north at the traffic coming at you. Unique view for NYC

    Island Red Bus doesn't take Metro Card, but it's only .25 cents.

    Use your Metrocard to board this piece of old NYC and take in the spectacular view! Oh and you might also recognize the tram from the Spider-Man movie =) Read more

    Take a ride on the Tram with your metrocard and enjoy some of the best views of the city – especially great at sunrise or sunset.

    The new tram is amazing!! Faster, smoother, and roomier than the old tram and the views are still spectacular!
