Hold On ;)
One of the best city views for $2,50 (or MetroCard).
Awesome views of city and river, and ride for free with an unlimited metro card. Worth taking on a nice day just for fun.
Great for taking photos at night.
Remember it costs one swipe each way and you don't have the option to just stay on and ride back. They will make you get off and swipe back in.
Stuck in the streets? Glide through the streets! You can with the Roosevelt Iceland Tram - a bright red cable car in the middle of Manhattan. The view is worth a fortune but costs only a few dollars!
Good view on a sunny day and a different way to cross the river than subway or taxi. There are restaurants and a drug store on Roosevelt Island to refuel
Need to fill your metrocard for the q60 or q32 bus on he corner? The tram has a metrocard machine - closer than the 6 train machine blocks away
Great view of the city but the tram is not for those scared of heights. Just remember. Those bumps don't mean it's going to fall every time.
Take the tram to Roosevelt Island. Dont be the typical tourist and head straight back. Instead walk the waterfront down to Four Freedoms park and savor the amazing views of Manhattan.
You can use your metro card! A hidden gem and lovely views

Fun trip if you're looking for something quiet to do in NYC.
It's fun once, if you've never been there. to take the tram and walk around the island.,
Riverwalk Bar & Grill is located 1 block north of the Roosevelt Island station at 425 Main Street. Pick up drinks & sandwiches here before exploring the island. Or sit outside for lunch or a cocktail
For the cost of a subway ride (and you can use your MetroCard), you can take a cable car ride from Midtown Manhattan onto Roosevelt Island, which sits in the East River between Manhattan and Queens.
Second best bargain since the Staten Island Ferry. One swipe of the Metro Card; if you took the Subway here, it's a freebie transfer outbound and you next subway swipe is a transfer on the way home.
Neat way to see Manhattan from above. Cost = Metro Card swipe. On Roosevelt Island see: Light House, Four Freedoms Park, abandoned Small Pox Hospital, beautiful East River walk; great for picnics.

When you get off tram be careful when walking on paved pathway. Some pavers are lifted from frost heave- don't fall!
They recently redid the the station to include a roof to protect against the rain.
I enjoyed shooting Roosevelt Island today...
Great way to see skyline of the city especially at night.
great to take by sunny day
Fun little trip. The island is oddly quiet.
Look South to get a glimpse of Roosevelt Island's FDR Four Freedoms Park designed by Louis Kahn. The park will be opening Fall 2012!
Not just for commuters…tourists should take a ride not only for the fantastic views, but to go take a stroll around Roosevelt Island. A ride costs $2.25 each way.
When you hear the ringing sound- you just missed the tran
If you're a tourist, the ride is better at night
Tourists it's best to ride it late at night. This way you don't annoy the island residents and workers who depend on this for their commute to and from work.
A lovely place.

Ladies love the tram.
Best to take this during the day - amazing views on a clear day.
