Posts Tagged ‘Roosevelt Island’

One of these days I hope to actually get in some time to write, when things are not quite as crazy- is that even possible?? =) Anyway, happy Wednesday everyone, today I am going to be sharing some pics that I took last week when the girls and I were out enjoying their Spring Break. We decided to take the tram over to Roosevelt Island (remember the tram scenes from the movie Spiderman?!) and do some exploring. For the mere cost of a swipe of your Metro Card you can take a tram ride boarding from the east side at 59th street taking a journey above the East River to Roosevelt Island. My Manhattan girlies found Roosevelt Island to be both calm and a little bit boring while I quite enjoyed the change of pace and idyllic surroundings. We all agreed that the views of Manhattan were spectacular and that the tram ride was super fun! History of Roosevelt Island

Waiting for the tram to arrive!

More views of Manhattan- can you spot the top of the Empire State Building?

Old asylum ruins on the island- the history is really cool.

Almost home =)
