When people think about Roosevelt Island , that island that sits in the middle of the East River , they’re only seeing a part of it.
A very small part of it as a matter of fact .
Most people don’t realize that the area near the Ed Koch 59th Street Bridge and tram are on the Southern part of the island.
Further down is the Northern part of the island.
From here you can see part of the Bronx, the Upper East side of Manhattan and in the distance the RFK Bridge , which used to be called the Triboro Bridge , which separates Manhattan from Queens and The Bronx .
There’s lots of boats going up and down the East River .
Many of which just aren’t sightseeing boats.
The other day I was there for a picnic and just enjoyed the day and the view.
Enjoy the view that I had and while you’re in New York City for your own 30 Plus Teams Tour , make ALL of Roosevelt Island a stop if you can.
Look for the bright red buses.
They go all over the island .
You won’t be disappointed .
