New York City skyline and the Roosevelt Island tram
The Roosevelt Island Tram has been taking commuters from Manhattan to Roosevelt Island since the 1970s. It was completely renovated and modernized in 2010. Its highest point is 250 feet up in the air and it travels alongside the Queensboro Bridge above the East River.
I have always referred to it lovingly as the slow amusement park ride in the middle of New York City. The views of midtown Manhattan’s skyscrapers as the tram car moves up and over the changing cityscape are absolutely breathtaking.
It’s the closest I can get to my childhood dreams of soaring above and through the city like Batman.
