    You can get some great shots of Manhattan from Roosevelt Island. Otherwise there's not much to do. See my videos of Manhattan from Roosevelt Island. They are my first ones, so hope you don't get sea sick watching them.

    Take the tram from TramPlaza at 59th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan. http://www.ny.com/transportation/ri_tramway.html

    Or if you prefer, take the F train from 63rd and Lexington towards Queens and get off at the first stop.

    Leisure Stroll

    by franceonisland Written Jun 6, 2005

    When you're visiting Manhattan, take a short subway ride (F train to Roosevelt Island) or tram ride (at 60th & 2nd Ave,) to this 265-acre jewel in the East River. You can walk around the island along the path by the seawall and find a tiny lighthouse at the north end and a landmark-protected ruin and undeveloped park at the south end.

    This excursion will cost you $4, the price of a roundtrip on subway or tram.

    Take the Tram

    The Tram to Roosevelt Island

    This would be kind of fun and you would get a good aerial view of the city. I haven't worked up the courage to do it myself. You can probably get some good photos from here too.
