NY Neighborhood: Roosevelt Island, New York City
Roosevelt Island is a haven just off the coast of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Easily accessible from the F train or the aerial tramway, Roosevelt Island is a charming mix of metropolitan convenience and small town ambiance, with much of the island designated as car-free areas. Roosevelt Island boasts several parks and promenades and offers baseball fields, tennis courts, and the Sportspark center with swimming pool and indoor and outdoor basketball courts. Main Street offers a wide variety of dining venues and retail locations to residents, with everything from dry cleaners and a drug store to nail salons and a movie theater. And because Roosevelt Island is only approximately 2 miles long and 800 feet wide, all of these amenities are right near the full-service, luxury residential buildings.
