Roosevelt Island Tram, NYC Photos Gallery - Page 1
Our flag flies mighty at the waiting area for the Roosevelt Island tram. The tram arrives.
Here we await the Roosevelt Island Tram's arrival. As of this writing the fare for traveling across the East River is $1.50. The views from the tram on a clear day can really be impressive. Too bad this particular day was hazy.

And here it is. There is both sitting and standing room within the tram.

The tram arrives and we walk aboard. Windows line all sides for unobstructed views of the north and south of the East River as well as Manhattan Island, Roosevelt Island, Queens and the Queensboro Bridge.

Formerly known as Welfare Island, Franklin D. Roosevelt Island was originally settled by Europeans in the late 17th century and became known as Blackwell's Island. NYC bought the island in the late 1820s. The Island became known as Welfare Island in 1921 and then Roosevelt Island in 1973. Today it's a home to many.
