One of my favourite secret gems in NY: The Roosevelt Island Tramway. It provides the most modern aerial tramway in the world, running every 7-15 minutes from 59th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan to Tramway Plaza on Roosevelt Island. Each cabin accommodates a capacity of 125 people, makes approximately 115 trips per day, and about 100 on weekends. Can offer you the enjoyment of picturesque and spectacular city views from an interesting angle. 🔸One the most affordable tourist attractions in NY: the ticket is only $2.25 each way ($4 for a round trip)
🔸MTA MetroCards are accepted (in other words metro pass for NY subway - mine way weekly unlimited, so I did not have to pay anything at all for this ride)
🔸Two cabins make the run from 6:00am to 2:30am (3:30am on weekends) and continuously during rush hours.
