One of New York's best kept secrets, Roosevelt Island is a beautiful little spot situated between Manhattan and Queens. The best way to get to the island is via a quick and scenic cable car journey from the Lower East Side. I took a short trip here over the weekend and had a very pleasant day despite the freezing temperatures!
Roosevelt Island was named after the U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and features a large memorial park at the Southern point of the island. Although the trees are bare since winter is hitting, the scenery is really beautiful and well kept. The perfect location for a Sunday stroll - I'd really recommend a visit! The northern tip of Roosevelt Island features a old lighthouse - which I unfortunately didn't have time to visit!
On a clear day, city views of Manhattan are pretty spectacular too! I managed to time the sunset pretty perfectly and was wowed by the pink skies as I headed back to Manhattan.
I'm really sad to say that this week will be my last week living in New York as I'm heading back to London this weekend. Has anyone got any last minute recommendations for things to do in NYC? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
