Welcome from New York 10044, Roosevelt Island.

Roosevelt Island is located between Manhattan and Queens, to its east, running from Manhattan’s east 46th to East 85th streets. Its famous  “Tram”, The Roosevelt Island Tramway, is an aerial tramway that spans the East River and connects the island to Manhattan; 10044 is its our unique zip code.

DSC_9876Since March 1, 2010, the tram has been closed for a modernization program, expected to be completed in six months (November 2010).

the 2Tram of Roosevel IslandRoosevelt Island is only two miles (3 km) long, with a maximum width of 800 feet (240 m), and a total area of 147 acres (0.59 km2); it also has its own community newspaper, The Main Street WIRE, founded in 1979 and published every two weeks.

The newspaper confines its coverage to Roosevelt Island matters, a community within New York City that is operated by the State (not the City) of New York, with a local “authority” called the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC) in charge.

In this blog I will try to bring news and photos taken on the Island; this is also your space:
