Best NEW YORK CITY Views: Roosevelt Island Tram Ride to & from the Upper East Side of Manhattan
YouTubers JamesandKarla take the ROOSEVELT ISLAND TRAM to see the BEST VIEWS OF NEW YORK CITY TO & FROM THE UPPER EAST SIDE OF MANHATTAN for only the price of a subway ride at $2.75 each way. While on Roosevelt Island, we also visit the Four Freedoms Park on the southern tip of the island and see more amazing views of Manhattan skyscrapers and the Queensboro Bridge aka 59th Street Bridge and the borough of Queens, New York. The Roosevelt Island Tramway is the only commuter cable car in North America and the ride itself only takes about 5 minutes. We take the tram from the Upper East Side of Manhattan to Roosevelt Island and then back again so you can see the spectacular views each way!
We are architectural/interior photographers & videographers based in NYC. We started our video channel to act an artistic intervention to help raise awareness of the importance of small independently-owned businesses and the unique character these shops add to the streets and neighborhoods of New York City. In our videos we will showcase portraits of storefronts and shop owners in New York City & beyond and capture moments of city life that capture the spirit, energy and cultural diversity of individual neighborhoods. We also bring our rescue dog, Hudson along whenever we can.
