Queensboro Bridge and Aerial Tram to Roosevelt Island

Queensboro Bridge and Aerial Tram to Roosevelt Island
A few days earlier, my brother, a resident of Tarrytown, came down to Manhattan to drive us to his home to see his new daughter. When we drove on the Queensboro Bridge to get to his home, I said to myself that I want to take some photos of the bridge when I come back to Manhattan. So one morning I took the bus and subway from our hotel at West 96th Street and Broadway down to East 63rd Street and York Avenue to admire the bridge.

The aerial tramway (overhead cable car) connects 2nd Avenue at East 59th Street to Roosevelt Island, an urban oasis just off Upper East Side. And did I visit Roosevelt Island? No, I didn't have time : ( Next time I visit NYC I must take the aerial tram to Roosevelt Island!
