Roosevelt Island

 Neighborhood Overview

Roosevelt Island is a narrow island in the East River that lies between Manhattan to its west and the borough of Queens to its east and runs from East 46th to East 85th streets.  It is primarily residential with a very diverse community. There are many new restaurants, sports bars and stores making it a convenient neighborhood to live; and the entire island is riverside with fabulous views of Manhattan.  An unusual aspect is that it is practically traffic free.


Many Roosevelt Island's residential buildings are rentals, but there are also co-ops and condos.

Most residences are situated in high-rise buildings offering waterfront living, and if you want to pay more you can have plenty of amenities like tennis courts, a day-care center and swimming pool.


Main Street is the main drag where there are a few restaurants to visit. Trellis has a local community vibe, Riverwalk Bar & Grill offers a walk up deli side and proper dining room, and Nonno’s Focacceria & Pizzeria, which will deliver your picnic to the park.

Arts and Entertainment

The residents of Roosevelt Island have cultivated a lot of family friendly and community events including outdoor movies and fairs, outdoor concerts and jazz fests, and holiday themed events for children throughout the year. There is no nightlife and the sidewalks pretty much role up after dark. 


 Aerial Tram or F train connect to Manhattan  

Great Outdoors

There is a nice walking path stretching along the water and it is very easy for one to get to some beautiful parks and watch the boats go by.  On the East River, sculptures can be seen and there are quiet spots to cast for black fish in the East River.  About two-thirds of the area is parkland and open space with historical landmarks and picnic spots.
