When you visit New York, a fun, cheap and great view of the city can be had by riding the Roosevelt Island Tram. It’s the same cost as a bus ride and takes just minutes to cross the river. I was lucky enough to capture this colorful view New York while on the Roosevelt Island Tram.
For years the Roosevelt Island Tram (pictured above) was the only aerial tram in the United States. In 1984 the Mississippi Aerial Tram was built in New Orleans. Later, in 2006 the Portland Aerial Tram became operational. The Portland Tram is in our backyard, minutes from where we live. When our son was a toddler, it was the best ride in town and the view was amazing on a clear day.
