Going to Roosevelt Island, and to Four Freedoms Park especially, has been on my nyc bucket list for some time. I finally managed to make it over via tram this past Sunday. The length of a neighborhood, Roosevelt Island still has plenty to see, like a lighthouse and the remains of a hospital. There's ice cream to eat on Main Street (I had the banana ice cream with brownie chunks) and parks dotted across the island. I most enjoyed seeing Four Freedoms Park and strolling along the water, breathing in the fresh river breeze. It feels like being somewhere else.
