I went to Roosevelt Island last summer to look at some apartments; a former coworker became a real estate agent and had some places for sale there. I was not really interested in living there, but I needed an excuse to ride the tram. I've lived here all my life and had never been to Roosevelt Island. Living here would NOT be my thing, the place seemed infested by young couples with dogs. But the tram ride was cool, although I'm sure the thrill would wear off rather quickly if I lived there and took it every day.
