Roosevelt Island Tramway – New York City

Thanks to our friend Jessica, a resident of remarkable Roosevelt Island, Jeanne and I enjoyed riding The Roosevelt Tramway located just north of the Queens Mid-Town Bridge, aka the 59th Street Bridge, aka the Ed Koch Bridge. This Post contains nine random images from this past Saturday.

        I watched it last night…. I’m gald I didn’t see it before going on the tram! But yes, you were right on with the similaruity between (particularly) first photo above and the movie. I actually am pretty sure I saw the film way back then…1981?? And that scene with the poor dead woman being thrown from the tram! Whooo! (SO many changes in 35 years, – the people, the lack of buildings on RI, and culture… and disco!!! ) Thanks for the comments, Ed.

  4. This was a drive down memory lane. Had to show my boy these wonderful shots of Mom’s old stomping grounds. Funny that I crossed that bridge a million times and saw the tram but never rode it. Husband asks if it is pricey. No, right?

    Not much for city living, but have to admit the setting offers great photo opportunities.
