Explore New York City from a bird's perspective. This unique aerial tramway leads from Roosevelt Island to Upper East Side Manhattan and offers unforgettable aerial views of the city. Hop on and enjoy this ten-minute ride.
If you have your MetroCard prepaid you can use it as you would in any other subway station so you don't have to queue for the tickets.
The narrow island is not terribly interesting in itself since it is mostly a residential area. If you don't feel like travelling back by the aerial tram again, there is also a metro station nearby.
Two cabins leave every fifteen minutes / go continuously during rush hours.
Round trip: $4
Senior and disabled citizens: $1 each way
Unlimited MetroCards owners have the trip for free.
