What a fun thing to do! It's a short ride over to Roosevelt Island. Not a lot to do once you're on the island but you can take a quick walk and then take the subway or tram back. The view is spectacular.
My daughter and I rode the tramway on a recent visit. It runs on the metro card, so if you have one it is one swipe to go over and one more to return. There is not much to do on Roosevelt Island, we walked...More
Enjoy stunning views of the Manhattan Skyline and the Queensborough Bridge for the cost of a Subway Ride. $2.75 takes you between 60th Street to Roosevelt Island and Metrocards are accepted.

If you already have a metro card for your stay in New York, I would definitely work this into your plans! And if not- it's the best low-cost way to see views of NYC from the sky! The trip itself doesn't take that long- maybe...More

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
