Probably the ONLY way to realistically ride your way around NYC is by metro and the subway is dirty, grimy, stinky, just overall nasty. This tramway uses the Metrocard (great for tourists and locals).
A short climb up the tower, if you are coming from...More
If you don't like heights you may want to avoid this. It is a large cable car which goes high above the East River, giving great views especially of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. Contrary to what I've read elsewhere, you CAN use your MTA...More
For the price of a Subway ride or on your MTA card get some great views of Manhattan and the river. Just 1 block behind Bloomingdale store.
Nothing much to do on Roosevelt Island a couple of restaurants and a nice looking mini Mart.
This is a great way to get a view of Manhattan at night for just the cost of a subway ride. Looking south, there is a spot where you can see the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building together. Take your photograph there.
We decided to do something different since it was our first time in the city with our son. The tramway was quick, not expense and fun. It took us to Roosevelt island, which was a nice place to walk around. It was quiet and almost...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.
