    Reveling in the heart of the Big Apple on Roosevelt Island

    Whether you come across to Roosevelt Island on the dangling Tramway, or over the hulking steel rises of the iconic Queensboro Bridge, you'll almost certainly feel like you're entering a quintessential corner of the Big Apple. For decades, this long finger of land that sits in the currents of the East River has witnessed Manhattan soar up around it. Roosevelt Island vacation rentals now come with breathtaking views over the famous skyline, along with interesting little lighthouse parks, pretty riverside walkways, redbrick churches, and a clutch of local restaurants all on the doorstep to boot.

    Roosevelt Island means action-packed excursions

    Once you've bagged the perfect Roosevelt Island vacation rental, you can look forward to having a prime base right in the heart of the Big Apple. Urban adventures abound here, whether that means guided tours of Downtown Manhattan, jaunts to Broadway for world-class theater productions, cooking classes with the Sicilian maestros of Little Italy, or just a stroll through Central Park. Boating on the East River is also a great idea for whiling away a day, drifting between the skyscrapers from the Upper Bay to Long Island Sound.

    Tramway trips across the East River from Roosevelt Island

    There's no better way to kick-start a vacation in this part of New York City than by riding the iconic gondola of the Roosevelt Island Tramway. First opened in 1976, it transports travelers across the waters of the East River, and offers up breathtaking views of Downtown Manhattan as it dangles and drifts from bank to bank. Other attractions in the district include the handsome redbrick Chapel of the Good Shepherd, dating to the 1880s, and the pretty South Point Park for cycle tracks and riverside walks.

    Roosevelt Island keeps going throughout the year

    You can rest assured that you'll have an action-packed trip to New York City, no matter which month you book your Roosevelt Island vacation rental. Each season has its own draws, starting with the enchanting festivities of the Christmas period, when ice rinks erupt in nearby Central Park and the Big Apple buzzes with cheer. Then there's spring and summer, which mean top weather for touring the lighthouse parks and watching the sunset over Manhattan between May and August, while September vacations boast fall colors and wallet-friendly accommodation rates.

    Wedged into the Big Apple on Roosevelt Island

    Roosevelt Island sits straddling the currents of the East River, which isn't actually a river at all but rather an important tidal strait that connects the Upper Bay to Long Island Sound. The whole area is surrounded by the urban spread that makes up NYC, with the districts of Long Island itself to the east, and the soaring skyscrapers of Manhattan to the west. You'll never be too far from a leafy park though, with South Point Park and the green spaces of the North Point Lighthouse both offering waterside walkways, and wildflower meadows in the spring.
