Roosevelt Islanders love the speak-easy reputation of Roosevelt Island and its oasis of calm and community living minutes from the city. Roosevelt Island offers conveniences like ample outdoor space and neighborhood lifestyle that are so difficult to find anywhere else. In the age of COVID, Roosevelt Island is an attractive alternative to city living because of the abundance of community amenities and outdoor space, such as: parks, green space, gardens and community gardens, running and biking paths, swimming pools, baseball and soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, and playgrounds to name a few.
Roosevelt Island is committed to green living, and in addition to weekly composting drop-off, one is able to even forage some plants and herbs on the island, and there is a membership run community garden. Other parks include: Southpoint Park and Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park in the south and Lighthouse Park at the north end of the island. Some parks and green spaces include access to complimentary BBQ grills.
The vibrant community also includes the newly developed Cornell University Tech campus with landscaped park space, cafes, and a hotel that includes dining at Anything At All and a rooftop bar/club The Panorama Room. Further, residents have access to the New York City public library, schools, post office, the new Foodtown grocery store, two well-stocked bodegas, weekly Farmers Market, Duane Reade, Starbucks and a number of local restaurants featuring over 5 cuisines, including "The Sanctuary," "Nisi," and "Granny Annie's."
It is commutable by the MTA Roosevelt Island Tram, the F train, the Astoria Ferry line, the M86 bus line, land bridge from Astoria, and CitiBike, making it easy to get all over Manhattan, Long Island City, and Astoria in about 20 minutes.
Also, perhaps more important now than ever, one is able to self-park in the garage on the island and have a reserved spot. Enjoy all the conveniences of city living, with a suburban setting, minutes from the city!
