Roosevelt Island could be perhaps one of the most livable solutions in New York City. Living here means living on the water every day with views and space (indoor and outdoor!) Life here offers conveniences of ample outdoor space and neighborhood lifestyle that people are looking for. It is possible to relax and be comfortable at home, overlooking the greatest city in the world. For many reasons Roosevelt Islanders love the speak-easy reputation of Roosevelt Island and its oasis of calm and community living minutes away from Midtown. It 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.
More people are discovering how Roosevelt Island 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, people are able to self-park in the parking garage on the island and have a reserved spot.
The vibrant community also includes the newly developed Cornell University Tech campus with landscaped park space, cafes, and a hotel, dining at "Anything At All" and rooftop bar/club at "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 Read, Starbucks and a number of local restaurants featuring at least 7 cuisines.
The 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.
