Though I had visited Roosevelt Island once before, I had never been in the ideal time of year: springtime or, more specifically, cherry blossom season. Thankfully, this year, I changed all that.
Roosevelt Island is – at least from my perspective, which could be inaccurate – not exactly chock full of things to do. But it does have a few things to recommend it, like the tram (which provides spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline) and the park (which provides all those cherry blossoms). One Saturday morning, I made my way there.
Happily, Roosevelt Island in full bloom was as dreamy as I had hoped it would be. After taking all the pictures, I settled down on a bench to read for a while. It was pretty perfect, as far as New York mornings go.
