Roosevelt Isle Hike+ Overhead Tram River Ride to Manhattan

 Meet at 10:45 start walk at 11:00.

The walk is along the shorefront paths of Roosevelt Island and then through the Monument Park at the southern end of the island. We estimate the length to be about three miles altogether.

The view of the east side of Manhattan's buildings and skyline is gorgeous. The air is much cleaner than between the buildings of the city and the walk is relaxing. We will end the walk back at the "F" train station where those of us who want, can get lunch at one of the several restaurants nearby

As a bonus, there is the overhead Tram Ride over the East River into Manhattan. It only costs one subway fare on your Metrocard And ends between  second and third ave at 59th street.   

We would like to ask you for a donation of one dollar to help offset the cost meet up charges to these events

    Are we meeting upstairs in the station, or on the platform. And totally confused by all the F notices. So, coming from Queens, the F train WILL stop on Roosevelt Island. Correct?

    I just checked the subway notices board. The F train will be making all local stops between Roosevelt avenue and 21st Queensbridge. Coming BACK to Queens (if you dont take the tram) we will have to take the F MANHATTAN bound to 47th - 50th Street then cross over to the QUEENS bound train which will run on the E line. See you tomorrow.

    More on "F" train.
    Supposed to make all local stops in Queens ,then run on "E" line till 47-50th street. You should change over tracks on 47-50th to go back to Queens and then get off at Roosevelt Island station.

    Remember; we meet at the Roosevelt Island "F" train station! Check on train schedule before you go to see if the train stops are not changed due to track work. Hope you all can make it! CYA There!

    "F" train may not stop westbound from Queens at Roosevelt Isle station due to MTA track maintenance work. Take the train to 47-50th street station and cross over the tracks to get a Queens bound "F" train to the Roosevelt Isle station. Check trains schedule before going!
