The History of Transportation on Roosevelt Island

With the iconic red tramway soaring above, the IND 63rd Street subway line below, and the NYC Ferry docking on its shores, Roosevelt Island has no shortage of transportation options.

 

Beginning in the early 20th century, when it was called something entirely different, Roosevelt Island was accessed by boat. The Queensboro Bridge provided service and access to the island in 1909, and the subway finally arrived in 1989 with the opening of the island's station on the F line.

 

Join Acting Collections Manager Daniel Brenner for a digital discussion where we will learn the detailed histories behind each mode of transportation as they appeared on Roosevelt Island. Discover the island’s geography, how it came it be inhabited, and possibilities for the future.
