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, all of which have been key to its development over time. Roosevelt Island was accessed by boat beginning in the early 20th century, the Queensboro Bridge beginning in 1909, and by subway starting in 1989 with the opening of the island’s station along the IND F line.
