Old Roosevelt Island Tram

See the past in this fine art print. Roosevelt Island  replaced the iconic tram with a newer, faster, safer model. But the cabin here, passing a support for the Queensboro Bridge, made an entire community possible. It glided silently to and from Manhattan, crossing the East River.

See the old tram passing by in this fine art print. The Roosevelt Island  replaced it with a newer, faster and safer model but what’s interesting about these cars is that they were able to coat along beside Queensboro Bridge, making an entire community possible!

“Next to the Queensboro Bridge’s western pier on Roosevelt Island, I took this picture. The Tram was just lifting off for another trip across New York Harbor!”

About the First Roosevelt Island Tram

The tram was originally built when the Island’s first residents needed a way to commute until a new subway tunnel was built. But it was such a beloved part of life on Roosevelt Island, it stayed. The old tram, shown above, was retired in 2010, replaced by a newer model.

But we still see it every day. The relic sits gathering dust beneath a parking garage.
