Roosevelt Island Reviews
Roosevelt Island is like a secret hiding spot in NYC. It's completely unlike any other part of the city. It's also within such close proximity to all the activity and buzz if needed, however once you leave the busy city life, you are able to come back and relax in your own quiet, peaceful neighborhood.
I love the sense of community Roosevelt Island has I just wished it was more affordable to live on the island.
Its being great alot of fun activties around the island I live in. Every thing is nearby and easier to get stuff you want like a shop and the post office just door steps away.
