What Life Is Like Inside The Tiny Town In New York With No Cars

There are very few places in New York City where you can find yourself isolated from the chaos of yellow taxis and Uber cars flying through the streets at every hour of the day. But in a small area of the East River, city life takes on a new meaning at Roosevelt Island. Throughout history, the island has gone by several other names and has been used for numerous reasons, but today it acts as a small town of sorts, right within the Big Apple.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
