What a great way to kick of spring and see some spectacular views overlooking Manhattan while picnicking with the family at Roosevelt Island Cherry Blossom Festival. Spring isn’t officially here until the Cherry Blossom’s start blooming and providing picturesque scenery.
It’s also a great excuse to ride the Roosevelt Island Tramway while visiting the island. You can even use your MTA Metro Card! The tram connects Roosevelt Island to the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and its the ideal choice to avoid the chaos of long and congested lines on the E train subway line at the Roosevelt Island stop.
