Roosevelt Island Greenway Professional Review and Guide
"Roosevelt Island is one of New York City’s best- kept secrets when it comes to stress- free biking. The 147-acre island is circumscribed by a narrow shorefront pathway, shared by cyclists, joggers, and pedestrians. Water views and sweeping city skylines accompany you throughout this leisurely journey that gives a unique perspective on New York City. Southpoint and FDR Four Freedoms Park, at the south end of the 2-mile- long island, are great for exploring on foot and taking a break."
