November 30th, 2010 Roosevelt Island's
state-of-the-art Aerial Tramway returned to
service. Island visitors and residents are provided
a 3 minute ride across the river from Roosevelt
Island to East 60th
Street and vice versa. The Tram is designed with two
independently operated and powered cars shuttling
back and forth across the East River, carrying 109
passengers at a time and 2 million people annually.
Below are video
feeds from various news media websites featuring the
much anticipated Tram reopening.
