Roosevelt Island Tram

You probably know there is a tram or "Red Bus" to Roosevelt Island that soars high above the city and gives people sweeping views of the Big Apple.

You can get on board on 59h street and literally fly over NYC for five minutes, all for only $2.

If you've never done it, this video gives you a good idea of what the ride is like. And if you want more info on how to get on board, go here.

Interesting side note: the Roosevelt Island tram is the only aerial lift in any city in the country. Yet another unique thing about this most unique of cities.
