The spooky building in the picture above is the remains of the Smallpox Hospital, a New York City landmark and one of the many hospital buildings of Roosevelt Island, the tiny island between Manhattan and Queens, connected to both by the Queensboro Bridge.
Once you get off the tramway (more on that in the coming post) or the subway, you can choose to take the red bus to go around the island, or walk around as we did. Here are some of the inhabitants of the island:
In the southernmost part of the Island, in 2012, the nice Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park opened. Unfortunately, it was closed on the day we visited so... next time!
