New York Rentals – Roosevelt Island

Call it the East East Side: geographically, Roosevelt Island is in the East River. It's perhaps more accurate, though, to describe Roosevelt Island as a neighborhood unto itself -- east of Manhattan, west of Queens, and somewhere very different than the average New York City neighborhood. A small and unpretentious residential neighborhood in a distinctive location, Roosevelt Island is one of the most unique places to live in all of New York City, and has a distinguished architectural history all its own. With easy mass transit links to midtown Manhattan thanks to a subway stop on the V train and the scenic Tramway, rental apartments on Roosevelt Island rank among the best values in New York City real estate.

Let's be clear: Roosevelt Island is an unusual place. Where else in New York City would you expect to find stunning city views, acres of green space, and even some classic suburban peace and quiet -- on an island that used to store prisoners? There's not much in the way of shopping or dining on Roosevelt Island -- there's some, but life on Roosevelt Island really is more akin to life in a suburban neighborhood than living in Manhattan -- but Bloomingdale's and a host of acclaimed restaurants and popular bars are just one subway stop away. Despite that proximity and Roosevelt Island's ubiquituous stunning city views, though, it feels further: living on Roosevelt Island is not like living anywhere else in New York City.

Roosevelt Island offers as unique a living experience as New York City has to offer, but thanks to a number of luxury rental apartment buildings, Roosevelt Island is also home to a number of elegant apartments for rent that rival any real estate listings in Manhattan. The amenity-laden apartments for rent at Manhattan Park are only the beginning of what Roosevelt Island has to offer. It's no surprise, really: because Roosevelt Island is a neighborhood unlike any other in New York City, it makes sense that this unique little neighborhood is home to luxury rental apartments unlike any other apartments for rent in Manhattan.
