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 value in New York City real estate.

Roosevelt Island is a truly unique 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? 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. 4

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.
