You're looking at the future of Roosevelt Island.  To your left is the Riverwalk, a luxury housing development of rentals, condos, and housing for medical staff begun in 2003.  As of 2014, there are 6 towers with 1,202 units, and a seventh tower expected to be completed in 2015.  To your right is Firefighter’s Field, which hosts a variety of sports and leisure activities.  In between the towers is open space for leisure and new commercial ventures, which includes Starbucks, Nonno's Focacceria & Pizzeria, and the River Walk Bar & Grill.

    Have you fallen in love with this island yet?  Why not see if something's available HERE?

    We've reached the end of this tour, and you're right back where you started. If you're tired, why not go grab something to eat or relax in one of the many parks? The Red Bus stops right nearby.  If you're more adventurous, why not continue on and take the North Tour and learn more about this interesting island?

    We really appreciate you taking this tour with us.  Thank you for letting us share this amazing island with you.  There is much more to see than what we have shown you today.  Check out the definitive History of Roosevelt Island written by RIHS President Judith Berdy, or another souvenir available at the Visitor's Kiosk, which is to your left or online. The Event Calendar  lists many of upcoming celebrations and activities on Roosevelt Island. Why not frequent the stores on Main Street?  Or invite someone on picnic to Lighthouse Park?  The history of Roosevelt Island has already been established.  How we remember and celebrate it depends on you.
