Roosevelt Island Real Estate
Roosevelt Island apartments offer residents a unique living situation involving a quiet environment, affordable real estate prices and a short commute into mainland Manhattan. Located between Manhattan and Queens in the East River, Roosevelt Island is a narrow strip of land about two miles long and 800 feet wide (at its widest point) that totals only 147 acres.
Most of the buildings on the island, which is owned by the city and leased to New York’s Urban Development Corporation, are rental apartment buildings. A limited number of co-op and condo buildings can also be found there. The Octagon, a restored institutional facility, is one of the primary luxury apartment buildings located on Roosevelt Island. The edifice was reopened in 2006, has eight sides (no surprise from its name) and 500 units, which are inhabited by both affluent and middle-class citizens.
Transportation to and from the island is serviced through Roosevelt Island tram station, the city’s F subway line, and the Q102 bus (although the island was designed to be automobile-free). One primary supermarket and a variety of smaller businesses populate the roadway of the island. Although restaurants and a bar scene have been a bit scarce, several new spots are planned over time.
Two of the most attractive aspects of living in Roosevelt Island are its views and parks. The area is filled with sports fields, a walking and running path and greenery everywhere one looks. Many apartments provide great views of Manhattan and the East River, which is a major selling point for prospective residents.
