Roosevelt Island

  • Roosevelt Island Visitor Center (map)

Follow Judith Birdy, the President of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society on a Jane’s Walk that will go north through 1970’s new town to discover the history of the island, and learn how it has changed from an island of institutions to a residential community.
