Have you ever been to NYC’s Roosevelt Island? Many have not, even those who live just across the river in Manhattan or Queens, but that is changing. For the past decade, Roosevelt Island has been slowly developing primarily through new residential apartment buildings but now has a hotel, Graduate Roosevelt Island, to bring more than just the daily commuters who live on the island back on the tram.

This is one of NYC’s newest hotels and definitely a unique hotel in many respects. With new views of the city from the hotel’s rooftop bar, Panorama Room, Graduate Roosevelt Island has a special design and vibe to coincide with its unusual location. As in our last article, Best Hotel Rooftops in NYC, we already showcased established rooftops but this new place is poised to earn a spot on the ‘best hotel rooftops’ list.

Check out some shots here before you cue up to get on the tram…
