When Mr Monkey got to Roosevelt Island, the first thing he did was to cross the road from the subway station to look at the Upper East Side of Manhattan and at the eastern half of the East River. Strangely, Roosevelt Island didn't appear in any of Mr Monkey's guide books, which might something to do with the island being leased to the State of New York until 2068.
You can read all about Roosevelt Island at the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation website.
