Roosevelt Island

oldest building on Roosevelt Island, NYC

"What's that?", you're thinking, "Is that a house?" Believe it or not, we have a few around NYC, especially once you get out of Manhattan. This one is the oldest building on Roosevelt Island, located in the East River between Manhattan and Queens.

Happy Mother's Day!

my friend named her baby Ellis Roosevelt Lyons - Ellis Lyons sounds like Ellis Island, so I always think of NYC when I see him....I thought it was funny she picked the two islands in NYC to name her son!

Nice photo. It is of Blackwell House built in 1794, the fifth oldest wooden house surviving in NYC.

May I post your photo on my blog?

Great shot I really dig the contrast between the old and new.It comes from a nice angle.
