On the process of choosing a new accommodation before I came NYC, I did so much research work to ensure my new life get a better beginning. As far as I am concerned, Roosevelt Island is really a wise choice for me.
Roosevelt Island lies between Manhatten Island and Queens, so it has a beautiful river view all around. In terms of the architecture, several architecturally significant buildings show a long history of them. There are also many modern apartments to cater young people’s need, it is a perfect combination of the classical and modern times, so more and more youth and office workers are willing to live here. It is also a good place for running, I have made some friends when I running around as a daily exercise, and there was a 10-km running race taken place on the island several weeks ago.
I was worried whether the transportation is convenient or not before I came here, then I realized the subway, tramway car and the free Red Bus make our commuting time significantly reduced. Though the Roosevelt Island is small, the primary school, high school, hospital and supermarkets all offer a convenient environment for people who living here.
Which attract me most is the night view belong the river. When a busy day ends in Manhattan, a still busy night is continue through the multifarious bright lights, but I still prefer to keep a quite heart, just like this island, to maintain a simple inner life in the complex world.
