Morning View - Roosevelt Island Tram

That tiny swinging basket up there is the Roosevelt Island Tram, which was being tested yesterday after months of repairs following the stranding of 67 passengers over the East River for 11 hours, back in April. Roosevelt Island is also accessible via the subway and a small bridge on the Queens side of the island, but not via the massive Queensborough Bridge that straddles the island, pictured above under the shroud.
