For approx $3 you can enjoy great views of the city from above (during your 5 minute ride) and from the side (once you're across on the island). As for Roosevelt Island itself, there is not a lot to do apart from look at the abandoned Smallpox Hospital, but it's nice to see the city from a different perspective (although for better views take the cruise to Liberty Island). You can take a smooth return journey and enjoy the views from Roosevelt Island within the space of an hour and would definitely recommend
