Visit Roosevelt Island With Awesome 360 Degree Panoramic View From Google Maps - Pretty Neat!

Roosevelt Island's Southpoint and Lighthouse Park are not among the finalist's from last month's online poll seeking places for Google's Street View Trike to visit but New York's Central Park and Bronx Zoo made the final cut.

No need for Roosevelt Island residents to despair and feel our perpetual annoyance at being ignored or slighted by the outside world because Google Maps has taken some great 360 degree panoramic images of our little Island.

Starting at the Roosevelt Island Tram Station

and continuing through Southtown's Riverwalk development with the East River and Manhattan Skyline in view

heading past the F train subway station, Duane Reade, Starbucks and towards Main Street.

It's too bad though that Southpoint and Lighthouse Park did not get the Google Map View but here's a great panoramic view from Southpoint Park and another from Lighthouse Park. Better enjoy the waterfront views from Southpoint Park now because they may soon be gone forever if the proposed Kahn/FDR Memorial Boondoggle ever gets built. Let's hope this project never gets started!

Howdy, There's no doubt that your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems. When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues.

I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that,
excellent site!

Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments
are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?

Thanks a lot!
