Photographer's Note

Le Roosevelt Island Tramway est un téléphérique new-yorkais qui enjambe l'East River et relie Manhattan et Roosevelt Island.

Il monte jusqu'à 76 m au-dessus d'East River et du nord de Queensboro Bridge, offrant une très belle vue sur l'est de Midtown Manhattan, comme ici sur (entre autres) l'ONU, le Chrysler Building et l'Empire State Building.

Le téléphérique a été montré dans une scène clé de bataille du film Spider-Man de 2002 (Sam Raimi).
On le voit aussi dans Léon (Luc Besson, 1994), quand Mathilda (Nathalie Portman) l'emprunte seule.

---------------

The Roosevelt Island Tramway is an aerial tramway in New York City that spans the East River and connects Roosevelt Island to Manhattan.

At its peak it climbs to 250 feet (76 m) above the East River as it follows its route on the north side of the Queensboro Bridge, providing views of the East Side of midtown Manhattan, like here on UN, Chrysler Building and Empire State Building.

The tramway was featured prominently in a climactic battle in the 2002 film Spider-Man (Sam Raimi).
In the 1994 film Leon (The Professional, Luc Besson) it can be seen when Natalie Portman's character, Mathilda, is traveling on it alone.
