Though technically part of Manhattan, Roosevelt Island has long felt lost, under the shadow of the Erector-Set Queensboro Bridge in New York's East River. It was once Blackwell Island, then Welfare Island, and has been home to insane asylums and prisons, then hospital outpatients and UN workers. The slightly drab, uniform housing (well, for the most part – there are new condos that glimmer slightly more) feels like an improved version of a Stalinist housing block.
