I remember when there was no F train stop on Roosevelt Island, and I'd ride the tram with my mom in the morning. There's something magical about the old-fashioned tram - the way you stand there, peering out the windows over the skyline with the Queensboro Bridge looming above, it's the closest thing to flying over NYC. Use your Metrocard to board this piece of old NYC and take in the spectacular view! Oh and you might also recognize the tram from the Spider-Man movie =)
