The island, formerly known by various names such as Minnahononk Island, Warkens Island, Manning Island, Blackwell’s Island, and Walfar Island, has been named by Roosevelt since 1973 due to designs brought to the island by then-American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Roosevelt Island is a long thin island. This tiny island, which can be visited in just a few hours, is 3 km long and 240 meters wide. This island, which belonged to the state of New York from the early years of life on it until 1969, was leased for 99 years by the Urban Development Corporation in 1969. According to the rules of the island, which have changed since this date, it is forbidden to drive on the streets. Residents of the island must park their cars in the large parking lots assigned to them and use public transport to reach their destination on the island.
