My neighborhood; in the middle of (yet detached from) a metropolis boast the first commuter aerial tram in North America. Since 1985 2 others in the U.S.A. have been built. My neighborhood also disposes of trash through an underground pneumatic tube system!! Although originally developed in Sweden, in the USA only my neighborhood and Disney World currently use this technology. The pneumatic tube system is currently being studied as a solution to big city waste across the country. (5 years and 2367 days ago)

As an answer to friskiwi -
This is a view of the tram that takes you from Roosevelt Island to E 57th street (not sure it is 57th ou 58th!rs) and 2nd avenue, in Manhattan!
Did I get that right, author?

author says:

Yes Lelaina 60th street and 2nd Avenue! My family lives on Roosevelt Island and we love it there! I actually did answer friskiwi but privately because, being new to Pxleyes, I was just unsure about the anonymity rules. I wasn't being shy

author says:

Woops... my last comment was meant for mperii
