Yes, There's a lift Bridge on the east side of Roosevelt Island that you'd have to deal with if you went up that side. That's why I mention to stay left of the island going toward the sound, and right coming toward the hudson, where there are no bridges to be concerned with.

There are times..when they'll close the west side if there's a big shindig at the United Nations, so it's always good to double check the weekly Notice to Mariners.
