Great pic of NYC and some of its lesser known bridges across the East River.

Terrific NYC shot. Is there anything of significance (from a tourist's pov) on that tiny island in the East River?

It's essentially a spot called Hell Gate, where the Harlem River, East River and LI Sound meet. It used to be an incredibly difficult spot to navigate due to three different currents meeting at one spot. The island is uninhabited.

If you're talking about Roosevelt Island, there is the tram, new Cornell campus and Four Freedoms Park:

As Rufus said, that island (Mill Rock) is uninhabited and basically a bird sanctuary. More interesting is nearby North Brother Island in the Bronx, home to an abandoned hospital. But that too is uninhabited/a bird sanctuary for the time being. (http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/north-brother-island).

Thanks Rufus, sbarn, and bodegavendetta for the information. The park has a good view of the UN! That abandoned hospital? I'm surprised no one's come in and renovated/repurposed it.

This last one is a bit bigger as it's the only way to preserve the detail.
