Islands

UThantbelmontisland.jpg

The largest cemetery in the United States is right here in New York City, on Hart Island in the Bronx.  There's a sovereign nation on U Thant Island just below Roosevelt Island.  And you'll find thriving seaside communities on City Island and Broad Channel.  Learn about some of New York City's smaller, lesser- known islands with Kate and Kathleen in this episode  of ABC Gotham. But keep your kayak away from the islands that are off- limits bird sanctuaries, or the double- crested cormorants will squawk your head off!  (Seriously.  They will.)
