Randalls Island and Wards Island are two parts of an island in the New York City borough of Manhattan, separated from Manhattan by the Harlem River, from Queens by the East River and Hell Gate, and from the Bronx by the Bronx Kill. Formerly, the two islands were separate, but the channel between them, Little Hell Gate, was filled in in the early 1960s. The islands had a population of 1,648 living on 2.09 square kilometers (520 acres) according to the 2010 Census.
Most of the island is part of either Wards Island and Randalls Island Parks, which cover 432.69 acres (175.10 ha). The parks offer athletic fields, a driving range, greenways, playgrounds and picnic grounds.
The islands have a history of being used for asylums, hospitals and cemeteries. The island is currently home to several public facilities, including two psychiatric hospitals, a state police station, a fire academy, a water treatment plant, and several homeless shelters.
The island is crossed by the Triborough and Hell Gate bridges. The island can be reached by the Triborough Bridge or the Wards Island Bridge, which serves pedestrians and bicyclists and links the island to East Harlem in Manhattan. A second footbridge, connecting the island to the Bronx, is scheduled to open in 2014.
