Randall's Island as seen from an aircraft over the Bronx. Photo take June 22, 2015, by Roy Googin and licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license. Far center-left: Hell Gate Bridge and, behind it, the main suspension span of the Triborough Bridge. Far right, just below center: the lift-bridge segment of the Triborough Bridge connecting Randall's Island with Manhattan, and bottom right the Bronx segment. Upper right is Manhattan Island with Central Park in the middle and, beyond it, the Hudson River and New Jersey. Upper left, Queens and Brooklyn.

On Randall's Island you can see the Manhattan Pyschiatric Center (light colored buildings just left of the center of the image); and above it Ward's Island Bridge to East 103rd Street in Manhattan, and below it Icahn Stadium occupying the site or the original Randall's Island Municipal Stadium. Left center is the Ward's Island Wastewater Treatment Plant. The rest is mostly Randall's Island Park, with its playgrounds and many baseball and soccer fields. And here and there, various other institutions including the NYC Fire Academy.
