    Great for picnics, a lot of good views, connections to South Bronx, Harlem and Astoria. Check out the RIPA Randall's Island Connector over the Bronx Kill on the North of the island.

    Free movie night in the summer, not nearly as crowded as the other free movie events in NYC. And fewer bugs at night because of the breeze off the water!

    It wasn't worth the money. The costumes were great and so were the actors but they could have done a better job. It was NOT scary and you will be disappointed. (Haunted Hayride)

    Tired of running in circles through Central Park? Run along the east river and across the bridge at 125th street to Randall's Island for 4.5 miles of pedestrian pathways-- Jess, Fit Chick in the City

    Memorable not because Electric Zoo '10 was the greatest music festival. Memorable because of how dirty we felt afterwards from all the dust. Black boogers galore!
