U Thant Island is a small artificial island in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The 100-by-200-foot island, created during the construction of the Steinway Tunnel, is the smallest island in Manhattan.
The tiny artificial island is 100 by 200 feet in size and located in the East River, just south of Roosevelt Island. It lies midway between the United Nations Headquarters at 42nd Street and Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City and is legally part of the borough of Manhattan and of the coterminous county of New York.
