Randall Island is a part of Manhattan, away from Manhattan. Access this island by ferry or by road and you will be in a different place. The place offers stunning views of the Harlem River and the famous Robert Kennedy Bridge. It is peaceful to sit on one of the charming park benches and enjoy the fresh outdoor air away from the city. As serene as it can be, the island plays host to a number of music festivals and events. The island is a sight to cherish with cherry blossoms all around the green grass.
