Randall’s Island Park Alliance

Literary Program

Randall’s Island Park offers vast acres of green space, woodlands, and beautiful gardens running along the East and Harlem Rivers. It provides a place of contemplation for writers, historians, poets, and others who visit the Park as a refuge from the cacophony of life in New York City.​ Travelers along the Island’s miles of waterfront pathways can experience stunning views of Manhattan, and the six bridges that span the sky and connect Randall’s Island to the Bronx, Manhattan and Queens.
