Isle of Meadows

The Isle of Meadows, shown in red, along the western side of Staten Island

Isle of Meadows is a 100-acre (0.40 km2) uninhabited island in the New York City borough of Staten Island in the United States. It is located along the western side of Staten Island, where Fresh Kills empties into the Arthur Kill. The island is owned by the city of New York. In the 1990s, the island escaped becoming part of the Fresh Kills Landfill. It is now a nature preserve providing important meadow and salt marsh nesting habitat for herons, ibises, and egrets, and is not accessible to the public.[1]
