Hunter Island is a small island in northeast Bronx, New York. The lagoon nearby was used for Olympic regatta training in the 1960s. Hunter Island is now connected to the nearby Twin Island and Rodman's Neck by landfill and sunken barges. These islands were privately owned before the city bought them to create Pelham Bay Park. Hunter Island was once owned by State Senator John Hunter, a wealthy auctioneer and farmer. Hunter Island is home to the Kazimiroff Nature Trail.
