"Astonishingly, the zoning code accounts for this piece even though it's not within a mapped zoning district: ZR 76-146 'Any island, or portion thereof, outside of the shore or pierhead lines, that is not a #public park# shall, unless otherwise designated or determined by the City Planning Commission, be considered to be in an R3-2 District.' So it seems that the only permitted use would be semi-detached townhouses. It still seems like a good deal, and the fact that a wealthy eccentric has so far failed to snap it up is a constant reminder to me of the appalling dearth of whimsy in this town."?anon [Buy Your Own Private Island in New York City for
